Inconsiderate

Does not respect people’s time! Any time you have an appointment it’s 60-90 minute wait! Apparently he’s a decent neurosurgeon, but will not use him due to him not respecting my time

staff

Dr. Kern is a wonderful surgeon, but getting in to see him for future problems is almost impossible. He has so many patients, that you have to wait weeks to get in regardless of problem or pain. Staff on the phone were rude from the start and not helpful at all.

Carpal Tunnel

I had to have carpal tunnel surgery, both hands. I also have an issue with pinched nerve in my neck. Dr. Kern did the carpal tunnel surgery right hand first, month later left hand. I cannot say enough good things about this Doctor, he listens, explains procedure 100%, answers any questions. I trust Dr. Kern
