Dr. Kern and all of the other BP providers go above and beyond to care for their patients. My kids have been going there for fifteen years. Doesn't get much better.

Whatever you do do not go to Bridgewater pediatics!! They are extremely rude and literally push you in and out the door and charge your insurance for every single little thing (example:vein puncture and shot administration)sticking a needle in the arm and charging almost $70 for it!!And then getting a bill for it because your insurance doesn't cover it. If you dont want a really high balance every time you call for an I suggest dont go here.And the lady in billing, Jen is so incredibly rude!

Dr. Kern is a great doctor, and run's an amazing practice. He always takes the time to say hello to everyone in the room including high fives for the kids and shaking your hand. He is direct, and concise while assessing the situation at hand. I trust him and his staff completely and consider them a value to my family.
