love Dr. Kern


I have never had a doctor that doesn't haphazardly tell me to lose weight in every single appointment. Dr. Kern is the only doctor I've ever seen who asked me about exercise and my eating habits and my mental health and everything else and didn't make me feel bad about my weight. This is the second time I've seen her and both times she has been so wonderful I cried in relief afterward because I have had SO MANY traumatizing experiences with other doctors. I recommended her to all of my plus-size friends so I truly hope that she (and everyone else on staff) treats them with the same respect I've gotten from her because it is the single biggest highlight I have gotten from SCL Health and it is the biggest relief to know that I don't need to dread and put off going to the doctor anymore.




I have high esteem for *Dr. Kern in her medical expertise, compassion, concern for my health and patience.
