I saw Dr. Kershen for a surgical procedure and it was successful. He explains what he recommends and why clearly, and he has a no nonsense, straightforward approach to urinary medicine. His bedside manner is good, too. I like his staff who are friendly and responsive, both online and via telephone. That said, it's not instant, though these days, nothing is instant in healthcare, so it's on par with that. Overall, I'd recommend him.

Dr. Kershen is a doctor I would recommend in a New York City second. He is both professional and friendly in his approach to helping you. More importantly, he is fully competent and successful in delivering the medical solutions you need.

You can’t get a hold of the doctor and his staff is rude. They kept my Mom waiting when she had infections. She ended up with such a bad infection that we almost lost her. Definitely wouldn’t recommend this doctor.

His staff is wildly unprofessional and rude. He has no regard for the health of my 91-year-old grandmother who has called him numerous times for help. This doctor and his staff are hacks. If you take your life seriously, stay away.
