"What a blessing"

“Dr Kerner was highly recommended to me by OBGYN as well as my Urologist. What a blessing that I decided to take a chance with her. From my first appointment, procedure, to my follow ups, she exceeded my expectations for care and understanding. She always listened to my concerns and helped me feel at ease.

"I know I can trust"

“It’s been more than 7 years since I lived in the Dallas area. While I’ve had doctors in two other states, they simply cannot hold a candle to Dr. Kerner. When I’m in Texas – she’s my ‘go-to’. Her staff is more than accommodating and I’ve never been disappointed. Whether it’s a quick facial or something more complex I know I can trust everyone to be courteous, prompt and offer absolute platinum level products and services.”

"She’s a terrific doctor and person"

Dr. Kerner has been one of my doctors since 1990. We both have done some moving around in those 28 years but, since she’s a terrific doctor and person, I’ve always stayed with her when I needed her expertise and or guidance. Her office staff is great too, and have been with Dr. Kerner for a long time. It’s been great to have such continuity – especially with her and her Office Manager, Jennifer. I look forward to going there whenever it’s necessary – Jennifer and the other staff are always so bright and cheerful when you walk in the door. There’s never been an issue (insurance, etc.) that didn’t get resolved in an extremely timely manner. Whenever I’ve needed a referral, Jennifer has been “johnny-on-the-spot” and gotten back with me timely. Dr. Kerner is one of my most favorite doctors, and her office atmosphere is excellent – friendly, peaceful, relaxing. What a great office!

"Dr Kerner and staff helped me feel beautiful"

“Dr. Kerner has been taking care of needs for my family for years. When I had a basal cancer discovered on my face, she walked me through the entire process and took care of the final stages of cosmetic closure and healing. People can’t believe I ever HAD a procedure, as there is virtually no discernible scar. I recently had some filler work done before my daughter’s wedding, and Dr Kerner and staff helped me feel beautiful for the special day. Dr Kerner always explains things thoroughly, and there is so much benefit from her years of experience. I love her low-key, friendly demeanor that is the perfect pairing to her surgical skill. ”

"Impeccable grace, sensitivity, and always with a smile"

“Dr. Kerner, Jennifer and all the other wonderful staff at her office have taken great care of me and my family for over 20 years. They have all helped me through some very scary and unsettling news, met my physical and emotional needs, and have always done this with impeccable grace, sensitivity, and always with a smile on their faces. They are ALL truly a Godsend to me and my family. There is never a doubt in my mind that when I am in need of the type of care and services provided by Dr. Kerner’s office, it will be her and her capable, compassionate staff that I will turn to!”

"I felt so comfortable that I was in excellent hands"

“Dr. Kerner is an excellent physician. She is very kind as well as her office staff. I was nervous at first but after meeting Dr. Kerner and her nurses I felt so comfortable that I was in excellent hands and all of my worries were gone. Dr. Kerner was even so comforting as we were rolling into the OR. Dr. Kerner has the kindest heart and explained everything so well and honestly to me. I really appreciate everything that was done to care for me. I can’t wait to see the results!”
