I have had a very good experience using Dr. Kennedy as my cardiologist. I have had 4 cardio conversions, two worked, both done by Dr. Kennedy. I have two ablations. I felt totally confident and felt I was getting the best care possible. No complications experienced. Dr. Kennedy is a very friendly man. He spent a lot of time explaining the procedures to both me and my husband. He appraised my husband about how the surgery went immediately after completion. Could not ask for a better doctor.

Dr. Kennedy has my complete trust with regard to my heart issues. He has always spent a good amount of time with me and I have always walked away feeling totally confident that I am receiving the best care. I wish I felt that way about all my other doctors...

I needed an ablation following two previous cardioversions. Dr. Kennedy did the ablation. I found he was ver patient at all times prior to the procedure when I or close family had questions. He is a very friendly guy. The surgery was so well undertaken it was a non-event. I had no post- surgical pain without any medication. Now, two days post surgery it's difficult to tell the point of incision?. Needless to say, I'm very pleased with this Doctor.
