Dr. Brian Kerr diagnosed my throat cancer. He operated on me and successfully removed all of the malignancy! He is truly a compassionate Doctor whose bedside manner and patience with his patients (pun intended) is excellent. He was very thorough in his testing and diagnosis and explained everything to me in detail, more than once if issues and terminology were complex. Cancer diagnosis isn’t pleasant EVER, however after conferring with Dr. Kerr I was confident from the beginning that he was the ENT specialist and surgeon for me.

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!!!
