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 40 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 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.
