Dr. Kerr's Care Philosophy

I have practiced comprehensive ophthalmology in the Middle TN area for 17 years. Working closely with a patient's primary care provider allows me to integrate the treatment of a particular patient's eye disease with the treatment of their other medical concerns. I often have the privilege of treating different generations of a particular patient's family, and find this very helpful allowing for firsthand knowledge about a patient's family history. I enjoy both medical and surgical ophthalmology.
