Great Doctor

I've had Dr Hennessey for over 20 years. He listens to what you say which I think is one of the most important skills that doctors today do not understand.

I went to see him in early June, for a Serious condition. Was told they would send for my records from mcv, and they would set another appt when they received them. I called every three weeks, no records! His nurse told me in Sept that she was reordering them that day. I call back in October, no records. I call MCV, they never received a request. I call the office they admit the records have never been ordered. I made an appt with another doctor.

You cannot pay me to go back to him. He and his office staff are very rude, and it seems like he didn’t know what he was doing. He tried to prescribe me a medication, however couldn’t answer any of the questions I had about it, such as the side effects. I was having a hard time with my condition especially when my symptoms started to flare and I didn’t get anywhere with him. My primary care doctor was a lot more helpful than he was; and he is supposed to be the “specialist.”

THE ABSOLUTE WORSE!!!!

I WOULD NOT GO BACK TO THIS DOCTOR, NOT EVEN IF YOU PAID ME TOO! His office staff is rude and disrespectful and he either has no clue as to what he is doing or he just doesn’t care. He prescribed me one medication for my condition but I refuse to take any medication my very own doctor can’t answer any questions about nor tell me the side effects. I was on disability because of the severity of my condition and after a year and a half of being on disability, I was advised to move back home because it was no longer safe to live by myself out of state. I transferred my care to his office and the more time went on the more obvious it came that he did not review any of my records and didn’t truly have my best interest at heart. For weeks he was leading me to believe one thing but submitting the opposite to my insurance company and before I knew it my disability was terminated because he thought it was a good idea to tell them I was cleared to go back to work and did not advise them of the true nature of my condition. He led my insurance company to doubt my medical condition, despite the fact that I had been diagnosed about 3 years prior to ever becoming his patient. His records (even though it was little to none and very vague) contradicted everything that was ever submitted to my insurance company; past AND present information. My last visit with him (which was extremely hard to get), I confronted him with the information and he agreed, I was in no condition to return to work but and said “I don’t do paper work so you need to go to social services.” Because of what he submitted, I was unable to get my benefits reinstated and ultimately, I got dropped from my insurance carrier and my condition has worsened.
