Worst doctor I’ve ever had, he has no empathy, talks down to you. Worst of all, when Youy try and tell him about your pain or concerns he dismisses it. I had surgery last week with him and he said he’d be there for me “every step of the way”. Not only did this not happen, but the pain medicine I was prescribed by him accumulated in my system and overdosed me causing me to require an ambulance. Then when I went in for my first post op appointment a few days later, he didn’t even know it happened.

My first visit with Dr Kerr was wonderful. He and his nurse took a lot of time with me & answered all my questions. My rotator cuff surgery went real well My post- op appointment was very disappointing. I felt like I wasn't important any longer. I was in a sling & asked to undress myself which I couldn't. After Dr Kerr saw me, I was left in the exam room by myself for some length of time. I had to ask for help to dress. Upon returning home, I noticed 1 stitch was left in. Surgery done=don't care

Dr. Kerr has performed two surgeries for me on my knee and shoulder and is excellent. I recently became injured again but unfortunately no longer live in Michigan. Dr. Kerr still made himself available for a phone consult and has been very supportive. I believe that communication is important with injuries for pre and post surgery and Dr. Kerr has always made himself available.
