very good

April 28, 2014

My visit with Dr, KiniKini was very pleasant

April 14, 2014

He's the best

February 03, 2014

very good

November 25, 2013

This was the first time my condition was ever really explained to me in detail. I felt very confident and relieved for my condition. It wasn't as serious as what I had thought.

November 18, 2013

I normally see Dr. Kraiss but Dr. Kinikini made me feel comfortable.

October 14, 2013

This care provider is wonderful. I felt comfortable with him.

July 22, 2013

We have been working with Dr. Kinikini for about 1 year for this problem. And each visit he has completely explained everything. the progress we have made, what to expect. I have been completely satisfied with the care and concern him and his staff have shown us each time we have been there. I also appreciate how willing they are to help schedule things for us. We live two plus hours away, and if there is multiple things to be done, they go above and beyond to get them scheduled for the same day.

May 27, 2013

Overall my experience in this clinic was very good. The MA was exceptional.

May 07, 2013

This care provider was all a person could wish for in treatment, follow-ups, and time spent on me. My confidence in this doctor is of the highest esteem. I would definitely recommend him to any and everyone with a cardiovascular problem

March 18, 2013

Dr Kinikini answered all of my questions, gave me the information I needed about my health to understand my condition. He took an ample amount of time examining me. He is professional and knowledgeable, which is what you need in a vascular surgeon.

February 04, 2013

I am impressed with all the staff you have and especially Dr. Kinikini, excellent MD in all areas. Dr. Kinikini has great bed-side manner and his knowledge, which seem in-depth, is conveyed in a way, me, the patient can understand.

December 26, 2012

Dr. Kinikini and Dr. Working were great! They answered all questions and concerns. Great bedside (or in this case, exam table side) personality.

December 10, 2012

My experience was both good and bad. While I feel confident in the physician, he also made me feel that my case was very low on his priority of cases. While I understand that he may deal with many more complex conditions than mine--giving me confidence in his care--the net result was that I left feeling that he felt I had wasted his time. I still have not heard back from his assistant that was supposed to schedule my appointment to fix my veins, although it's been more than a week.

November 19, 2012

I get all questions answered by those who attend.

November 07, 2012

Outstanding medical professionals!

September 17, 2012

Always leave feeling much better about my medical issues when leaving. :)

July 02, 2012

By the time that I got to my appt. I had learned quite a bit about my problem and considered canceling the appt. I am "so" happy that I did not because Dr. Kinikini and his group really taught me a great deal because of the scan and thorough explanation

April 20, 2012

Dr. Kinikini, Dee and all the care providers have always treated me very well.

March 09, 2012

I asked questions and was cut off many times. I was treated like I just wanted surgery. The last thing I want I surgery. I wanted someone to take the time to figure out this problem. I almost got up and walked out.

February 10, 2012

Both Dr. Kinikini and the resident Dr. Bice were excellent and attentive
