Patient Comments (4)
in Goose Creek, SC |
Cannot contact the doctor if you have a problem, and cannot get a timely appointment. If you are comfortable with getting your care from Emergency Room doctors, then by all means, choose Dr. Kennedy as your cardiologist. Sad, because he is a good doctor and probably doesn't fully realize -- although I've told him and he has apologized -- that his office staff makes him so inaccessible.

Dr. Kennedy is very concerned with issues and has extremely valid remedies for any cardiac complications. I was fortunate with a simple A-Fib which he treated immediately. I feel very comfortable under his cardiac care.

Dr. Kennedy is about the best around. I trust his decisions and am very comfortable with him. He listens and advises, dosn't rush, and does not leave things to chance. Thanks Dr. Kennedy. Bob Leuci

Dr. Kennedy is a very caring doctor. He listens to what you say, explains things in a way that you understand them, does not rush the patient. He is patient with us older folks and has a good sense of humor.
