Excellent care and Dr Kennedy is amazing! She took the time to understand what is going on with my son. Because of her knowledge and understanding of his different diagnoses and prescription medications, she was able to adjust his meds to the right levels which has made a huge difference. Her therapy dog, Clover, is pretty great too!
