Dr. McKernan took time to listen to my concerns and explained what procedures needed to be done. This Doctor knows his stuff and I would recommend him to anyone.

The doctor was very knowledgeable and explained in detail reasons for my ear pain. It was nice to be in a medical office that was competent from the minute I checked in until I was checked out. This physician actually listens!
