Patient Reviews
Apr 17, 2024
From my consult to Medtronic Stimulation trial to removal of temporary equipment, was very well organized. Appointment scheduling times were not unrealistically long. I spent no time waiting in waiting or exam room. The procedure was a bit uncomfortable, as any would be, but they did everything in their power to make me comfortable. Everything was explained as the procedure was being performed, which I appreciated. You even have the option to listen to music to help ease any anxiety. Dr. Kershen is one of a few in the State that has the training and knowledge to perform the procedure. It went so well, I’ve scheduled my permanent installation.From the scheduling of consult to the office staff to Dr. Kirsten to the Medtronic rep, Alex to the surgery scheduler, they are a well oiled machine and as caring as they come!
