Patient Comments (10)
in Sterling Heights, MI |
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.
Auburn Hills, MI |
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.
Antioch, TN |
Caring, Compassionate and Competent.
in Troy, Michigan |
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.
in Leonard |
Dr. Kernen is a wonderful and very kind Dr. I have been going to him for a long time. I trust all his decision for me!!!!!
in Royal Oak, MI |
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.
in Clawson, MI |
Always conservative and cautious. Explains the reasons for my state and proper treatment options. Cares about my wellbeing and always asks if I understand what we have discussed. He is genuine and everything I look for in a physician.
Birmingham, MI |
Dr. Kernen is very personable and grounded. He is an avid runner and has very strong communication skills. He will talk to you and answer your questions. He also has a NP in Karen Marzella, who is very nice and extends herself in unexpected service. highly recommend both of them.
Royal Oak, MI |
Dr. Kernen helped me through a crisis with kidney stones, choosing pain management instead of surgery. He also treated me for Low-T. He is very supportive, he listens (how rare is that?), and he knows his stuff.
in Troy, MI |
Dr. Kernan made me feel extremely comfortable and I have the utmost faith in him. He is very easy to talk to about anything.
