Your rights and protections against surprise medical bills

Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice.

I took months of data from Mri's and Ct scans to him. He is a surgeon and yet he discerned surgery wasnt the right option for me... Surgery wouldnt be worth the pain and recovery at this stage in my life. I respect and thank God for this Dr, his wisdom and telling me and my husband the Truth. Emmanuel indeed. Pls pass this onto Dr Kerr. Thank you BSW.

Dr. Kerr and his team were the very best. I was in. Horrible car accident, and my neck was seriously injured. Dr. Kerr took the time to explain everything that was wrong to my family and what he needed to do to fix the problems. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Kerr.

Dr. Kerr saw me within a few days after I called for an appointment. He seemed very knowledgeable about his area of expertise. He took plenty of time to show replicas of the bones and nerves in the spine to assure I fully understood the report about my spine MRI and what treatments/surgeries I could choose. He gave me time to ask questions and was kind and courteous throughout my appointment.

Dr. Kerr spent a lot of time with me discussing my case in detail including extensive history and multiple tests. He independently did research on my condition and called me later to provide an update on his diagnosis. He referred me to the premier specialist for my rare situation. He was great!
