Patient Comments (1)
in Plainfield, IL |
Dr. Kennedy is an amazing doctor who's personality makes my otherwise stressful kidney checkups a lot less scary. She's excellent at explaining my lab results in layman's terms and is always more than willing to address all my kidney-related concerns. I highly recommend her for patients like me who are terrified of kidney disease. She gave me lots of pamphlets on how diet and exercise make a huge difference in kidney function. I highly recommend her.
