  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Great Doctor Horrible Staff!!

Dr. Kern was a very nice lady. She had a good bedside manner and did a great job. Her staff on the other hand is very rude. Several times I called to make an appointment and they acted like they were the gate keepers. They would not let me make and appointment after I was in a car accident to get checked out. They said no and I had to go through my car insurance. They do not answer questions and one time put me on hold for 20 mins. I finally had to hang up. When go to the office they are very nice to your face but over the phone extemely rude. I'm sure Dr. Kern does not know about how they treat patients otherwise I think she would fire them.
