What People Say About Dr. Howard Kenney, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Horrible. No compassion. Doesn't care about patients, only cares about a paycheck. Never in my life have I been condescended to so badly. I even got some rejection letter in the mail from him saying to be grateful my diagnosis wasnt worse! I couldnt believe it. He gave me a b.s. blanket diagnosis after 1 test and basically shoved me out of the door. No answers. No help. Not a second thought. If you are struggling with a big scary new diagnosis don't go here, you'll feel worse after you leave.

This office is MUCH to big to give even adequate care. You are lucky if you can even get in to see any of the docs more than once a year-they hand you off to their inept staff. What was most disturbing is I was not educated on the medications I received and suffered extreme withdrawal side effects when going off them. Had I known, I would never have taken them. Sorry Dr. Kenny you get a big thumbs down + zero stars and I will do my best to make sure no one else goes through what I did.
