"I haven't had my surgery yet, but I want to say that Dr. John Kern has impressed me. The first doctor that I saw in my town just didn't have a good bedside manner from telling me (while I was all by myself) that I had to have heart surgery - this was a shock to me. I never expected that....there was such an uneasiness with this first doctor but I thought staying in my town would be better for my family - but the worries and fears never left me - I didn't feel comfortable putting my life in this first doctor's hands. So I went to UVA and met Dr. John Kern. Everything about my visit there from the moment I walked through the door was positive. The people who I dealt with - the nurse, the PA, the girls in the office and then Dr. Kern walked in - I was immediately put at ease - I knew this was going to be my doctor. I have only great things about him from several other doctors that I know - and I know that I made the right decision and I have total peace about my upcoming surgery in two weeks."
