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.

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!

Dr. Kerr is awesome. Lays it all out for you to consider. Thorough explanations that you can understand. Very personable. Shocked that a neurosurgeon said surgery was way down the line. Told me that I was not impaired and was OK. Did not even recommend prophylaxis. Agreed on how to handle on my own and he reviewed potential options if it got worse. He told me that I needed to stay away from doctors like him. I would definitely go back to him in the future if I have problems. I really like and respect him and would have absolutely no problem putting my life in his hands.

Dr. Kerr is an outstanding physician! He is kind, caring, easy to talk to. He thoroughly explains everything and is very patient when answering questions. I feel from him that he has a genuine care for his patients. I was very nervous before my surgery and Dr. Kerr put both myself and my husband at ease.His staff is very kind and professional and are so very helpful.I feel so blessed to that Dr. Kerr was the one who God put in my path to perform my surgeries.
