My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
I chose to affiliate with MDVIP so I can partner with you in the practice of primary care medicine. I will now have the necessary time to care for you and develop a personalized wellness plan. I will work tirelessly with you to make informed decisions toward achieving your healthcare goals- whether it is an exercise program, losing weight or reducing the number of medications you are on. My special interest is in preventive health, and I believe that a healthy diet, exercise and emotional well-being are the keys to longevity. I am also interested in new state of the art procedures in joint preservation. Integrative medicine is important to me as well, and I add chiropractic medicine, acupuncture and laser referrals to my care plans as needed.
Through more than three decades of practice, I have built relationships with top specialists and centers of excellence. I will help guide you to the specialist who best fits your unique needs and coordinate your care throughout the process.
I am on staff at several hospitals in Oakland County, Michigan: William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, St. John Providence in Southfield, Providence Park in Novi and Henry Ford Hospital in West Bloomfield.

Dr. Kerner is a kind, caring, highly professional physician. She is knowledgeable beyond compare. I am extremely fortunate to have received a recommendation for her from a friend. MDVIP and I are lucky to have Dr. Kerner in our corner.
Dr. Kerner facilitated my transfer to the hospital that was equipped to deal with my injury and the surgeon whom had the skill to repair my fracture after II fell several months ago. If it were not for the persistence of Dr. Kerner, I don't believe I would have had such a positive outcome and for that I am most grateful.
Dr. Kerner has the time to listen to my concerns. I recently had knee replacement
surgery. She guided me through the process prior to surgery, and the recovery
period post surgery. Any time I need her she returns my call, or text promptly.
I am out of town for six months but when Ineeded advice from Dr. Kerner she immediately called me and told me to call 911 imediately and go to the hospital. I was having a silent heart attack and she recognised my symtons. I think she ultimately saved my life.
I am a new member of MDVIP. Dr. Kerner had been my doctor for several years before she left her practive. Therefore, I joined MDVIP to renew my association with her. She is an excellent, personable, physician who constantly researches new information. She never presents herself in a superior I know it all manner. In other words, she is very much a human being. I appreciate that.
Dr. Kerner has been my physician for over 20 years and I have always trusted my health 100 to her! She is an amazing diagnostician and doctor. She is extremely perceptive, kind and caring. I have recommended her numerous times and my friends have been grateful. She embodies what a top physician should be! Thank you for your service Dr. Kerner!
I am so thankful for Dr Kerner. She is so thorough in her examinations, professional and competent. She has great empathy. She makes time to delve into the details so that she has a good understanding of my medical situation, my history and personal concerns. I always leave feeling very confident in her recommendations. She encourages me as I follow her advice. The result is I am feeling… See more
