I took my special needs child to this Dr. An intern was shadowing the Dr for the day. My child repeated a story she'd previously told the Dr to the intern who was typing. The Dr got short with my child & finished her story for her & then said, "RIGHT?" I could tell my child was choking back tears. We have a new Dr. Don't bring a mildly autistic child to a sports Dr from small town who needs to grow up. Message to K.Kern: ANYONE can have a special needs child.

Dr Kern is one of the best doctors I've ever been to. She never makes you feel like something isn't important and she never rushes you. She caring, compassionate, kind... I'm glad I switched to her last year.

She is the best doctor in this city - hands down. I had gone to another physician and had several misdiagnoses leading to some pretty severe life threatening consequences. She took the time to listen, ask questions and was able to manage my care to get me the best possible result. I should be paralyzed and in a coma from an embolism but thankfully I found Dr. Kern.

Very sweet, knowledgeable, and professional; she devotes to her patients all the time they need, and listens attentively, with a genuine interest. Her support staff could be a bit nicer and more compassionate, but Dr. Kern is well worth that minor inconvenience.

Dr. Kern is very knowledgeable, and more than willing to explain her thoughts regarding health concerns. She is also willing to discuss and explore options. I have recommended her to my friends in the area!
