Over 10 years i have followed her three offices. I trust her with my life. She answers all my questions and helps me with a plan for my medical needs. I have gone through many surgeries. A week after I was placed on a VAC pump after a serious infection, i got a call from her office telling me to get an exam and talk to her about my recovery. Her concern for my recovery was real. I see her every few months and have appropriate blood work to make certain i am on track. I appreciate her care.

Great family doctor. She is mindful of your problems, she has a suggestion for every dilemma, she is prepared for your visit, and she understands your health history. I’ve gone to Dr Kern for 20 years and have been happy with her ever since my first visit.

I have been a patient for 12 years and I think her medical care is very good. Dr Kern is thorough and thoughtful. She listens to my concerns and makes suggestions. She provides referrals if problems are beyond her expertise. She is somewhat cautious about prescribing medicine, which is what I want. You do have to speak up and make an effort to connect on a personal level.

Lisa has been my physician for more a decade. I moved out of state for 7 years and missed having her excellent care during that period. She has always paid attention to my medical needs and explains what my symptoms mean, provides necessary care or gives an appropriate referral. She interacts with my other physicians and is aware of my status at each stage of my treatment. This gives me a lot of confidence in my healthcare. I highly recommend Lisa as a person and a physician.

Dr Kern is very caring & thorough. At our last wellness visit Dr Kern had a sheet of hand written notes about our history and questions for us. This let me know that she took the time to look into our medical histories and that she had a thorough plan in mind for our visit. I love how organized she is and how well she listens to what you have to say. She works WITH YOU on your health goals.

Dr. Kern is incredibly competant, caring and thorough. She make sure all the details of you care are discussed, and she follows through on recommending referrals. The referral department at St Al's is understaffed. It took from Sept. 27 to October 5 the received at pt referral through the St Al's system.

Dr. Kern has been my PCP for over a decade now. I am continually moved by her diligence and compassion to address my health concerns and general well being. It is odvious that she loves her vocation and rigorously provides her best service. She is a "listener" versus a "hearer". Her staff are very kind and well informed. I thank God for this woman and find her very inspiring. I do recommend her to my friends.
