All of my previous PCPs in Denver wanted me to do all of the footwork to have my records faxed to them. Whitney just had me fill out the provider's info and they are handling it. Completely relieved as well as blown away by the outstanding level of service!

I like that she really read up on the 12 pages of new patient paperwork & came in with questions on my family history details & my past health. Sometimes it seems doctors just file it away and never read it.Also, she was positive & explained everything simply & detailed.

Really liked Dr. Kennedy, however the receptionist at the front desk is not that friendly. I also spoke to her on the phone prior to coming in and she was also short and gave incorrect info.

She is an excellent physician that is willing to take the time to genuinely listen to what you have to say and hear your requests. She does not have the typical god-complex of a doctor and her humility shows through hercommunication skills. I really appreciated the time I spent with her and I am grateful to have found her.

Today was my first visit with Dr. Kennedy, and the positive reviews I read are all TRUE! I was a little thrown off by the neighborhood, but the office was very warm and inviting. The office manager, PA and doctor wereall extremely friendly the entire time and it felt like a great place to be / trust / visit for the first time or 100th. Dr. Kennedy was personable, understood and took into account all aspects of my families history and realistically considered and gave real life options for the questions I had. I was so reassured leaving the office... I knew I had found my new doctor for myself and my family! Wonderful visit!
