About Dr. Kerns

 Acupuncture physician, Dr. Jeannette "Jett" Kerns, AP, DOM, L.Ac. was born and raised in the Alaskan bush, where there were no hospitals or doctors and herbal medicine and home remedies kept villagers healthy. 

After moving the lower 48 and experiencing Western medicine and finding it cold and impersonal, Dr. Kerns wanted to share her passion for natural healing with others. She earned her Master’s degree in Oriental Medicine in 2012 from the Florida College of Integrative Medicine in Orlando, Florida and opened her own clinic in Saint Cloud, Florida. 


Dr. Kerns has been voted "Best Doctor" in Osceola County and is regularly published in local newspapers. She is best known for her quick wit, easy smile and genuine desire to help others. She combines knowledge, experience and compassion in every treatment.
