Dr Kennedy was awesome and due to my extreme anxiety issues...she was soooo patience and sat there to listen to the ear problem / dizziness I was experiencing. She took the time and explain everything clearly back to me on theissues and prescribed me a medicine I never knew existed and was happy with it. I am very happy with my visit and definitely recommend her to others.

This could not have gone better. Dr. Kennedy is attentive, personable, and on her ENT game! She was able to diagnose my issue and handle it right then and there and all the while making me feel at ease. The Zocdocapp made booking an appointment a cinch and I was called right away for confirmation. So glad I found Dr. Kennedy. Thanks Zocdoc!

I arrived 30 minutes early, waited only a few minutes until I was taken to an exam room. Dr. Kennedy was very friendly and professional, carefully listening to me explain my medical issue. She articulated the probable causes in a clearand understandable manner and provided me a course of treatments. When the office visit concluded, it was 2:55pm...my appointment was scheduled for 2:45 pm. Nice!

Over the years, I've always tried to get an appointment with Dr. Kennedy when I have ear issues (and likely would if I ever had nose and/or throat issues). Always friendly and clears up what ails me, completely. I highly recommend Dr. Kennedy!

I have to have ear wax removal every few months. I have always requested Dr. Gregory Bussell. He was not available so this was my first visit with Rebecca Kennedy. She was great! I can hear clearly again :) Quick and painless.

I had a consultation for a broken nose and and a deviated septum. I was unable to breathe through both nostrils. I scheduled a appointment 3 days after the initial trauma. I met with the Dr, and was referred to anotherdoctor 2 days later within her group. She also said my nose would not be straight after a closed nasal reduction. So now we are at T+5 days after trauma. I met the other Dr. and was told I would have to wait 6 months??????????? Immediately I went for 2 other opinions, of which they said this needed to be done within 2 weeks. I had my closed nasal reduction and septoplasty done, with another ENT with over 20 years of experience. Now, my nose is straight, and I can breathe perfectly. Thanks for nothing except a bill for telling me something I can research online. Also. the surgeon within her office, wanted to do a rhinoplasty, after my nose healed, and said that they have ways of going through insurance to pay for it. It appeared this group cared more about making money, than actually helping someone breathe again.
