These doctors are nothing short of the best in the business. There is not a group in the state like them. Comprised of ALL board certified vascular surgeons. Dr. Kerr is the brains behind the operation, having seen him since his early days behind St. Joe. I haven't needed to see Dr. K in years bc of what he did for me years ago. I came in today with my neighbor who I recommended and i was ranting and raving to Frankie about Dr. Kerr. He asked if id mind giving Dr. K and the practice a review bc of my history with him. He didn't even have to finish his sentence before I signed into my google account. I cant say enough about this doctor and practice. Frankie was very informative and professional, i wouldnt expect Dr. K anyone less. Thank you for years of continued service to the Tampa Bay community.

Thank you to Dr Kerr and his team for fixing my leg. I had minimal pain, swelling and bruising after the procedure. Dr. Kerr is a great doctor and I am very happy I chose him to do my procedure and I will choose him again to fix my other leg. The office staff are efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. I would definitely recommend going here for your vein care.

Dr. Thomas Kerr and his staff are the very best in the Bussiness. They have your best interest at heart! They share all your exams with you! Try to help you but to understand the findings. Then when surgery is scheduled they bring you in ahead of time into the office to watch a film in regards to your surgical procedure. That way you know what to expect. The day after surgery you can guarantee one of the staff members will be calling you to ask how your recovery is going? I'm so grateful.

Dr Kerr is the best vascular surgeon I have ever known. He takes the time to answer all of your questions. And he gives his cell phone number if you have any Questions or problems and need to get a hold of him. I know of no other Doctor who does that.

Dr. Kerr is fantastic but his staff leaves a little to desired. Tommy, at least that is what it said on his uniform, is rude and abrupt with patients. His bedside manner is severely lacking. He needs remedial training. The front desk is not the place for checking in patients and measuring for compression stockings at the same time. More patient interaction training is needed on the part of the nurses that put patients into the rooms. Cold and not empathetic.

Dr Kerr is one of the rudest doctors I have ever been to. He was yelling at his front desk reps while patients were in the waiting room and was very aggressive I would say, towards them. To me , he talked Loud and not friendly at all I couldn’t stand it. I do not recommend this doctor to anyone! He should not even be a doctor .

My experience with Dr. Kerr and the staff at the Lutz office has been very satisfying. I suffered with varicose veins for many years before I went to see Dr.Kerr. I am amazed at how much better my legs feel. The procedure is so quick and painless. I'm very happy!

I have been seeing Dr. Kerr for several years now for vein issues (lazy valves) in both of my legs and he has performed several procedures in both legs. Dr. Kerr is straight forward and doesn't beat around the bush, which I prefer in a physician. He and his staff are extremely professional and caring and I've been able to keep an active lifestyle because of them. I am still able to run and bike great distances. Thank you, Dr. Kerr.

My experience with Dr Kerr has been exceptional. I've had two vein ablation procedures at the Waters location. Dr. Kerr and his staff are always kind, very professional, and efficient. Dr. Kerr lets you know exactly what to expect and you are in and out and done. I highly recommend Dr Kerr, if you are in need of this procedure.

Dr. kerr was a good doctor. He treated me multiple times. Every visit I went he treated me with the best care. His employees make you feel good and they take care of you. The reason I haven 't gone back is because I got very feed up with myself. I have no complaint I iwould recommend him anytime. He is a very nice and sweet person.

Dr Kerr is one of the most caring and skillful doctors that I have ever been treated by. He performed carotid artery surgery on me several years ago. What impressed me most, aside from his surgical skill, was that his care leading up to the surgery was magnificent. After monitoring the blockage for a couple of years, he finally advised that I have the surgery. There was always a feeling of his care and commitment to my well being. He never pressured me, but advised me with his concern for me.

Dr. Kerr is a great doctor with a great staff. They're very attentive and made me feel comfortable. They all talk you through everything during the procedure so you know what to expect. This is my second procedure due to bad leaky veins. My first leg is so much better!! No pain, itchiness or bulging and my bad diseased veins are gone. I am very pleased with the results.
