“I was very impressed with the staff & Dr. Kern each time I have visited the office. I was in and out in a very timely manner, as well as the courtesy of each member was outstanding. Dr. Kern, as far as I am concerned, is by far one of the best surgeons. This was my actual first surgery, but I have known plenty of family members that haven't been as fortunate to acquire a good doctor. Thank you for your care!”

“Top notch care from Dr. Kern and Braxton. Allowed my anesthetic plan to watch the procedure which allowed me to ask questions during the procedure. Would suggest Dr. Kern to anyone needing arthroscopic procedures and beyond. Thank you”

“I am writing this review on behalf of my 12-year-old son. He dislocated his shoulder at the local high school football camp in July. After a few days, it was apparent that he had something concerning going on with the shoulder. I called the practice to see if there was a shoulder doctor there who would agree to see my young son. I wanted him to go to University Orthopedic Surgeons because I was a patient 23 years ago and knew they were the best around. Dr. Michael Kern agreed to see my son, and I am so happy that he did! My son was so nervous the day of surgery, but I can’t tell you, one person, from Dr. Kern on down to the receptionists at the office and surgery center, who were not exceptional. As Dr. Kern left the room the day of our test results, my son teared up, and his nurse, Debbie, walked back in on him crying and took such good care of us! My son loves Dr. Kern and Debbie! We are still in the healing process, but everything is healing great. He is their new spokesman, and anyone having shoulder complaints, he tells them about his excellent doctor and how they need to see him. Thank you, Dr. Kern and all the staff at University Orthopedic Surgeons and UT Day Surgery, for taking care of my son and making the best out of a bad situation. We are forever grateful!”

“All staff very friendly and professional. Dr. Kern was very attentive and thoroughly discussed my problem. He suggested that In addition to his treatment, which helped very much, that I see a Rheumatologist. His staff then made arrangements for my appointment with the new doctor.”
