Dr. Kennedy and his staff literally saved my life! Dr. Kennedy is a highly skilled surgeon and extremely knowledgeable about hyperparathyroidism. My quality of life has returned as a result of my parathyroidectomy that Dr. Kennedy performed last month. I am so happy to give him my highest recommendation!

Dr. Kennedy has been my (breast) doctor for 5 yrs now. He's AWESOME . He's very kind and cares a great deal about his patient's wellbeing .

The amounts claimed by J Kennedy MD for his services constitute price gouging. He claimed $175 for a 5 minute consult. He also claimed over $2,000.00 for a thirty minute procedure and this amount, too, is excessive, especially in context with the fees charged by the main surgeon and her assistant, who both performed much longer and just as involved procedures.

I was glad I found Dr.Kennedy to do my parathyroid surgery. Before I met Dr.Kennedy my doctors had not been able to localize the diseased glands through Ultrasound, MRI and a Sestamibi scan. Dr. Kennedy was able to find the diseased glands and remove them during the surgery. The incision made in the base of my neck is scarcely visible. I believe that Dr. Kennedy is a highly skilled surgeon and would definitely recommend him.
in Lawrenceville, GA |
I highly recommend Dr. Kennedy for anyone with hyperparathyroidism. Advocate for yourself and get the surgery. It WILL change your life :-). Dr. Kennedy is a kind and compassionate surgeon and his office staff is absolutely wonderful.
in Decatur, GA |
Excellent & memorable experience. Dr. Kennedy resolved my husband's issue with a cyst on his back in one short office visit. Done with local anesthesia rather than being put under the knife with general anesthetics which another general surgeon had recommended for my husband even though he is a stroke risk. Dr. Kennedy agreed with us that would not have been a wise choice and proceeded to effectively and efficiently remove the cyst which had bothered my husband for over 6 months. Great job!
