SHC Patient, Apr 2016

Dr. Kenny is compassionate & delivers excellent care.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

I'm older and used to more interaction - you know, like the doctor actually LOOKING at your body for moles or other irregularities. Physicians stare at the computer screen now. I realize that they have to update information, but it's very impersonal. My doctor is fine and no more guilty of this than any other, I'm just use to knowing my doctor and having a relationship with them.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

Dr Kenny is the best!!

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

Dr. took a phone call on her cell phone during my exam and did not step out of the room :-(

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Dr. Kenny is wonderful! She explained all possibilities.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Dr. Kenny has always had the best bedside doctoring. She's has always given me detailed information about whatever condition or illness we're dealing with. Whenever she's had to refer me to a specialist they reiterate what she's already told me. I have complete confidence and trust in her.

Dr. Kenny is a wonderful professional, we couldn't be happier that she is our Mom's Primary Doctor.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Dr. Kathleen Kenny is the finest doctor (Primary Care Provider) that I have ever had in all the years of dealing with medical personnel. She is so professional but more importantly than that she is extremely knowledgeable about medicine. She cares and shows a tremendous amount of empathy for the patient and that is extremely important. You don't feel like a number when you visit Dr. Kenny. You feel like she 'has your back' and that she really cares and wants to help. I would highly recommend her to my family and friends. She has been extremely helpful to me and I am very grateful for that help.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Excellent Provider !

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Dr. Kathleen Kenny exemplifies excellence in a primary care physician. Her compassion and commitment to this patient (me) has been phenomenal. She takes time to explain things, to ask pertinent questions and to examine to make certain that all information is provided. Her follow-through after the appt. is very good. I have nothing but respect and admiration for this physician and for all she has done for me as her patient. If there were more physicians like Dr. Kathleen Kenny, the world would be a much better place!!!
