in Martinez, CA |
Dr. Kerlin is a great surgeon who easies your worries and answers all your questions before moving towards a surgery. My family is prone to having gallbladder issues and many of my family members including myself have had their gallbladders out. Dr. Kerlin has performed 4 of those surgeries. She's amazing! None of us have had complication or issues and it's been years now for some of us. All great results!
Dr Kerlin performed a lumpectomy on me in 2012. She is the best of the best (caring, very thorough, extremely knowledgable and an excellent surgeon). As of today 3/22/16, my mammogram is clear. I contribute being four years clear to being under Dr. Kerlin's expert care!

Dr. Kerkin is a very talented surgeon, and a very kind and compassionate woman. She performed two breast cancer surgeries on me, and successfully removed the tumor while conserving breast tissue. I am very grateful for her talent as a surgeon, and her compassionate human spirit.
