She delivered my son 28 years ago. she was very progressive and conscientious of my desires and needs way back then. I can’t imagine having another doctor to have delivered my child that could’ve been a better fit for me then she was. She made a not so pleasant experience One that I still look back at and thank God she was a part of! Thumbs up!

I see Dr. Zern for my annual well woman visits. I absolutely adore her. Appointments with Dr Zern put me in a calm and happy mood for the rest of my day due to her wonderfully warm bedside manner, which is something I previously haven't experienced with annual gyn visits! She takes time with me to answer all of my questions. She is kind, compassionate, and thorough. I would definitely recommend her. I cannot speak regarding pregnancy/obstetrics, however, since I have not ever been pregnant.

Dr. Zern is a knowledgeable doctor, but I cannot recommend her. I felt extremely disrespected and mislead by her. During our appointment we discussed birth control options. She lied to me by telling me 1 that birth control pills were 100% effective, & 2,that there are no side effects to be concerned about. I brought up that ive heard they were linked to elevated blood pressure, clotting, and depression. She said, "you don't need to worry about it. I'm the doctor". Well, this is my body, and I do
