Dr. Kennedy and nurse practitioners Laura Sigler and Laura Hall see women yearly for prevention, and we promote heathy lifestyle factors to stay healthy and free from medical problems and disease. We can perform and encourage regular screening for disease and cancers. At the well woman exam, we can identify issues and problems that can be improved or fixed.

Dr. Kennedy specializes in gynecologic diseases and problems, and offers many solutions from the conservative side to more encompassing treatments, and works with the individual based on her specific medical nuances and individual preferences. She can help manage hormonal issues and balance, pelvic prolapse, pelvic pain, vulvar skin disorders such as lichen sclerosus, heavy menstrual bleeding, irregular cycles, postmenopausal bleeding, polycystic ovary, pelvic infections, vaginal dryness, pain with intercourse, pelvic pain, urinary urgency and leaking, interstitial cystitis, and more. There is not one remedy for all women for an issue; individualized targeting of treatment is the basis for management by Dr. Kennedy.



The field of gynecology lends itself to sustaining health and well-being, looking better, and feeling better. Many methods already a part of gynecology can help optimize a woman in many ways. Hormone replacement helps us feel better with treating hormonal symptoms but also improving energy, mental focus, libido, reduces pain with intercourse, protecting several of the body’s organ systems, and much more. Pelvic surgery can not only help prolapse and laxity but can improve intimacy and give a cosmetic genital appearance. Labiaplasty is becoming popular in a cosmetic and personal manner. Vaginal dryness and pain can be treated with many non-hormonal topical and laser treatments.

Sexual function of women is unique to the person, but problems are encountered frequently. Dr. Kennedy is well versed in barriers to sexual health and can recommend remedies or enhancement. Ask for remedies for men’s sexual health also.

Everyone wants to look their best, and aesthetic remedies and procedures of the face, skin, and body contour are in high demand. Dr. Kennedy can help significantly improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, pigment and sun spots, scars, saggy skin, and more in the face and whole body. We start with treating what needs to be fixed, and then sustaining that effect with regular maintenance. Even younger women interested in maintaining their skin texture and tone can begin to support the physical appearance of longevity.

Dr. Kennedy can do a full exclusive non-invasive mommy makeover and recommend an individualized plan of body enhancements. Childbirth can take a toll on the body, and we can obtain results in most areas and many women with non-invasive measures. Some minor surgeries may also be a part of the makeover. We can target the breasts, body and abdominal shape, scars, genital appearance, pelvic support, pelvic function, and face, to suit what each person desires.
