Ratings for Dr. Richard J. Kennedy
I wanted to reschedule my appointment but the office had no idea who i was and never heard of me. A week later the office called for a reminder of my upcoming appointment. The receptionist is very rude , ignorant and completely incompetent. So i am going back to my Dr to get another referral to a differant place. Don't go to this office. Also by looking over the other reviews it seems i am not the only person she has been rude too and he clearly doesn't know what he is doing. Glad I didnt waste my time
I liked him. Ok, so he's old. And he's not all smiles and rainbows and unicorns, but I am not there for frou-frou "lets be friends", I am there for medical reasons. I only waited about 10 mins. He was courteous, and to the point. All business. He asked good questions, took lots of notes, and totally listened. When I had questions for him he had answers. This guys is just an old-school doctor. I even managed to get a smile out of him a few times! And the receptionist was ok. The people testing were really nice. I am totally going back!!
I don’t presume to know all his credentials or how skillful and knowledgeable he truly is, I can only give an account of my impression based on the experience I had and my perceptions of him. Well, I was warned that he had a terrible bedside manner so I decided to just keep an open mind. I tried but in all seriousness we barely exchanged two sentences. How is he supposed to help me? I felt cheated of my time and money. My efforts were wasted on him. He struck me as the kind of person who should be enjoying his retirement by now but for whatever reason just won’t quit. He is not an immunologist by the way but a pulmonologist. I checked the CPSA registry. Be warned.
Finding a new allergy doctor for our son... Waited for well over an hour after appt. time. Son was tested and we were told that he has numerous allergies but no real explanation. When we asked questions we were responded to rudely and made to feel stupid. Condescending and abrupt. Won't go back.
Please, please, please do your research before seeing this doctor!! He is not a certified allergist/ immunologist! He is a GP with additional study in respirology. He sent my family on the most painful goose chase for the past 2 years. He "diagnosed" my young daughter with food allergies all over the charts, specially animal protein and peanuts. My family adjusted our diet to vegan which was a huge change and stress for us. We had to inform the school, if she was invited to a birthday party I'd have to bring her food and bake separate vegan cupcakes. So much work...: and there was NO improvement!!! I was terrified so I went back to my GP desperation and was re-refered. I met with an actual allergist and it turns out she has NO food allergies but rather and immune problems. Dr Kennedy is in need of retirement and as far as I am concerned incompetent. To top it off he is not friendly or kind, please don't go through what my family went through!!! He legit needs a zero on in all categories!!!
I took my daughter to see Dr. Kennedy and, upon entering the waiting room, was confronted with a sign that read "Alberta Health will no longer pay for a second consultation if it is done in less than 366 days since the first consultation. The NOTLEY GOVERNMENT wants to cut money designated for patients by restricting Health Care services. They they will pour this money down the drain for their "fairy" ideological projects." This type of political commentary has no place in the waiting room of a specialist. Further, when conducting the intake questionnaire, Dr. Kennedy asked me if my daughter stays home with me (she does not). I am a professional and was dressed in business clothes while my husband (who was with us) was in a track suit. Dr. Kennedy was late, rude, and ultimately failed to provide the very information we came in for regarding my daughter's allergies. Moreover, his reliance on 1950s gender norms was not appreciated.
