- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

My husband and I have been going to Dr. Kearney for many years, and have never had a bad experience on any visit. He takes his time with you, and does not rush you like many other doctors do. He will not hesitate to refer you to a specialist, or order tests, if needed. Also, he sees every patient personally. His staff has always been very helpful.
Dr. Kearney was genuinely concerned for my health and well being. Did not push medications and discussed other options. Some staff members were very attentive and courteous. BUT, I have fought with the coding of their billing 3 times now and have decided to move to another doctor. They find ways to code visits in order to get the most money from the insurance company and the patient. My wellness visits were coded as diagnostic and therefore not fully covered by insurance. When I challenged this, I was told "it was not going to be changed." I was also told that I "did not specifically request wellness visits." Isn't that what a yearly check-up is? I was unaware I needed to specify this when making appointments. My wife was supposedly "diagnosed" with a condition that was found years prior by another doctor. It took me months to get this changed and even the insurance company was perplexed at what was going on at their office. My wife had to call to get test results and was brushed off when she had questions about them. I really liked Dr. Kearney, but some staff members have pushed too far. Lost 2 patients over staff issues...pretty sad.
Dr. Kearney has been my doctor for more than 7 years and I have always found him to be very professional and caring in his treatment of me. I feel very fortunate to have such an excellent doctor.
