Has been my doctor for many years. He has always been very thorough in his exam, and helpful with answering any eye related questions I have had. Will continue to see him for my annual exam.

Dr. Kennedy listens to me. He always talks to me in a professional manner, clearly explaining the issue/diagnosis in terms I can understand, takes the time to listen to my questions/comments. He respects my time and intelligence.
