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.
in Tampa, FL |
My experience was exceptional. Dr Kerr was very kind and patient in answering all of my questions. All through the procedure he would ask if I was OK. I appreciated his concern for my well being. ......The staff was very efficient and courteous. I would, and have, recommended Dr Kerr to friends and family. If I need him in the future, I would feel very comfortable going to him again. Thank you Dr Kerr and staff for all you do the insure the health of many.

Dr. Kerr's 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.
