Looking to hear opinions on him. I've been to see him once and was quite unimpressed with him.

He has been my boyfriends doctor for a number of years and has advocated for him and been a great dr to him. He has on going back issues and neck issues related to a couple of accidents and Dr K is great. Bf had other dr's when he was out west, but always made sure to get in to Dr K when he was on the Island as he liked him much better. I am guessing he pulls no punches and tells it like it is, but I would hope any Dr would do that for a patient- sugar coating never helped anyone! ( On a side note- my mother babysat him as a young child when his father was a DR in Souris, and said he was quite the little brat!)

He was my doctor about 15 years ago and I loved him. He is very frank and open so if you can't handle the truth about confronting how you can help your own health, he may be off-putting for some Islanders.

He was very supportive of his patients and there were a few times I was sitting in his office when he would pick up the phone and say, "I don't know what's wrong with you but we'll find someone who does" and call a specialist as I sat there. He always hung up with an appointment for me.

I would still have him as a doctor but he moved off Island for a while and then I moved out of the area.

He's my family doctor. I find him to be a good doc. He's very direct, but personally I like that. I would recommend Dr. Kennedy.

No issues. Saw him twice. Good DR. Yes, he is direct and to the point. Just like any professional should be. The days of Marcus Welby MD are over. If your fat he'll tell you to lose weight and not worry about your (heavy?) feelings. There are therapists for that. You smoke? Stop it its stupid, it'll kill you etc etc. There are therapists for that.

These were not my problems but I could tell he was that type.

I like Dr Kennedy, highly recommend.

On another note,, finally time they close all those rural first aid stations disguised as hospitals. Geez, no other province can afford a hospital in every ones backyard who may have voted correctly.

Wasn't overly impressed. I'm a young athlete with a clean bill of health, and I very rarely go to the doctor. I could barely get a word in, he wanted to talk more about what I do, then tied that in to his brother and gave me his brothers life story. Then he just kept talking and stood up started opening the door, I had to stop him and tell him I had more things to address so he'd listen and stop trying to get me out the door. Very rushed and didn't seem to give a s#!t.

There is a difference between telling a patient that they need to lose weight and fat shaming. I know I need to lose weight, I don't need him to tell me that. What I need for him to do is listen to me and not attribute ALL of my health issues to my weight. I have other health issues that have nothing to do with my weight. I have fibro, I have severe lymphedema in both my legs which makes throws my balance off. So on top of the pain and fatigue from the fibro, I have the added pain from thrown off balance.
