I was disappointed with our visit. Yes, everyone was friendly but it seemed as if they just wanted to take my money without service. I was visiting SC on vacation and my son had an ingrown toenail so we purposely looked for a podiatrist to fix it. Dr Kern just put a bandaid on, wrote a prescription for antibiotic just in case and told is to see a Podiatrist when we get home? Why couldn’t she fix it there? I even asked what the process was? A podiatrist will numb the toe, cut the nail and put a special chemical to prevent the nail from growing back. OK, so why not do it now? I just waisted 2 hours between the commute and pharmacy while on vacation to just put it off so I can pay another Dr. when I get home? It’s not like he already has a podiatrist, he’s 15.

My 10-year-old daughter had a terrible case of ingrown toenails that required an expert to fix. We found that expert in Dr. Kern. Not only did she do a superb job fixing the problem with an in-patient procedure, she talked clearly, calmly and directly to my daughter and communicated clearly with us both. I wouldn't hesitate to go to her in the future. She entirely worth driving across town. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Kern and her staff! Quality Care: Efficient and kind!
