Dr. Kennedy is forgetful and non-responsive. At my appointment, I had to remind him twice to call in all 4 of my prescriptions. He then only called in 3 prescriptions. When one of those medicines required prior approval, I had to call his office 3 times to get ahold of someone. They assured me that he would take care of it that day. A week later, he still hadn't gotten around to calling in his approval to the pharmacy. I was surprised that as a professional he would still be so incompetent.

Dr. Kennedy is by far the best doctor I have ever encountered. When I first met him, I was sick. I was so sick I couldn't work. No one had any clue what was wrong with me and everyone (including me) was ready to give up. He has yet to give up on me. He's helped me discover I have two very rare genetic conditions, helped me manage them, and I'm even back at work now. I hesitate to post this because I don't want anyone else to have him, but he's saved my life and maybe he can do that for you too.
