Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. McKinney "My father died of a heart attack when I was in my teens. I remember the pain and fear of that event. I try to bring that experience to my patients and my practice. I want to be the doctor my family needed. I may not always achieve that goal, but my efforts have been noticed by many of my patients, and that gives me great pride. I believe all doctors should put themselves in the patients place and treat the patient the way they would want to be treated. I believe a physician should perform procedures at the skill level they would want for themselves. For the procedures I do, I make an effort to stay updated and maintain my skills at the highest level. If I don't feel like an expert at something, i leave it to those who are. I enjoy the practice of cardiology because of the positive impact I can make on a patient. One of the biggest complements I receive is when a patient refers a family or friend. I have been fortunate to have many such referrals over the years."

Patient Comments (2)
Somerset, KY |
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.
The post does not have a name so I cannot look into the details of the issues raised. We pride ourselves on having a friendly competent staff, easy access and rapid response times to our patients needs. We do not generally fill out disability forms as cardiac problems typically do not qualify. This is left to the primary care provider as they have a wider knowledge of the patients overall condition. We do, however, provide all available documentation for disability determination.

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.
