Dr. Kennedy is a wonderful doctor. He is genuinely interested in your problems and devoted to finding ways to make your life easier. He is very kind and actually listens; he trusts his patients and will actually prescribe you actual anxiety medications instead of sticking you on vistaril like Peninsula. Downside: his receptionist is the most unpleasant woman I've met in person. She has absolutely no empathy for mental health problems, and every interaction seems to personally offend her.
