Patient Comments (3)
in Raymond, WA |
I have no doubt as to Dr. Kennedy's expertise as a surgeon. But appeared to be entirely lacking in compassion. I had fractured my left radius in 2 places. Once he'd decided I didn't need surgery, he essentially dismissed me. He never explained the x-rays or what to expect. I was in much pain, but when I asked about this, his attitude was clearly "cowboy up"! I know the concerns about narcotic meds. It seems doctors prefer to under-treat pain, not willing to find a middle ground.

I was in an accident in India that required complete reconstruction of my elbow after a poor result from Indian reconstructive surgery. He worked with Dr. Christopher Allen. Unbelievable results!

Dr Kennedy fixed my fractured elbow and he is a great surgeon, very talented. I have full range of motion of my arm.
