There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

The doctor spent only 5 min. or less with me.

Dr. Kennedy was rude, and definitely did not want to be dealing with my case. He spent 15 minutes with me and did not even perform a physical exam. He focused on only labs he ran and not all my previous history which was needed and refused to do further tests to prove a diagnosis when I asked. His attitude was terrible. He had no compassion. And he refused listen to me about my symptoms. I'm an intelligent individual and think I know my body better than any one else. Clearly that means nothing to your doctors at Geisinger.

Unable to recommend Geisinger to anyone at this point due to lapses in care to myself and family.

Very pleased with care provider particularly since he was not my current doctor.

On my behalf, I stopped taking my medication prescribed by my care provider, so this may have set the tone of our conversation. Overall, I feel that this appointment went well, aside from the long wait and short time with the Doctor. The length of the visit was good with my kids, but the wait before the visit was too long for them.

Not friendly - all business. Was very knowledgeable.
March 30
He told me my problems are not due to thyroid felt more anemia. Family dr. tested for anemia and I am not. I continue to have problems with no answers.
March 18
It was a very unpleasant office visit. The doctors demeanor was uncalled for.

Dr. Kennedy was very professional while showing empathy concerning my health concern. He referred to my responses on the health questionnaire and asked thoughtful questions throughout my visit.
Jan 15
Dr. Kennedy is by far the best dr. in his field. He helped me address issues I was concerned about, and helped me get other appointments for my concerns.

I did send a message to my doctor through mygeisinger.org on Teusday 1/18, as of right now, 4:50pm on 1/20, I have not heard back from him.

The first time I had seen Dr. Kennedy he explained everything he was going to test for me and where we would go from there. This past time I saw him he said I would come back next year for an MRI and more tests and said he didn't know why I urinate all the time so he is sending me to a kidney specialist. He is sending me to a kidney specialist but I feel like he was just dismissing my issues and concerns. I had more blood work 12/24 and I contacted him about the results and he has not gotten back to me.

My only concern with this doctor is the lack of communication when he sends for a test or a medication.

This appointment could have been thru the mail. I traveled to Geisinger Medical Center for a 3 minute contact with Dr. Kennedy. His check of my thyroid was so quick. Didn't tell me what he was checking for, exactly. Mentioned a nodule on the thyroid, but there was no to very little difference from the tests a year ago. I was not impressed. I don't have to return for a year. I think he could check the MRI and Ultra Sound and tell me via a letter.

I continue to be most impressed with the professionalism, concern and courtesy of Dr. Kennedy. He is an excellent doctor.
