Dr. Kerns is very calm, reassuring, thorough, and pleasant. He explains everything he is doing, and talks the patient through the exam. He did a scope to view my vocal cords, and It was much easier and less uncomfortable than I expected! He really Is concerned about his patients, and even though he is very busy in the office he takes his time with his patients.

Dr. Sam Kerns is an amazing doctor! Not only is he skilled and knowledgeable, he's also incredibly compassionate and kind - when he did my scope, he was attentive to my physical comfort level and talked me through it so calmly and slowed down when needed in order to make it more tolerable. He accommodated my schedule and took more than the normal amount of time a doctor would usually spend with their patient. I would refer my family and friends to him. Thank you, Dr. Kerns! You're the best!

I have always had a positive experience with this care provider and another one whom he recommended. My significant other went to him for his sore throat and was diagnosed with Lymphoma and sought care with an Oncologist. He is his savior.

I told the doctor that I would want to know the cost of any procedure before I scheduled it and asked for the billing codes so I could do that research with my insurance. He then offered to have his staff do that for me! I really appreciated that. I had also asked about a hearing test and he said we could wait to see about scheduling the procedure and do both on the same day so that I wouldn't be inconvenienced by having to come back twice. I really appreciate doctors who understand that our time is valuable too!
