    I was misdiagnosed by doctors in Illinois & NC. Dr. Myers thoroughly went through my case notes, examined me & ran lab tests. She reassured me & went over my treatment options with me. I am totally impressed with her, & the staff as well.

    First time using Atrium Health. I'm so glad that my Dr. recommended Dr. Kennelly. Each visit I was seen in a timely manner and everyone was so polite. Will recommend Atrium to family and friends.

  • Sometimes you have to wait for Dr. Kennelly but he is worth the wait. When he is with you, he is really with you. The entire office staff is very kind and made an effort to learn how to pronounce my Canadian French last name.

    Waited 3 months for an appointment. Dr. Stepp seems genuine. He couldn’t help with my specific issue but did research to offer options and other doctors. 4 stars because of the long wait for an appointment.

    I had just moved from New York in September of last year and was scheduled there to be referred for a pelvic pain specialist for what they thought was endometriosis. After reading Dr. Vilisagar’s reviews I called my gynecologist in New York and she immediately sent over my referral paperwork. They got back to me right away even though covid still wouldn’t let them schedule for a few months out at the time. Dr. Vilisagar answered every question I had had and immediately got me scheduled for an ultrasound to confirm what we had discussed and then followed up to schedule me for surgery to remove the endometriosis. She was very easy to talk to and listened to every concern I had. The day of surgery she walked me again through all of the risks and procedures I would undergo. She was very thorough and put words in a way I would understand without being condescending. After struggling with endometriosis for the last several years and going to countless doctors who couldn’t diagnose me, I honestly couldn’t have chosen a better doctor or practice to go to. Thank you so much Dr. Vilisagar and her team for not only relieving my pain but after years of struggling to start my family, helping me get on the right path to where I need to be. Words don’t even describe what you did for me ❤️❤️❤️

    Dr. Kennelly is the top Dr. for self-cath. I have been his patient since 2005. This office needs walkers behind each or their weight scales for the safety of their patients.
