Have just had one visit with Dr. Kearse, found him concerned, unhurried and very pleasant. Have another appointment scheduled to follow up on treatment. So far so very good!

Double Carpal Tunnel evaluation and releases. Numbness in both hands and loss of touch and temperature sensing. Dr. Kearse explained everything and we agreed to operate. Post op results were excellent. Both hands are close to being 100% and I feel after a short time they will be. I highly recommend Dr. Kearse.

Dr Kearse not only saved my life when my hemoglobin was at THREE. He saved my ARM. The only physician in the hospital that terrifying night I had my accident with my laceration to my arm who would not allow me to walkout as an amputee. I remember him looking me dead in the eye and promising me “you will wake up with your arm i promise.” (Despite Three other Physicians saying it would be nothing but a hanging piece of meat”) A ten hour surgery all in the hands of dr Kearse and a few other surgeons I woke up with my radial ulnar arteries all my tendons and nerves put back together ( EVEN my tattoo lol)! It’s been almost two years since my accident and my hand/ arm are going great. Besides neuropathy which was inevitable because of the damage the accident caused you would never know the severity of my upper extremity without being told. I was so blessed to have Dr. Kearse on call that night at Palms West Hospital you’re a hero!

For the second time, the southern boulevard office staff has been a complete disappointment. I made an appt to receive my cortisone shot on my arthritic right hand with Dr Kearse for 11 am. I was happy to get an appointment since the pain had started up again & I was leaving the next day to attend a wedding up north. My appt was confirmed the Friday before. When I came to the office at 10:40, I was then informed that my referral had expired. I was told to get another referral, that referrals took about 3 days to obtain and to comeback another day. I immediately called my primary doctor, and was able to get a referral approved immediately. I came back in & informed his staff that a referral was immediately being faxed. It was 11:05 am.They told me that they could not wait for the referral, said it was too late, my appt was cancelled & that I could return another day. I was not late, never informed referral was expired before & sent away in pain. Dr Kearse is great but staff is horrid

Dr Kearse is has been a wonderful resource for me. He has helped me overcome some of aging processes that had begun to affect my daily abilities. I originally saw him a few years ago with hand issues that he directed me to a neck specialist. Then he treated me for trigger finger release, eventually doing a successful surgery with awesome results. Now treating some arthritis hand and elbow issues. I am grateful that I found him. Extremely caring and considerate. 10 stars for Justin & staff

I have been seeing Dr. Kearse for many years for many ailments from tendonitis, strains, tendon tears, shoulder issues and pitched nerves. I have always received excellent care. My recovery times have been better than expected. He is also very personable and genuinely caring.

Its hard to find a decent doctor in my opinion who takes the time to explain things to you and seems to care. Dr. Kearse is great as far as I am concerned. He has a great bedside manner, exudes confidence and is open to answering any questions you may have. Not enough good things i can say.

Went for mos. for hand/wrist. Sent to PT for mos., given shots. Failed. Finally agreed to trigger finger surgery. Few weeks later, finger popped out. In excruciating pain, was sent back to PT, told it would take mos. to get better. Consulted other hand specialists. Told needed surgery and PT is not done to help my condition. During 2nd surgery by another Dr.,told the tendon had been overtrimmed and post-op prescribed immobility caused major scarring, freezing of tendons creating secondary injury

Dr. Kearse, first let me start off on how fortunate I was to find this doctor he's not only very knowledgeable and well respected in this field but he is genuine and he took the time and it showed that he actually cared. It's very hard to find a doctor that will actually sit down and listen to what you're going through and your pain and work together we have to find solutions. He is an absolute amazing Doctor. The staff as well.

Dr. Kearse was very genuine and warm and I immediately felt at ease in his care. He was extremely knowledgeable without ever being verbose. While quite efficient, he was sincerely interested in fully addressing my concerns and questions without ever rushing. I appreciated his bedside manner and how gentle he was when manipulating my injury. I would certainly recommend him to family and friends! While I hope I do not need his services in the future he would be my top choice if I did!

Dr. Kearse was the orthopedic surgeon on call at Palms West Hospital when my son broke his arm. I was very happy with him at both the ER and during our subsequent follow-up visits at his Wellington office. He answered my questions thoroughly and I never felt rushed. His office staff was very nice; they were always able to get me an early morning appointment so my son wouldn't miss a day of school. We never waited more than 10 minutes in the waiting room which is rare in my experience.
