There should be some accountability on the lack of follow up from the San Mateo Cardiology office.

My care provider was great! Only one thing that could have been better - while he gave really great explanations for a lot of the possible causes of my pain he didn't explain what back spasms are as well as my father who is a doctor and back pain-sufferer did afterwards. I thought back spasms meant your back tightens and relaxes rapidly but I realize now that it can also feel like extended back tightness.

Dr. Kennedy is the BEST primary care doctor I've had at UCSF and ever. He is a good listener friendly down-to-earth patient and understanding. He has a lot of empathy he never rushes me he genuinely cares for his patients and is good at explaining difficult medical concepts into vernacular. He has helped me a good deal. UCSF will not be the same without him!

Dr. Kennedy is really very knowledgeable thorough experienced and an attentive listener. He unassumingly listened to all the concerns and then carefully explained the various possibilities the medications detailed the pros and cons for each of them and gave me very honest facts about each health concerns. He is a star!! Would totally recommend him to all my loved ones family and friends. He is very professional and also puts the patient at ease with his clean wit and sense of humour.

This is complicated because he lanced a cyst that had to be packed to drain. He persented the treatment options clearly and we made a rational decision together. The amount of packing has to be reduced every two days for two weeks. The covering bandage has to be taken off carefully to avoid pulling the packing out. Replacing it will be inconvenient and painful. He had a lot to tell me and it was clear.

I needed two referrals and got them both.

Strange to hear a doctor talk skeptically about the vaccine with comments like "I don't know why we're going through all this effort"

We only had five minutes due to the aforementioned delays so he did what he could in that time but it did not feel like the level of rigor my care should have received.

Great interaction with Dr. Kennedy. He understood my existing condition and how it could play a role in my symptoms. Felt comfortable discussing this with him even though we had just met.

I have had unusual symptoms that Dr. Kennedy orchestrated a team: Surgeon Pain Clinic and Psychiatrty. Dr. Kennedy's work got me out of severe unremitting pain that I had for nearly three years! I've been to Stanford and Princeton University with no diagnosis or help that was effective and now I'm about 90% pain free with a residual problem that is unexplainable. As an RN I'm aware my disease presentation and psychic reaction was a challenge to all the physicians who saw me and Dr. Kennedy was the one who just blew it away! He sent me to the right providers and at UCSF they were each exceptional as a contribution to an almost full recovery! Being in severe pain changes how you think and my entire life was in a seizure! I feel lucky to have shown up at UCSF with whom I used to have a robust successful professional relationship and to have my own needs met so quickly. My recovery went from a near three year chaos to healing in about 5 months! Ever grateful to you all and Thanks much more to Dr. Kennedy for taking me seriously!

Always friendly great sense of humor and personable physician. Dr. Kennedy is very caring about me and I appreciate how his care stopped three years of severe pain in my hand. It shut off severe fire and ice in my dominant hand I can't thank you enough! I've been almost entirely figured out and I'm so grateful to UCSF and Dr. Kennedy

Dr. Kennedy is the type of doctor that puts care in healthcare. He listens and takes the time to discuss issues related to my health and overall well-being. Thank you!

It was my first meeting but it was a very positive one.

At certain times of the appt. part's of the conversation were choppy cuts off long pausesetc. it could have been on my end and the device I was using was causing it. So the care provider decided to call on the telephone just so that there wasn't any more interruption's with the appt. And I agreed to the telephone call. And was able to conclude the appt. with sound advice and future question(s).
