Impressive doctor

Ive only had one visit so far with Dr. Kerr as of yet, so diagnosis and follow up, I can't accurately say. I was frustrated at first with the wait but when I met him I understood why there was such a long wait and it was worth it. He spends time with his patients. I have never met a doctor who is so thorough and knowledgable. He spent at least 2 hours with me going over tests, asking and answering questions, ordering more tests, understanding my symptoms, and the list goes on. I have never left a doctors office feeling so confident in my care before and after just one meeting with this man I feel that he is just amazing. He is easy to talk to and in no way made me feel inferior as many doctors do. Of all the professionals I have met in the medical field, this man is by far my favorite. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for expertise in his field. On top of all this he has a sense of humor that many doctors lack, which makes him even easier to talk to.
