Dr. Kerns is an amazing physician! He has treated my father four times now with his recurring lymphoma. I wouldn't want anyone else to treat my dad. He is wise, considerate and caring- I doubt there is a better oncologist in this area!

I have been a patient of Dr. Kerns since 2001. He saw me the first time and asked me to go home and think of any questions about my diagnosis. I returned and he sent me to Vanderbilt for another opinion. I have always felt very happy with Dr. Kerns and his staff. He listens and is compassionate.
