Dr Kern was dismissive, did not listen and was condescending and rude..he put words in my mouth and assumed he knew everything about me from a 7 minute visit... Had absolutely no bedside manner and his God complex was nauseating... When i returned to the front desk the staff asked me how I liked him...they knew! He is leaving the practice to go work at the VA... Everyone else I encountered at UCI Cardiology were kind, helpful and professional. He gave me meds and said see a specialist???
