The reviews I read about Dr. Kennedy were spot on. My father was a small town country doctor in North Carolina. I gauge all my doctor's against how my Dad treated his patients (and me... he delivered me, took out mytonsils, and appendix (this was in the 50's and 60's)). Dr. Kennedy was right up there with my Dad.

The doctor was responsive to issues I raised and thorough in the examination. The only issue was a very long wait between seeing the nurse and the doctor. Otherwise the visit met expectations.
