Excellent surgeon. Everyone bragged on his stitches and his workmanship. I'd highly recommend him. Very nice and patient man. No complaints. I think he's the best surgeon around.

Although this was my first visit he was well prepared with detailed knowledge of my scans that he went over with me pointing out problems evident in the scans and then demonstrating on the model what could be done to alleviate those.

I liked the no nonsense straight forward approach that Dr. Kerr delivers. We live in far west Texas, so going to Dallas to chit chat is not our desire. I also was relieved that he didn't want to immediately go the route of surgery to help alleviate my neck/nerve problem.
