About the Provider

Kathleen A. Kennedy, MD joined FCPP in November 2019. She is board certified in Hematology and Medical Oncology. She manages patients with all tumor types as well benign and malignant hematologic conditions.

Her interest in developmental biology lead her to obtain a masters degree in developmental genetics. After graduation, she was involved in research at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation before entering medical school.

These interests and skills translate directly to medical oncology and allow her to teach patients about their disease and the drugs used. This knowledge is empowering, and helps to remove some of the fear associated with a cancer diagnosis. She wants to find out what is important to her patients, and see things from their point of view to figure out what they really need from a medical as well as social standpoint.

Excellent experience. Girl at front desk very polite and friendly, as was the nurse who took my vitals. Short wait for Dr. to come in.
Feb 5, 2020
I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Kennedy. She is everything you could ask for and more. I was her patient for ten years at Mission Hope. She originally diagnosed my cancer in 2009. She was kind, caring, compassionate and professional. She helped me through a very scary time in my life. I was devastated when she left her employment there, and dreaded having to see someone new. When I learned she was practicing in SLO I was extremely happy and relieved. I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Kennedy.

Dr Kennedy was my Oncologist for 10 years at a previous office treating me for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) and a breast cancer lumphectomy. A blood test from my general practitioner showed my was reoccuring. Upon making an appointment with Dr Kennedy the old office informed me she was no longed working there. I was devasted to not to have Dr kennedy work my CLL treatment after all the years we worked on treatment together. Dr Kennedy is the best Oncologist to work with.
