Great M.D. and Surgeon

Dr. Kennedy saved my wife's life, for she was suffering from Ulcerative Colitis (UC) for 18 months, and had one infusion of blood after another; and was severely undernourished and suffering from malnutrition because her small intestine had stopped working, from all of the trauma that was occurring in her colon. He immediately had her hospitalized and had her fed intravenously, along with several additional pints of blood, and 5 days later he performed the surgery that saved her life, for if her colon had perforated it would have caused a massive infection, that could have been fatal. In sum, he knew and did what he needed to do, before her UC led to colon cancer, and my wife and I will always be indebted to this wonderful individual and Surgeon for saving her life.

This man ruined my life!!!!!

He not only did what he was claimed to do, but did 2 other procedures I was not aware of until after surgery. I have been fitting a 6 yr battle to undue what he did! Please any one consulting this person, get second opinion! I do not want any one to go thru what I have had to go thru.
