My first choice of all the physicians I interviewed

Now that I have healed, I can honestly say that I cannot think of any way that Dr Kerner could have done more to improve my experience. Dr Kerner takes you through the process in a steady calm manner. She listens to what you want. She is kind and is there for every appt. I have a friend whose daughter had the same surgery that I did but she didn't have Dr Kerner so her experience was not as perfect. I can truly say that I recovered wonderfully. In my case, I was expecting much worse pain while I was recovering. I am now six months out from surgery and my breasts are beautiful.

Dr. Kerner has a wonderful bedside manner and explains thoroughly what can be expected. She gives her honest opinion about results to be achieved and she delivers on her promise! Because she is so gentle with tissue during her surgeries; there is minimal bruising and pain and the results are wonderful! Her follow-up care is great and I wouldn't trust my face/body to any other surgeon.

Dr. Kerner is amazing!! She listens and strives to really understand what you want. She had me bring in pictures and really tried to understand what I wanted aesthetically. She is very honest and realistic and will let you know if what you want can or cannot be achieved. She spends time with you, and doesn't make you feel rushed. Her technique is fantastic! I got exactly what I wanted from my breast augmentation and lipo with minimal discomfort and scaring. I couldn't be happier!
