Patient Comments (10)
Pleasanton, CA |
Failed to diagnose my illness in a host of visits. One trip to a different ENT accomplished what Dr Kearns couldn't in a summer of visits. Didn't find the atmosphere in the office to be particularly positive and at times were downright rude. Found that the staff/Doctors didn't listen or care much. Would not recommend this office. Discontinued my appointments there without explanation.

I’ve been dealing with a ringing in my ear and ear pain for months. After seeing multiple doctors, I was eventually referred to Dr Kearns who has been outstanding. He asked a lot of questions and listened to gain a complete understanding of what I was going through. He discovered the problem and I am now pain free. He and his staff were incredibly helpful and I had a great experience. I couldn’t recommend him more

Dr. Kearns has assisted me with a number of medical issues throughout the past few years. I trust his expertise and recommendations regarding treatment. He is very patient, open-minded, and will explain problems in an easily comprehensible manner. He is responsive to my questions--even when the answer seems obvious. Also, his office staff is so helpful. Highly recommended.

Was able to squeeze me in last minute and was able to quickly and thoroughly address my throat concerns. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff!
in Woodland, CA |
I've had ear aches for over 6 years and have seen countless specialists to correct my condition. As soon as I was referred to Dr. Kearns, he took wonderful care of me, listening to all of my concerns and addressing each individually. He created a thorough and comprehensive treatment plan all while ensuring I was comfortable with his recommendations. I could not recommend Dr. Kearns enough!

People generally don't bother to write reviews unless they are upset. When I read these reviews they did not square with my experiences with Dr. Kearns, where I have been a patient for almost 10 years. My impression of Dr. Kearns is he is a thorough and knowledgeable doctor who will explain his observations in great detail and doesn't mind answering questions. I recommend him without reservations.
in Citrus Heights, CA |
Well after 4 ear aches this year and several visits to the er and to my general practitioner he referred me out to see sac ent for further and or better treatment? Lol that is when the problems began, keep in mind I am fifty with decernable memories of ear aches and treatments including ear drum replacement surgery at 11! The point is that not anyone can decider my ear problem thus ENT DOCTOR. No but they use the old bait and switch with me and scheduale me with a PA NOT MD and to make matters w
Sacramento, CA |
Dr. Kearns was very professional when I came to him. I would definitely recommend him.
Fair Oaks, CA |
Doctor Kearns is well educated but focuses on the down side. He said he could fix my nose but it was complicated and I should stay with the medicine that did not help. Did not respond to my problems with the cpac just said use it more. I was/am already using it all night. It is like he is debating with himself and your not in the room. I have met Philosophy professors who spoke more directly and were more concerned about me.
Citrus Heights |
His ego interfers with patient care. Definitely has superior type attitude.
