Dr. Morton J Kern has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

The Worst

This guy is an egotistical jack. Made me wait TWO hours to be seen and waltzes in like he was doing me some kind of favor. Diagnoses COMPLETELY at odds with my fabulous cardiologists in Washington, DC. Kern could care less----DO NOT entrust him with your heart and health. RUN DO NOT WALK ELSEWHERE.
