Waited a while but Dr. Sokohl spent a lot of time with me. Very knowledgeable and helpful.

Review for Dr. Sokohl

Everyone seemed genuinely concerned especially Dr Kern as he gave us his assessment of my MRI results. He explained very well what options that I have. The lady at the front desk is a delightful way to start just a serious appointment! Thank you to all.

Review for Dr. Kern

I have been seeing Dr. Mitchell for a couple years. She is by far the best OBGYN I have ever had in my 30 years of going.

He has done two triple bypass surgeries on me twenty years apart. He is the kindest and sweetest doctor and VERY skilled. Love him so much!
