I like Kernen as a source of information, but his staff are abrupt and uncommunicative. I felt like a chassis moving down the assembly line.

I've never had to wait longer than 15 mins. He's always upbeat and friendly. And he never rushes out the door without answering my questions. I just hope he doesn't move away!

Dr. Kernen is the best ! I went to him after a botched attempt by another Dr. to remove my bladder cancer left me maimed and did not remove the cancer completely. Dr. Kernen came highly recommended by a lifelong friend who had prostate cancer successfully removed by him. Dr. Kernen is what I picture an ideal Dr. as being , caring, compassionate and a damn good doctor !

Dr. Kernen was highly recommended. One person said he saved her father's life. I believe he has saved my husband's life since he diagnosed his stage IV prostate cancer in 2015. He expertly performed the biopsy in his office to determine the score & started with hormone therapy (worked great for 2.5 yrs). Then he felt Immunotherapy would help, then oral chemo, which is working well. His manner, efficiency, responsiveness & concern are stellar. Very experienced w. prostate cancer. The best!

Excellent MD. Have been under his care since 2006. Knows me as a person when he walks in the examining room. Is on top of my medical history and takes the time to find out if anything new is going on. His office staff in Troy, Mi is top notch.

Dr Kenneth Kernen is an exceptional doctor! He treats me for prostrate screening due to a family history of cancer. I always feel I am getting the highest quality of care during my visits and he is completely focused on my health. He also has a very pleasant disposition. I highly recommend Dr Kernen for those in need of a urologist.

I found Dr Kernen to be friendly and courteous..... and I believe him to be knowledgeable,... but seemed to be more interested in "landing" the surgical procedure than with my actual recovery. He did not reveal some significant side effects to the surgery (which based on my questions, he knew to be important to me) and did not schedule pre surgical exercises that others in their office said would have helped with my recovery/rehabilitation. Lastly, post surgical monitoring was very poor.

Dr. Kernen is always up on the latest treatments in the field, but at the same time, he takes the individual patient needs into consideration before doing any procedure, even one that though it sounds good, may make the condition worse and advises the patient of this. I appreciate this in a doctor.

Dr. Kernen listens carefully to chief complaints, maintains eye contact and is more than comfortable discussing alternatives of treatment. Additionally, he will provide you with supportive information as to why he chooses one modality over another.

I have been seeing Dr. Kernen since Feb. 2011 and he has performed seven surgeries on me and I found Dr. Kernen to be extremely kind, knowledgeable and a very caring physician/surgeon. I have handed out his business card to friends that are searching for an excellent physician and have talked with friends regarding my experience having Dr. Kernen as my physician. He has been very helpful in explaining my health situation and is always very encouraging during my difficult health problems.

After nine years with Dr. Kernan, we have never meet such a friendly, competent and helpful physician. Despite the terrible reason for being his patient, it is always a pleasure to be in his care. He is compassionate and treats you as if you are his ONLY patient.
