Dr Kern was great for me.With my daughter, they said his Physician's asst, Sarah Forsey would be better. My daughter had a bump on her lip & she wanted to stick a needle in it & do a biopsy. She had an infection on ear & she gave us some meds. Didn't work, but I couldn't get her to return a phone call! Only way to talk to her was to come in to "another" appt.I got another opinion. This dr froze the bump on her lip & it is GONE! No needle, no cutting! She gave us a different med & ears are clear

Dr. Kern is always timely, positive, and easy to talk to. The office atmosphere is friendly and non-intimidating. It has a professional and non-institutional feel. We drive 45 miles and it's 100% worth it. Terrie is very helpful and took time to clarify and make suggestions on product.

I see Dr. Kern every time I return home on college breaks. If I have a concern in between trips home, he is always happy to speak with me over the phone. He is a very kind doctor who always takes the time to make sure I understand my condition and treatment plan. My whole family and I love him!

Every experience I've had in this office has been incredibly quick and professional. He is prompt and in tune to how the patient is feeling. I was nervous when having my first skin cancer removed but he and his staff made me feel comfortable and at ease. They ensured I understood exactly what was happening at every step of the procedure.

He refused to diagnose a condition that was totally manageable for years. One of his aestheticians told me what I had during a treatment and i haven't gone back since, because there has been no need. This is after 5 years of seeing him.
