Dr. Kenton was fabulous! I have had many complications following the birth of my son and she squeezed me in very quickly. She was so empathetic to my situation and did many tests during my first visit to help with my problem. She was very kind, understanding and approachable. I wish I had gone to her sooner. Very thankful to have her taking care of me now.

Dr. Kenton relieved my anxiety about my possible rectal prolapse and made some recommendations for trying some physical therapy. Dr. Linda Brubaker did my vaginal prolapse surgery in July 2013 and mesh sling for incontinence at Loyola medical center. Dr. Kenton was one of her residents at the time. Now that Dr. Brubaker left the Chicagoland area, it only makes sense to see Dr. Kenton as she was trained by the best. I will be seeing Dr Kenton at Northwestern in Chicago for an appointment to assess the next steps.

Very thoughtful comprehensive process from questionnaire to more in depth wisercare to assist a person to think about their views on treatment and better identify symptoms, to thoughtful meeting with a patient skilled sensitive nurse who helped patient/me narrow down talking points which helps thinking (as patients thinking can be interrupted by anxiety when seeing the doctor which does not help the doctor think about their situation) to then seeing the doctor where a thoughtful pointed intelligent discussion with provisional diagnosis and recommendations made. Exceptional comprehensive assessment and I feel emotionally and physically cared for by a team of highly capable persons I can trust.
