    Dr. Kinnas takes good care of our whole family. We have had nothing but pleasant visits for many years. His dedication to his patients is beyond compare. One time he met my wife and I at the ER during a late weekend hour to care for her. How many doctors would do this? Love the man.

    Thank you so much for your help with my insurance. Without your help I would not have been able to figure it out on my own. You guys are great. Everyone in the office is very friendly and professional.

    I would definitely recommend Dr, Kinnas to anyone I know. I have been going to him for years now and would not go anywhere else. He is thorough, patient, attentive and very knowledgeable. He always makes sure he is up to date on any issues I may have or had in the past. I have never had a problem trying to get in to see him. His staff always goes above and beyond to meet my scheduling needs and they are so nice. BTW the office has a new look and it looks great. Nothing bad to say here.

    My aunt started complaining of blurry vision. She made an appointment and went to see Dr. Kinnas. He was very thorough in his examination and explained every detail to us about her macular degeneration. He then proceeded to answer all her questions before even starting the recommended injection treatments. The treatments have helped a lot and my aunt is very happy to be able to see again.
