Ratings for Dr. Ross Kennedy
Should he retire? There's no doubt that Dr. Kennedy is nice, helpful and knowledgeable. And poo-poo on patients who whine about having to wait too long. As for Doctor Kennedy's ability as a Surgeon... I believe it's time for him to consider retiring. Why you ask? I had minor surgery to correct a slight Strabismus, and he mis-aligned the muscles in my eye. Weeks later, Dr. Kennedy gave me a "BOTOX" injection into the inner muscle, and misjudged the dosage. Inadvertently paralyzing the muscle. I can no longer see out of my left eye! And vision is limited in my right eye.
Would not recommend him. I was a patient of his when I was really little. I had my first surgery at 11 months old and then again at 3. My eyes were never really fixed properly, they were just cosmetically fixed, and I ended up with a hole in my throat from the breathing tube, which affected my voice. I am now 27 and have an appointment with a new specialist to see if my eyes can be corrected for good.
My son was born almost 11 years ago, blind. We didn't know it until he was 6 months old. His condition was operable, and we took him to see Dr. Ross Kennedy, a children's eye surgeon. My wife and I had one of the hardest of moments when at 9 months old, we had to let him go into surgery alone. Today, almost 10 years to the day of the surgery, he had an eye test where he showed near perfect vision with a 20/25 result with glasses. Two years ago he was 20/40 corrected. Four years ago he was 20/80. I can't thank Dr. Kennedy enough. We owe him our son's vision. One day, with some laser surgery it is very likely he will have 20/20 vision without glasses. How do you thank someone for this? My hat's off to the Doc.
I would highly recommend Dr Kennedy. One only needs to look at his numerous degrees and achievements to see this surgeon is the real deal! He has a wide breadth of knowledge which was demonstrated when he explained to my husband and I about my son vision and lazy eye issue. He was sensitive and understanding surrounding the unique issued my son with Down Syndrome faces. He takes the time to break down concepts and has outstanding bed side manner! very impressed with dr kennedy
I do not recommend Dr Kennedy Ross My son was complying about his glasses so we went to see the specialist - dr Kennedy Ross. Dr Kennedy Ross did not see any problem and said the prescription glasses are fine. After 6 months we went again to the same doctor because my son could not copy from the blackboard, blinked excessively had itchy eyes, headaches and had many problems with learning at school. This time my son couldn’t recognize the biggest letters on the wall during Snellen chart test. I was shocked, the ‘specialist’ did not look comfortable but did not bother to explain his mistake from our last visit(the leap was from 1.5- old glasses to 3.5-new glasses) He gave us the lesson about children’s anatomy so according to dr Kennedy Ross kids legs and hands grow fast so we buying the new boots quite often- but kids eyes grow slowly so there is no need to replace the prescription glasses .
My experience was excellent; on first arrival I was a little worried, the receptionist Maureen? Ignored my son and I appearing to be “making” herself look busy. Then another young receptionist (Lisa?) came out and greeted us personally. She assured I had everything needed to assure my medical plan covered the visit while taking the time to calm my son. Absolutely amazing personalized service. If it were not for her, I would have realized we waited a while for Dr. Kennedy but when we did see him, every question was attentively listened to and thoroughly explained to me. Despite first impressions of Maureen, and between the young angel Lisa with the expertise of Dr. Kennedy, this was probably my son’s best Doctor visit ever. Very impressed and recommend this office to anyone with sight troubled children.
