I was impressed from the minute I scheduled my appointment. The staff was helpful and went out of their way to get me in to see the doctor immediately. 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!

He will push for more tests to make money. Its becoming more and more common. Inconsiderate and rushing to see the next wallet. Apparent that he does not like his job and no sympathy for patients. Finding another Doctor~!

But he just gave some drops to put in my ears and told me to come back 2 weeks later for audiogram as the person who does audiogram was gone for the day...at 1.30 pm. Ok understandable. Second visit, I was 20 mins late for 9.30 appt. The girl said can't do audiogram as I am late, but insisted to see the doctor. I was thinking, I am the
