Dr. Kershen was great! He did a thorough exam and is doing all he can to help figure out what is going on. He spent a lot of time listening and asking me questions. I would highly recommend him. I did not have to wait long in the waiting area. HIs office staff was great as well.

Dr Kershen is a great person and a wonderful Dr. At a point in my life he treated me for successfully for pseudo Parkinson's brought on by a RX drug I had been prescribed which made me develop all the symptoms of real Parkinson's for several years. I have since seen him for other things and he is a very caring person who listens and asks questions working patiently to understand, evaluate and treat me thoroughly. He shows the highest of character, expertise and empathy there is. Mary Deeds

Dr. Kershen was the 4th doctor we had taken my mother to with the diagnosis of dementia. On our first appt he diagnosed my mother with ALS. We are very thankful to have finally found a doctor who spent time with us and answered all of our questions and discovered the real issue going on. It wasn't what we had expected to hear and wasn't the greatest news, but at least we know what is going on and can enjoy the short time we have left to spend with our mother. We cannot thank you enough!

Dr. Kershen was helpful and knowledgeable when addressing my health concerns. He doesn't hold back when giving you his thoughts. He kept me actively involved throughout the exam. My only complaint is that when I was telling him how my symptoms started, he said "okay" a lot and made it seem like he wasn't completely listening.

I went to him for second opinion after having 2 strokes. He was given copies of all my medical records and test prior to my appointment. First appointment he re-peated several blood test and we return the next we when he did another test told me he did not see the need to ever see me again. No explanation. Return to primary doctor which the he told me that dr Kershaw wrote a letter to say he did not think I ever had a stroke. I have MRIs to prove them. He does not care about patients.
