Dr. Kern is one of the best!! She did my son's Strabimus surgery 15 yrs ago and it has been perfect ever since, never needing an additional surgery to further correct. You can expect perfection if she is your surgeon !
They are the worse practice I have ever been at. Front desk employees are plain rude and inefficient. I called to schedule an appointment. They hanged up on me while I was asking a question. Stay away from this practice!

-Cancels appointments made months in advance to take vacations. -One secretary was very rude not sure if she still works there. -Have to always sit and wait a long time (what is the purpose of appointment time?) -Not conscious about patient feelings (can be rude) Not really worth the hassle and wait!
