Best

Great service at a reasonable cost. I was sick the other day, and I went for a checkup. The secretary was nice, and the wait time was about 15 minutes. I only paid $40.00 and I go...

Worst

as fast as you can. This physician (using the word loosely) is rude and abusive.

Why don't you try being nice. 2/7/2012

I went in to the clinic today. I do not have insurance; I work part time to put myself through college but according to Hillsborough County I make too much to qualify for free healthcare at the ""free"" clinics so I came here. There was very little wait time and I was able to see the doctor almost immediately. So many reviews said the doctor was rude and abrasive. That is not exactly true and not quite false either. Dr. Ghasemi is a man of very few words. I was very nice to him and he was ?nice? to me. He is Iranian and you have to remember that not only is there a language barrier, there is a cultural one. Iranian men are not the warm and fluffy type. Many people might consider his abruptness rude but that does not make him a bad doctor. When he was giving me my prescriptions I explained my minimal budget and he gave me a prescription for antibiotics that were free at publix. He also gave me some samples of cough meds so I would not have to buy them, he also wrote out a prescription for the same meds and said ?you don?t want, don?t buy.? That was not him being rude, that is just his broken English. I could tell that most people were not very nice to Dr. Ghasemi because his English is quite imperfect. When I was checking out a woman came up to the counter twice within 5 minutes, each time she was rude and impatient and kept asking how much longer she would have to wait. The Doctor responded with ?you sit, you wait, 10 minutes.? She rolled her eyes and mumbled under her breath about him being rude when all I wanted to do was to tell her to shut up, sit down and quit being an impatient little (expletive). I come from an immigrant family and I watched my parents struggle with language and cultural barriers all their lives. My father was a psychologist back in Chile and the US would not acknowledge his education and licensing when he moved here so he had to begin his education all over again as I am sure is also the case with Dr. Ghasemi. My visit cost me $50, the same that I would have paid at Tampa Family Health Services to sit and wait for hours a musky dingy room full of sick people, somewhere in the middle of the ghetto. At least Dr. Ghasemi is a licensed doctor and not bumbling med student like most clinics have. So do I recommend this clinic? Absolutely, as long as you can be a polite and decent human being you will be well taken care of. more

Kennedy Doctors 11/30/2011

For those of you putting negative or positive reviews, it would help others if you put the NAME of the doctor so people can avoid him. This is a clinic that has more than one doctor. They have at least 3 or 4 and an ARNP. I've been going there for years and seeing Dr. Joyce Thomas. She is very sweet and nice. She is the exact opposite of the monster described above. If you go to the clinic then I recommend you get Dr. Thomas for a doctor. If you are a walk-in then you are stuck with whoever is available. I am leaving the clinic because with their new system, you have to wait several months for an appt instead of a few weeks. If I get hit with an illness that is causing me to miss work, booking an appt 3 months away isn't logical. more

Good doctor, reasonable 6/9/2011

Great service at a reasonable cost. I was sick the other day, and I went for a checkup. The secretary was nice, and the wait time was about 15 minutes. I only paid $40.00 and I got some free samples. I was better in no time, highly recommend. more

Terrible , avoid at all costs 5/19/2011

This doctor is incompetent, impolite, conceited and can neither understand nor speak clear English. Do not support this type of clinician. Case in point: I went in for a simple physical and he gives me the standard eye exam, only he has me standing 25-30 feet away from the chart then tells me that my vision is impaired, after not even being clear regarding which line I was reading or the distance from the chart which was definitely much greater than 20 feet. Of course I was criticized when I brought this up, even though I too am a clinician and have administered the same test in the past. Don't support this guy, go elsewhere. more

Thinking about using this clinic for a check up 6/24/2010

I have no insurance and I found this place on line along with Hills. health dept. and I was wondering which is better. If someone has and other suggestions I would love to hear of them. Pros: Location Cons: Have no idea what to expect more

Wow! I had to call the police! 4/16/2010

The most unprofessional clicic I have ever experienced. Pros: They are crooks! more

KENNEDY WALK IN CLINIC IS GREAT. 12/8/2009

I WENT TODAY AND IN THE PAST, THEIR NICE, HELPFULL PEOPLE WHO ARE YOU THE COMMUNITY A FAVOR BY ONLY MAKING YOU PAY $40 AT THE DOOR. WHERE ELSE DOES THAT YOU A-HOLES? SERIOUSLY, I THINK ALL YOU PEOPLE COMPLAINING WERE PROBABLY RUDE AND ASKING HIM TO DO SOMETHING FOR YOU THAT HE COULD NOT. YOU PROBABLY WEREN'T EVEN SICK. I HAD NO INSURANCE AND HE MADE SURE ALL MY PRESCRIPTIONS WOULD BE UNDER $7 AND WROTE ME A NOTE FOR WORK/SCHOOL. GET A GRIP. ALI AND HIS RECEPTIONIST DESERVE MORE RESPECT. Pros: QUICK AND HELPFULL more

Very Thorough and Inexpensive Treatment 9/3/2009

I was out of town and had a bad respiratory infection. I didn't want to spend much money , but still get treated. After calling one walk-in clinic , which would have amounted to $300, I decided on Kennedy Walk-In. I walked in , filled out some paperwork and paid $40. Dr. Ali Ghasemi examined me and offered three treatment options 1) antibiotic shot . 2) Name brand prescriptions or 3) generic. I was able to hold my complete visit cost to $40 by opting for the ""3)"". One prescription was free at Publix , one cost $5 and there were coupons for others. Back home now my infection is almost. gone. I wonder if the people who gave him a bad review are upset because he was not able to give them the prescriptions they wanted but legally unable to give them?? If you know what I mean? Pros: Low Price, Some meds were free at Publix more

I have come to him for over 9 years! 8/17/2009

Dr. Ali is serving his community well by keeping his fees quite reasonable and the clinic is very accommodating in urgent situations. More doctors should have this level of compassion and his wife treats you like family. I've seen him for more than 9 years and he is an excellent doctor - also a humanitarian! Where he comes from, it's about the patient; not just about money, money, money! Pros: Serves the community and does not rip you off! more

Best place ever 3/7/2009

Leave the shadiness at the door. Ali is the man. Quick service, gets you better, helps you with cheap meds. more

Dirty office, Unprofessional Staff and horrible Dr (if he is a Dr) 6/7/2008

DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE. I should have left when I saw the dirty office and shady parking lot but the DR and staff are much worse. I left the office in shock at the doctor's behavior and unprofessionalism. I should have listened to my gut and left as soon as I saw the condition of the building but it was the only office open at the time. I would rather go to the emergency room and wait for hours than return to this place. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place at all costs. I would not be surprised to learn that this doctor does not have a valid license. Cons: Dirty, unprofessional staff, shady doctor more

Horrible and unprofessional 11/24/2007

I just called this clinic to find out if they were open today being the day after Thanksgiving and all. more

DISCRIMINATES AGAINST LATIN AMERICANS 8/30/2007

I recently had an ill employee who is legal, but speaks little english. I simply asked the receptionist who answered phone if anyone spoke spanish there. Her response was ""THIS IS AMERICA AND WE SPEAK ENGLISH HERE""! Pros: location Cons: no compassion/rude more
