TLC service

Dr. Kersten takes the time to really listen to you and you are never rushed out of the office. He values your own insight into your health rather than feeling superior. I appreciate that I am also a voice and can have an opinion on my own health matters. His bedside manner is superior and you will always feel like you are talking to a friend. I have had so many good experiences with his style of care. TOP NOTCH!!! He will call you himself, even if he is on vacation, to touch base if there is any concern regarding a test result. Not many do that anymore!

A real-life Marcus Welby,MD!!!

Remember Marcus Welby from the 70's? Well, he was a fictional character, but Dr. Kersten is real and he is just as terrific. He is compassionate, friendly, and has a great sense of humor. He knows so much about medicine and breaks it down into a manner which I can understand. Look no further for a great doctor!
