Patient Comments (3)
in Bensalem,PA |
My experiences with Dr Kennedy have been nothing but positive from my initial cancer diagnosis, through surgery and to ongoing years of follow up. I have always felt confident in my treatment. She is thorough and responsive to all of my medical care. I have recommended her often to other potential patients.
Southampton, PA |
She is curt and blunt. This behavior extends to family members as well as towards the patient. She appears to be lacking in sympathy. Maybe working in this field so long has hardened her to the fear and hardships that her patients and their loved ones face.
She is smart, compassionate, kind and caring. An excellent oncologist, she remains on the cutting edge of new research and treatments. She is thorough, and always goes the extra mile for her patients. She has made all the difference in the world in my ongoing treatment and recovery. She is easy to talk to and answers all questions. I have worked in this field my entire career (35+ years) and Dr. Kennedy would always be my first choice.
