On my initial visit with Dr Kenis she ordered prompt testing for what she considered a " suspicious lump" The tests showed no lump. Dr. Kenis refused to accept these results insisting that she had definitely felt a lump and that she was referring me to a specialist. When I questioned the necessity of this she stated that she probably couldn't treat a patient who wouldn't follow her instructions; so, we have parted ways! The emotional stress and anxiety caused by the entire experience were horrible. FYI: Since that visit, another doctor of mine, during my annual check-up, has verified the accuracy of the tests. : : The emotional stress and anxiety caused by this entire experience were horrible. Needless to say, Dr Kenis and I have parted ways!
I'm writing this review because I saw all the negative reviews on Dr. Kenis and was completely shocked! I found her to be quite remarkable! She was my primary doctor for over 10 plus years, up until about a year and a half ago and insurance changing. I never had an issue getting an appointment the same day and her staff always did their best to work with my time constraints! Dr. Kenis was always very kind, respectful and caring in her approach with me. Any medications she gave me, I always had to follow-up in 3-6 months. I would rather have that kind of care then a doctor who gives pills out like candy! I really wish she still accepted my insurance because I have not had any treatment with family doctors since leaving her. Her medical assistants were always very kind and understanding. Silvia was always so nice! I wish I could see Dr. Kenis again because my care hasn't been the same!
I was a patient of Dr. Kenis and she was totally incompetent. She is afraid to diagnose anything and always wants to send patients to a specialist. She lacks compassion and is very uptight probably because she doesn't have confidence in what she is doing. She sent me to a specialist and they said she never should have done that. In addition, her medical assistant was rude and abrasive.
