We made an appointment over 2 months in advance. When we arrived (a little early) the waiting room was so full we couldn’t find a chair. We were told the doc was running over an hour late. We cancelled our appointments. Its very rude to not respect his patients’ time.

I waited over an hour past my scheduled appointment time. UNACCEPTABLE! Never got to see the Doctor! Don't know if the Doctor is incompetent or if his office / scheduling staff needs to be fired! There is lots of scheduling software available! At the least, if a Doctor is more than 15 minutes...more

I vist the office often. Always a long wait. The staff is not very friendly but the Dr. Is always friendly and very good, he helped me with skin issues and hair loss. I had lip injections fillers for the first time and I expected a lot more out of it. All I got was large bulges in the inner lip...more

Dr Kerner diagnosed and surgically removed a melanoma from my lower jaw. The medical service throughout the procedure and follow up was excellent.
