Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Kerr is the best doctor in his specialties that you can find anywhere in the country. As repeated many, many times, explains everything well and in simple terms, spends more time with you that you almost have to end the appointment yourself. If you don't see Dr Kerr, you'll be making a big, big mistake.
