Patient Comments (5)
Terrible service. Doctor lied directly to patient and is now actively avoiding patient not to mention apparently advising or at least allowing his receptionist/phone answerers such as Heidi and others to hang up whenever trying to contact doctor to find out why patient was lied to. Avoid this doctor and his practice at all costs!

Dr. Kerrison is an extremely nice and knowledgeable doctor. He put my fears to rest and was genuinely concerned for my well being and assured me that he would take care of my problem. He answered all my questions and explained it in a way that I could understand! Compassionate and humble. He and his staff impressed me greatly!

Excellent physician. One of the most compassionate and knowledgeable physicians you will ever meet. Dr. Kerrison is a patients first Doctor. He is extremely flexible and will do anything to help a patient in need. I have never met a harder working physician. Cannot recommended him enough. Would not trust any other doctor more than him for my care.

Sitting home the day after surgery with a jacked up eye. He did not keep his post op appointment, and his staff did not call me back as they said they would. I will probably be in the emergency room before the night is over.

Very arrogant Doctor , very poor patient interaction. Misdiagnosis and no suggestions on follow up. Worst Doctor appointment in my entire life.
