Dr Kershner has been my Primary Care Physician for 14 years. He is very professional, very caring, honest about your health problems, and treat his patients with the utmost respect. DR. Kershner LISTENS TO HIS PATIENTS, never rushing or cutting you off. I am 66 years old and I have NEVER had a doctor that I have trusted as Dr Kershner. I know that I am in excellent hands with him.

I almost never write reviews. Dr. Kershner was the family physician for a few years for my parents and I felt I had to say thank you for his candidness, professional care and kindness. Staff in the office were always pleasant and patient. Just wanted to let others know that our experiences with the doctor and his staff were well above expectations. Dwight G.

Dr. Kershner is great. However, his office staff lacks basic customer service skills. They are not friendly and are very unhelpful. I can't stand calling there to make an appointment and don't bother trying to get a same day sick appt. What doctors office doesn't have time slots for ppl that need a same day appointment if they are sick?
