Patient Comments (1)
in Seattle, WA |
I have been seeing Dr. Kern for several years. He has removed several pre-cancerous and cancerous tumors, including one melanoma. A number of these were on my face, and there is no noticeable scaring. He also is careful to explain all the treatment options and his views but leaves the final decision up to me. He seems tome to be a genuinely nice person and I have complete confidence in him. I never feel rushed in an appointment.
