Ratings for Dr. Barry E. Kenneally
When he walked in Dr Kenneally was extremely short. Didn’t ask many questions or discuss options. And when trying to discuss pain in knee his comment back was “what do you want me to do”. Proceeded to give cortisone shot. Which will hopefully help. But NEVER suggested icing or heat or ibuprofen. Was anxious to get right out of room. I am in my upper 70’s and never have experienced a doctor this inconsiderate. Will not be returning to see him. Going to different location. Staff was great.

I have no idea how Dr. Keneally has gotten so many negative reviews! I've been seeing him at Rothman at the Nove Care, and he has been nothing but caring. He does have a quiet demeanor, but does not have a negative bedside manner. He's just a quiet Dr., but a doctor that will listen to you and answer any questions you have! I've had 4 gel injections from him, and am finally feeling back to my old self again. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Keneally!! Please don't pay attention to the negative reviews...he doesn't deserve any of them!
I have seen Dr. Kenneally for the last 4 years. He is very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. He has answered every question I ask and help me find an ankle specialist. I have recommend him to others people and have not heard of any problems in fact they all liked him .Gracie is very nice also
I saw Dr. Kenneally for l knee pain. He did 4 "gel' injections over 4 weeks. By the 2nd injection I was in terrible pain,told him his reply,"you have arthritis,arthritis hurts." He has the bedside manner of a potato. I finished all the shots in awful pain. I will never go back there again. I went bacause it was a Rothman clinic. On 3rd visit, I was crying, he said I was the only one who cried in his office.

I am absolutely DISGUSTED with DR. Keneally's bedside manner. I saw him 2-3 years ago for the first time for knee pain and he recommended physical therapy. I tried it and didn't seem to work. Over time the pain went away on its own until recently. I made an appointment for May 5, got X-rays done in house and when he went over them, he never explained what was wrong. Spent the entire 5 minutes he was in the room silently reading a report. He finally said he wanted an MRI for further detail and didn't even come back in the room when he went to get the prescription for it, his nurse gave it to me. Did a follow up appointment just today, June 3rd, and needless to say I won't be back. MRI showed a small radial tear in the left leg. When we looked for answers to why I'm having pain in the front of the knees, he gave my mother a look like she's the one who's supposed to know what's wrong with me! Again he recommended physical therapy. When she mentioned about the medication he gave for the pain not working, all he said was "The therapy will take care of it" Already have a 2nd opinion scheduled for June 21st at a different hospital. No compassion for his patients whatsoever! Don't walk away from him, RUN!

I am surprised to see such negative comments. I saw Dr Kenneally for pain in my right arm due to my osteochondromas. He was very thorough, gave sound advice and answered all of my questions. He has a quiet demeanor but did not come across as arrogant or rude. I would recommend him.
Dr. Kenneally diagnosed my extreme hip pain as arthritis from xray and said severe thigh muscle pain was caused by the moderate arthritis, Still unable to walk without severe pain revisited Kenneally two weeks later. He reiterated same diagnosis offered no more help and casually suggested that I would need a hip replacement if this "bump" continued. One third visit requested a cortisone shot he again suggested a hip replacement if not relief. It was my internist who later suggested physical therapy which provided vast relief along with thigh strengthening exercises on the web. A second opinion from another orthopedist said that I actually had bursitis which was relieved by ice, physical therapy and exercising. Dr appeared to be uncaring and rushed to (mis)diagnoses without suggesting PT. Would not recommend him.
This was the worst experience of my life to be in pain and go see a dr that didn't even care He has the worst bedside manner ever ! He didn't show any compassion or caring about me as patient he was in such a rush to get me out the office he never even looked at me he asked me 2 questions pulled up my X-rays told me I have several slip disk from the fall & that I should take a steroid & go back to work in a few days
This doctor had the WORST BEDSIDE MANNER I have ever experienced. If it weren't for the office manager being so pleasant I would have left in tears. He is condescending, abrasive and dismissive. Three qualities that one should not use to describe medical care. Especially from a specialist.
When I asked whether a scan was needed, Dr. Kenneally appeared to feel that his judgement was being questioned, after which his demeanor changed to one of condescension at best to uncaring rudeness at worst. His medical care became an oxymoron -- since there was no further care, only an attitude of "well, if you are questioning my decisions, you can either take care of yourself or see someone else, but I'm no longer going to be your doctor." If you see Dr. Kenneally, good luck.
