Dr. McKinnon is great with *** and remembered him from his last visit. She is very personable and can relate well on his level.


Jennifer McKinnon is an excellent practitioner. She is kind, patient-centered and thorough. I appreciate that she interacts directly with *** and challenges him to adopt healthier practices, such as a balanced diet.


Jennifer McKinnon is the best! She took her time with our newborn, answered our concerns regarding cardiology and echo results. Submitted for a cardiology referral right away. Even watched our baby nurse to be sure she was latching and eating properly. Have never had a provider give such care and time to a patient/parents.


Jennifer McKinnon has very good bedside manner. She interacts directly with *** first and then follows up with any concerns I might have. I appreciate her thorough approach.


Great like always!


Dr. McKinnon was caring, kind & wonderful.


Dr. McKinnon was awesome!


We always feel well cared for at this pediatricians office. Our provider listens to our concerns and treats us respectfully. So glad we made the change a year ago to this provider!


Always a great experience with ***. 1st time seeing McKinnon. Really enjoyed her and she was great with my son. The nurse was also very sweet and sympathetic to my son not feeling well.


Always very friendly and knowledgeable. Explained to Karmen what she would be doing and made sure she was comfortable while completing the exam.

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.

As of December 31, 2016, Jennifer Mckinnon did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
