Ratings for Dr. Jolene Kennett
Dr. Kennett got right to the point, found a solution to my "hot flashes" within a week they were almost gone, her hormone expertise is "PRICELESS" she was super informative, advised of different ways to manage hormones, i.e. diet / exercise, weight loss, over all good health. I wasn't sure what to expect, this was my first time at a Naturopath and I found the office very welcoming the office staff to be very efficient, looking forward to my next appointment for more health education.
When my peri-menopause symptoms kicked in in my late 40's I had a dreaded that I was going to go through what all the older women in my family suffered through. After years of symptoms which have negatively affected my quality of life, I was fortunate to meet Dr Kennett. Over the past three years she had helped me understand the 'why's' of what I was experiencing. Dr Kennett uncovered an autoimmune thyroid disease and through her persistence in recommending that my GP order an ultrasound, we discovered that I had uterine fibroids. Dr.Kennett is a great educator and approaches health from all angles - which is a unique quality for a doctor. She also discussed the pros and cons of various treatment options which enabled me to make my own informed decision. I no longer suffer from hot flashes, insomnia, heart palpitations or fatigue, and my libido has returned after 7 years! I must say that occasionally Dr Kennett is late in starting her appointments, but I have come to understand that this is because she gives her patients 100% of her attention and ensures that all issues are addressed before a patient leaves her office. Thank-you Dr Kennett - your hormone expertise and your compassion in understanding women's health issues is exactly what I was looking for!
On the one hand, Dr Kennett is far more knowledgeable and open minded than many of the previous health practitioners I've been to (naturopaths included and I like her bedside manner very much. On the other, she often seems unprepared for our appointments and I usually end up doing much of my own research both prior to and after our meetings. I also find she often gives contradictory advice and has cost me a lot of money in useless supplements and antibiotics. Despite a host of useless advice and money spent on tests and supplements, she has helped me gain some clarity . As the last reviewer said, I hope I'm doing the right thing in seeing her.
Dr Kennett seems to be nice and friendly. Like a handful of medical professionals, it is often difficult to get a direct response to the whats, whys and hows. I wish that she would answer the question at the onset or at least say I don't know, I will find out and let you know. I do not like asking the same thing more than one time. I hope that she becomes more pro-active in your healthcare instead of only addressing the initial or current issues. I hope that I am doing the right thing seeing her and taking her supplements. Seeing that this is an out of pocket cost, I am trying to be patient and positive.
I have been seeing Dr. Kennett for years. I saw her before, during and after my pregnancy and now my (very healthy) daughter sees her too. I have a pituitary tumor which causes all sorts of issues but she is very knowledgeable. I often see her first before going to my MD regardless of the problem. She is easy to talk to and very caring. She doesn't judge my choices or push anything on me. She listens and offers advice and solutions. I am grateful to have found her.
Dr Kennet is amazing! I have Ulcerative colitis,and she is helping me so much.She is very smart,listen carefully about your problems and knows the solution for everything! I feel much better and really happy I am not taking toxic medication for my condition. Just natural supplements a correct diet. She is the best doctor in Vancouver!!! Thanks Dr Kennet.
I was diagnosed with Colitis two years ago and have been struggling with my flare up since. My Specialist treated my symptoms every time but offered no management or nutritional advise. I felt as though I had no control over this disease and my optimism was diminishing. My first visit with Dr. Kennett was such a positive experience. She helped me develop a nutritional plan with supplements that would compliment the medication I was taking. Her goals for my recovery and sustained remission were greater than my own! I feel optimistic again, and I am on the road to remission! :)
I have been on the search through different doctors and multiple test for 3yrs with no solution to my symptoms. After tons of research I finally came to the conclusion I had PMDD which was greatly effecting my life! I can't describe the misery it was bring me! I was recommended to Dr. Kennett and after one month of treatment, I feel hopeful for my future! See spent the time to find out details that I knew mattered but other doctors brushed off. She explains everything in detail and makes you feel extremely comfortable discussing embarrassing issues! I am so grateful for the day I decided to see her as it has changed my life as well as the people's dearest to me as hormone issues are no laughing matter lol. There are days I couldn't get out of bed, missed work and felt hopeless! I finally feel like my motivated self again. I will see her for all my future issues! It's rare to come across people that truly care. I would 100% recommend Jolene! Xo
