Verified Patient Reviews
I thought Dr. Kern was great. He was very thorough and talked me through a variety of issues I had been dealing with. He was very personable and made me feel extremely comfortable. Very interested in maintaining a relationship with his patients which I believe to be necessary for top-notch medical care.
After a pretty awful experience with a new PCP in Oakland, I found out about Zocdoc, and then through Zocdoc found out about Dr. Kern. Dr. Kern was polite, professional, attentive and everything you could want in a PCP. The office is beautiful and clean and the girls at the front desk were super nice. I'm very thankful to have found someone trustworthy to have as my PCP.
Very kind and attentive
Smooth, efficient. Nice office. Staff are awesome. Dr was prompt, empathetic and informative.
Dr. Kern was straightforward and helpful. I felt supported & genuinely cared for -- there was a striking difference between this appointment and every other appointment I've had in the past 5-10 years.
Dr. Kern is very congenial and empathetic person. I highly recommend him.
Doctor Michael Kern, was great, the assistant that checked me in was awesome, but the assistance that checked me out with the finial results was the worse, she was on her cell phone the whole time did not explain anything to me regarding the next steps, dhe simply handed me the papers and said to have a nice day while on her phone
It was fast and responsive, which was what I needed. Other doctors in the area were not good at scheduling appointments within even the month they were requested.
The office is lovely and Dr. Kern saw me as soon as I was done with my paperwork and my vitals were taken. He was very polite and patient when asking me questions instead of rushing me along like many other doctors have.
Nice office, nice staff, and great Dr!
Great knowledgable kind and patient
One of the most earnest and endearing doctors I've met with.
Very easy, nice guy
One of the best experiences I've had. The team and Dr. Kern were great.
Dr. Kern listened carefully to what I told him. He explained everything in detail and with pictures. No waiting time.
Took time and was very thorough getting my medical history; front desk receptionist was so very nice and professional; great place!
Friendly staff and clean well organized office!
Personable, caring, thoughtful. I would come again.
Through Zocdoc my doctor already knew what I was in the office for and with minimal paperwork I was sent to the back for traditional blood pressure, weight and height check. I waited in the patient room for less that 5 min before Dr. Kern came to visit. He was friendly, easy to talk to and I could tell he had an appreciation for caring for his patients.
