I have been a patient of Dr. Kerr's for the past year and I agree that she is the best pain management specialist in Los Angeles. I was referred to her by the most recognized orthopedic specialty office in Los Angeles. When I went to see her I had been in severe cervical pain for months. She did thorough physical examination as well as of my records and gave me a straight forward, honest recommendation as to how we should proceed. Today I can say my treatment plan has been a complete success!
I've now been seeing Dr Kerr for nearly a year(wow)! If you are looking for a cattle call kind of experience this is NOT it. Give yourself plenty of time, my in/out appointment is usually about an hour. Dr Kerr is thorough and informative and most of all I trust her. I'm concerned that other Drs will just prescribe (my next review) without monitoring your health or wellbeing but I feel safe here and am here to stay.
Dr. Kerr is my new best friend!!! I was in excruciating pain for over a year and a half. My pain was caused from degenerative disc disease. I have been an active person my entire life Snow skiing, water skiing, skydiving etc. With just a simple procedure I am now 100% pain-free thanks to Dr. Kerr. Dr Kerr takes time to listen to me no matter how many questions I may have. I am sure the procedure will have to be repeated at some point as it is not a cure but my body is pain free and that is good enough for me.
hanks to her very professional, and personal regard for her patients, she didn't give up on me. With her dedication and compassion, I am so much better. Dr. Kerr has helped me regain a lot of hours in a day, back to normalcy. I would highly recommend Dr. Kerr to anyone, and, I am confident, she can help.
I just had an appointment with Dr Kerr. It has been some time since I have needed to see her but a recent fall set me back a bit in my progress.She was, as always, kind and compassionate. Yes, you might have to wait a bit before you get in a room but the fact is, she spends quite a bit of time with each of her patients because she cares about all of us. The staff here are also super sweet (this is the Los Angeles location). I highly recommend her still:-)
