Amazing doctor, great sense of humor and incredibly compassionate. He is also one of the smartest people I know. I actually look forwards to my appointments with him.

He really cares about his patients. Takes time to explain things in a simple and understandable manner. He is a great human being. Can't ask for more. Everyone I know who is under Doctor Kersten's care loves him. I continue to recommend him to friends and family.
