December 28, 2012

Dr. Kennedy is a rare find in this day of over-legislated medicine. I found great wisdom and comfort in his desire to collect all of my medical records from various entities so that he could truly function as my family doctor. Frankly, I've been waiting for that since my childhood-adolescence doctor who made house calls in the 1950's and 1960's. Hang on to Dr. Kennedy; there are not enough like him anymore.

May 12, 2012

good

May 04, 2012

The first time I met with Dr. Kennedy, he went through at a computer with the information about what a woman my age needed to do. We went through it, and made a list of things I needed to do. We alos listed my history and all medicines. Each time I go in, the information is updated. It is SO thorough, and includes reminders on upcoming things I need to do. I have been especially impressed with my copy that shows what we talked about, what the doctor will do, and what I am supposed to do. It is such a help !!! I don't remember everthing on my own, but the copy is something I can refer to from time to time. Also, after any test, I get a timely report, either by phone or by mail, that tells me the results. That is so comforting. I REALLY LIKE THE FEEDBACK! And I've never had so much quidance about taking care of my own health before.

May 04, 2012

Dr. Kennedy and other staff are very professional and likable. I do recommend him to people. I actually enjoy my visits to the office.

March 27, 2012

As always, Dr. Kennedy and his staff listened and were concerned.

March 27, 2012

Dr. Kennedy took one look at me and in 5 seconds was extremely concerned about me. He knew instantly I was not emotionally stable. He took more than the normal time to consult with me and I left feeling better, and followed his instructions. My emotions are better now, although not on 8 cylinders. I could not be more please with his treatment. it is 5 star even if I am a a useless patient.

March 02, 2012

Grateful for such expert and caring professions at this office.

March 01, 2012

Dr. Kennedy is a great doctor. I'm always amazed at how he never seems rushed and will stay and listen until everything is taken care of. He is very courteous and conscientious. His not seeming rushed and his high level of patience is probably what I like most about it. Whenever I go to a specialist I feel like I have to beg them to stay and give me more than 2 minutes of their time before they go rushing out. Dr. Kennedy never does that.

February 14, 2012

Dr. Kennedy has always shown great concern for my health and has been very helpful in sending me to specialists when further treatment is needed. He doesn't make me feel rushed. He takes the time needed.

Please don't disregard my survey just because I checked very good on everything. Dr. Kennedy is really very good. He is a great doctor. He will be our family doctor for as long as possible. Please don't let him go anywhere. His bed-side manner is about the best I've ever seen for a doctor. He takes the time necessary to listen. He is very thorough and knowledgable.
