How likely are you to recommend Dr. Kennedy?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Kennedy is an extraordinary person who cares as well as is extremely knowledgeable. What more can one say? She is able to zoom in on your situation and will never give up on you. She has experience in multiple realms of mental distress and helping those in distress and participating in academia, which, in this day and age, is quite unusual and makes her more able to recognize the nuances of distress and be a significant force in your life! She is a very special person and physician!
