One of the reasons I picked Dr Karen Kinsley is because she was recommended by others for spending time with her patients and listening to them and they were correct. Dr Kinsley spent time listening to my concerns and background before we agreed to path forward.

Dr. Kinsley is by far the best primary care physician I have seen in a long time. I had some concerns that I was very afraid/emotional about discussing and she made me feel so open and comfortable about discussing everything I needed with her. She was so caring, supportive and offered me several options for the care I needed and worked with me to decide on the best treatment plan. She is such a wonderful doctor and a wonderful person.

Originally wanted to get my medications straightened out. Felt comfortable enough to open up about my weight issues and we decided to add one new medication to try.

Even though I had to waist, I was very happy with how attentive Dr Kinsley was to my concerns. She typed while looking at me while I was explaining the situation and she took time on the issue I had. Asked if there was anything else she could help with. There was. She addressed it. She also noticed it was time for my mammogram so she set up an order for it in mychart. I appreciated her being attentive to all of those things.
