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.

Appreciate Dr Kennedy he made me feel comfortable with my diagnosis and a treatment plan. I was very worried about my health upon my arrival. He modified how I am to take my medication as well as doing a scope at my clinic visit and was able to put me at comfort. I appreciate the information he provided which has enabled me to better understand my medical conditions. Thank You to Dr Kennedy I really appreciate what he has done for me.

doctor's care was short, and wanted me to get cat or MRI which i declined. mainly because it involved some type of surgery.
Nov 9, 2016
I have recommended Dr. Kennedy to other patients which he has this day. Dr. Kennedy has been very good to me. I look at his busy schedule and when I had surgery back in 2013 and was in the hospital over Christmas on that day he came to see how I was doing, that meant a lot to me personally.
Nov 1, 2016
Good.
Oct 26, 2016
Dr Kennedy was great, very professional & pleasant. However, Jeff, the physical therapist was obviously very good at his job, but had an egotistical manner which I personally felt disrespected & intimidated by. I seriously felt like he needed a smack in the "nose". lol

Dr Kennedy is my favorite and has been for many years. I have every confidence in him.

I am absolutely confident with dr,. kennedy...his professionalism and time to make sure I understood what was going on was amazing...although he knows I hate to be scoped...he takes his time...is patient...and apologizes though he knows I have a bad gag reflex...I feel he is a gifted and skilled surgeon and will always be grateful that he was my surgeon

First time seeing this doctor. He wasn't really friendly. Had an intern and a resident look at me before the doctor. None of them were all that friendly but the intern. All business. Gotta love it.
