He really listened to me , sure he was and is the docter and understood more about the diagnosis then i. We all as patients try to be the docter and try to over rule the docter but we should be glad to have a wonderful docter who takes the time even when it seems they do not, but in my case he did take the time to do my nerve conduction test and explain all the finds and all the important information. He also had detail of more about my diagnosis which I was thankful for.

Negative Comments

what my diagnosis was not what I really wanted to hear... but this was in no way his fault . But My Neg. Comment would be I needed more done and Insurance would not allow but so much in office work done but so much per visit . So now I am Having to remake appt. and Not sure if I am going to have to get referred... this is aggrivating but not his Fault but the policys is aggrivating... to me ..

Rude and dismissive. Does not listen. Neurology exam was rushed through. I called twice to reschedule an appt. Giving 24 hour notice, and was treated like a misbehaving child by his assistant.

Dr. Kennedy is a caring, good doctor. His front deskreceptionist does not belong in an office like this. She isunfriendly, hateful and has a BAD attitude toward hispatients!

Appropriate Follow-up
"MD did not schedule follow up."

Dr Kennedy did not engage well. Seemed more interested in impressing student who was with him. Barely touched affected area. He did acknowledge diagnoses, but downplayed them. Symptoms have worsened following visit. He did not schedule a follow-up :(.

Actually listens to my problems about my headaches, then we try to come to some sort of of a trial and error solution, hopefully a new solution!

Dr. Kennedy, seems knowledgeable enough!However we were very annoyed by the fact that the appointment he had made for my wife, not having received the CD's of the MRI's, thus really had nothing to report. --- We wasted a day, driving 100 miles, for no good reason, for we had no other reason to go to Boone, NC. No doubt Dr. Kennedy charged our insurance plenty, for this totally wasted appointment!
