Dr. McKinney not only has great knowledge and skill that makes him a top physician, but also a personality and bedside manner to match. It would be difficult to find a better cardiologist in a large city let alone Somerset KY.

Dr. McKinney is a very knowledgeable cardiologist. His office staff, his APRN, and Dr. McKinney were very helpful with my needs. I was taken care of quickly and professionally. I highly recommend him to anyone.

I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. This person has been my cardiologist now for almost 2 years, and with in those 2 years, his office has refused to refill needed heart medication that I need, refused to fill needed paperwork that only a cardiologist has the right to fill out, and good luck on being able to get a quick response to a life and death mater. It took me 1 month to get an answer to a yes or no question about two medications that would interact badly with each other.

I had a heart crisis that left me with a hospital-referred cardiologist. I was rapidly going downhill and after a year and a half of declining health, I decided to try someone else. Finding Dr. McKinney was the best thing I ever did - for my peace of my mind AND my health. He explained exactly what my condition was, what I could expect and what could be done to help me. Then he helped me make the right decisions and took the steps to make me whole again. I shall be eternally grateful.
