Don't know who the unhappy person who wrote the other comment is but he/she is way off. We have been patients of Dr. (Kim) Kern's for over 10 years. She is the most on-time doctor we have ever had. She spends time with us and has an amazing ability to connect with her patients. She is smart and professional. Our only critique is that it's harder to get an appointment now (vs 10 years ago) because her practice has grown so much!
Misdiagnosised both my twins. Tried to make me reschedule when I was literally two minutes late for an appointment. Several times I waited over hour for my kids appointments. Always rescheduling our appointments for her vacation time. Support staff will spend weeks trying to figure out her schedule before they can schedule you in. Charged over 200.00 for a two minutes appointment.
