Physician Profile

Family and service bring Dr. Riney home

Chris Riney was born to be a surgeon. Originally from Owensboro, he followed his love of science and desire to impact people’s lives all the way through medical school at the University of Louisville and a residency in Urology at Penn State.

“I always wanted to be a surgeon due to the ability to correct many disease processes with a single procedure,” he said. He chose Urology as a specialty because it embodies the best characteristics of a surgeon: expert medical knowledge combined with top-notch skills.

Dr. Riney is equally at home in the clinic exam room and in the operating room. He loves the people he works with, and he takes the time to develop a relationship with his patients. “My philosophy of care is simple – treat every patient as if they are a family member,” he said. “This way, everyone gets the highest quality care from their provider.”

Dr. Riney and his wife are enjoying being near her family in Louisville and living in the town where he grew up. “Being able to work at a new state-of-the-art hospital in my hometown is truly a privilege,” he said.
