Learn about Dr. Kerr

Care Philosophy

Although I am a Head and Neck Surgeon my approach is conservative. I enjoy educating patients about their condition, discussing options and developing treatment strategies that fit their goals. For instance, I feel it is important to identify and treat significant allergies, if they are present, before proceeding directly to sinus surgery. Conversely, some conditions, such as concern for cancer, warrant an aggressive approach to provide diagnosis, staging and treatment plans. I value the relationships I have with my patients - whether for just a few visits or for several years.

Dr. Kerr worked with me over several months. He was always attentive when I described my symptoms, and thorough in his evaluation. He took time to educate me on what he was looking at, and why it was important, and to answer my questions. Within the bounds of reasonable options, he was always willing to consider the full range of treatment plans, and go with what I was comfortable with. I feel much better, and can breath freely after his treatments. Great doctor, great results!

He is the BEST ENT/Specialist in town! One of the few doctors I actually enjoy going to see. He knows his stuff, he listens, and has a great sense of humor. I've had allergies (and nasal polyps) for years, and he has helped me through some very difficult times. Thank you so much Dr. Kerr to you and your staff!!!
