Joseph Kennedy, MD is an emergency medicine physician at the University of Vermont Medical Center and assistant professor of emergency medicine at the Larner College of Medicine at the University of Vermont.
Dr. Kennedy treats a variety of conditions, including exposures to hazardous materials; interpretation of drug or toxin blood / urine test results; venomous insect / animal exposure; occupational exposures; environmental exposures; heavy metal exposure and chelation management; and any other medical emergency.
Dr. Kennedy believes that the needs of the patient come first, and that each and every patient has unique needs. To that end, he hopes to provide a very empathetic and open-minded patient care experience. Patients having a medical emergency, as well as patients that have had a dangerous exposure or poisoning, require special treatment, and he hopes to provide calm and reassurance in a moment of crisis.
Teamwork and the chance to interact with people from all walks of life keep Dr. Kennedy excited to come to work every day. He enjoys the breadth and acuity that a career in emergency medicine affords, but also relishes the opportunity to take more time and form a longitudinal relationship with patients as a toxicologist.
