Care Philosophy

Our practice, unlike others in the Tampa area, has the ability to diagnose and treat the entire vascular system. This not only includes state of the art treatment of spider and varicose veins but other arterial or lymphatic diseases as well. We are the only practice in the Tampa Bay area that completely focuses on the vascular system as a whole instead of just one part. Unlike most practices, we are also uniquely trained and experienced to offer all forms of diagnosis and therapy. Our state-of-the-art Nationally Accredited Vascular Laboratory was built for the purpose of diagnosing and treating venous and arterial disease. It is one of only a few in the state that is a nationally accredited vascular laboratory. At the Vein and Vascular Institute of Tampa Bay we have the most advanced technologies available anywhere, such as the Philips EnVisor HD system for color duplex ultrasound which is used to accurately and painlessly detect and diagnose all venous and arterial diseases.Read more

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.
