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!
