Kara Kern, MD

Meet Dr. Kara Kern, a physician with Family Healthcare Affiliates

Dr. Kara Kern graduated from the Miami School of Medicine (now Miller School of Medicine) in 1999. She completed her family medicine residency training at the UTMB Family Residency Program in Conroe in 2002. She has been practicing with Family Healthcare Affiliates since 2003. She values working with an independent, small practice that allows the providers ample visit time to spend with patients.

After over 20 years of practice in the same location, Dr. Kern has been fortunate to get to see the positive impact that general and preventative medicine can make in a patient's life. She practices general outpatient family medicine with an emphasis on older adult care.

Prior to becoming a physician, Dr. Kern pursued a career in editing (Holt, Rinehart and Winston Foreign language textbooks and later Southern Boating Magazine) then chemistry studies. Dr. Kern enjoys the outdoors in just about any form and loves the science of medicine.
