Dr. Hennessy was very detailed and took his time to explain the injury also possible treatments and additional tests.

Doctor did examine me and pointed out the possibilities for treatment. But I felt I was talked down to. No compassion or attempt to understand the pain I was in. I got more treatment from doctor's assistant than from the doctor.

After informing the PA that I had contacted my health insurance the previous day and was given approval of the procedure, he still informed me that the staff would have to get the approval and that they would contact me. That was a few weeks ago and they have yet to contact me.

If there was an excellent category I would have chosen it. The PA Jeff is amazing!

Although the doctor explained everything well, he was extremely rushed. He began explaining things before he even got in the door. After the long wait, that was disappointing.
