Dr. Keneally has the worst bedside manner of any physician I have ever encountered. Every other staff member (Nurses, front desk, other surgeons)I have interacted with at his office have been wonderful. Do yourself a favor and meet with one of the other physicians at his practice.

This Doctor is extremely curt. He has no bedside manner at all. When we asked him questions about his treatment plan and the procedures he was recommending it was clear he did not want to explain or clarify anything.

Dr. Keneally diagnosed my ear problem. It was unusual but he figured it out right away. Limited the testing to the minimum needed to confirm his conclusion. He gave me some simple solutions. I never had any issues after that. Highly educated and very kind and practical.

Terrible bedside manner. His appointment was a waste of money. I waited for him for longer than he was actually in the room.
