What People Say About Dr. Paul Kerns, MD

PTSD sufferers stay away! Today the most disturbing, belittling and demeaning appointment made me leave feeling that Dr feels I should disappear. I had a panic attack in the overly loud and unprofessional waiting room. I was taken after over an hour after my appointment time while in a full panic terror watching every white person scheduled through 1:30 taken before me and I was early for a 12:45 Appointment. The nurse was wonderful, calmed me down with a 101 degree temperature that they did not take, a wbc count of 17.7 and pain superseding my prescriptions for a collapsed spine. I was so jacked up from the waiting room that my ears were filled with fluid, it made my pain increase and my blood pressure rise. The doctor was sleazy at best. He did not do an exam per schedule and I was relieved he did not see me naked. He told me that crystalline hunk leaking from my breast with pain is normal for a woman who never had children. And much more.

I have never been treated so poorly by a healthcare provider. I strongly believe that Dr. Kerns went into OB/GYN so that he could belittle women. Highly do not recommend.

If I could give negative starts I would. He couldn't answer any of my questions, incorrectly placed my IUD, put me through unnecessary painful procedures, and charged me for services he did not perform. Overall, I thought he was rude and incompetent.

If you want someone to make you feel like you are getting a hug full of rainbows and butterflies, this is not your guy. If you want someone who is highly competent who will ensure that you are fully informed, Dr. Kerns IS your guy. All aspects of my surgery were completed with exceptional skill and every appointment with him is efficient. That is the kind of medical professional from whom I wish to receive care. I highly recommend Dr. Kerns for routine and emergency care.

I thought Dr Kerns was great, and completely trusted his advice. He seems very well informed, even with new research and guidance. He took the time to answer all of my questions. He talks fast, but I never felt rushed. I like his no-nonsense, factual approach.

I was hesitant to go to a male OBGYN. However, I had great experience with Dr Kern. He was easy to talk to, displayed great active listening skills and was very honest. I would recommend him to anyone;

I do not recommend Dr. Kerns to anyone. I had the worst experience, he was rude, arrogant and would not listen to my concerns or answer my questions. He also refused to run lab work on me that I requested to check my hormone levels. Please take my advise and find a OBGYN that is caring, knowledgeable, and willing to work with you to get to the bottom of your concerns.

Knowledgeable and efficient, but comes off as patronizing and uninterested in patient concerns.

We met with Dr Kerns because our doc was called into emergency surgery. We have our birth plan in place and my wife and baby are both healthy and doing well. When he first walked into the room he expressed concern that it was our due date and immediately started talking induction. Everything he said sounded negative, and he was very pushy toward getting something scheduled right away. He said very little positive, and was very fear based in his approach. Don't trust this doc, do your research.

I moved to Wausau in the middle of Pregnancy & needed a provider accepting new patients & my insurance. I was Recommended Dr. Kern's he was great listened to all my questions. I Google a lot and research questions, and he answered them all and put my mind at ease. I had two C-Sections prior to seeing Dr. Kern's and didn't want to attempt a VBAC he performed C-Sections for my now 18-month-old I was very happy I got pregnant again and requested him again as my provider for my now 6 month old.
