Specialties

Dr. Rebecca Kerr has the following 2 specialties

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Outstanding Pain Specialist--5 Stars

I came to Dr. Kerr in excruciating pain down my thigh that affected my hip and my leg and all motions involving standing and sitting and walking. I had already been to Cedars Sinai ER and they had failed to diagnose the problem as had another doctor. I had been lying in bed for several days, unable to walk or stand due to the pain. I didn't know what to do until a friend referred me to Dr. Kerr. She made the correct diagnosis and then proceeded to inject the area around the femerol nerve with cortisone. She also prescribed several medications to get ahold of the pain. Additionally, she sent me for a CT scan to rule out other reasons for the pain. A week later I was pain free and walking. My left leg is still a little weak and I am attending Physical Therapy to work on the weakness but the relief I feel is amazing. Dr. Kerr is very conscientious and caring (she called me every day to check on my condition) and did a fabulous job of managing my care and getting rid of the pain. I am now pain-free and getting stronger every day. I highly recommend her to anyone experiencing pain for any reason. A pain specialist is the right type of doctor to handle pain. And since Dr. Kerr was initially a board certified anesthesiologist before she became a pain specialist, she is well trained in managing these powerful medications and in understanding the nature of pain.

Professional in every way

Receptionist friendly and helpful. Nurse extremely professional, friendly and helped to fill out diagnostics and sort out symptoms. Dr Kerr extremely friendly, thorough, knowledgable exam and review of all records. Suggested treatment options and meds. We feel Dr Kerr and staff are worthy of consideration for treating your pain. Within our family we have nurses, medical administrators and our one of our daughters works for a chief of surgery of a major hospital. We did not let the Dr. or staff know this. Great experience. Will follow up.
