Ratings for Dr. Robert Kerr
I love knowing that all of Dr. Kerr's team have training in LGBTQ+ positive space, and there are lots of materials posted making it clear that they are knowledgeable and inclusive around these identities. Sometimes they're running a bit late, but it's usually pretty good.
Originally I was hesitant about Dr. Kerr as he replaced Dr. Neimanis who always went above and beyond and not only made you feel understood but also genuinely cared for. When dealing with superficial issues, Dr. Kerr can come across as dismissive. However, when the going gets tough and you require intensive care, Dr. Kerr is empathetic, compassionate and down to earth. He knows when someone needs answers beyond his scope of knowledge and follows through in making sure you are referred to the best specialists available. He is not inclined to prescribe opiods for pain and prefers to get to the root of the issue while making sure you are comfortable with the required medication. His support staff, mainly Deborah and Reena are friendly, efficient and eager to help. I have cried on the phone with Deborah more than once and she has never made me feel judged or to be a burden. She is always agreeable to send a fax or make a call on my behalf. I am grateful I have a physician and his support staff that I respect and trust. Dr. Neimanis did not fail in providing a worthy replacement.
Dr. Kerr is an amazing doctor. He's always punctual and explains everything when I have questions. He's been very helpful with adding his two cents as well in terms of what the options are and which one he feels is best. Would highly recommend!
Dr Kerr is my favourite doctor of all time. Personable, knowledgeable and professional. I have had so many appointments with him for both myself and my children that the last time I saw him, he remarked that it feels like I live there! My family has many widely varied health issues. Dr. Kerr takes the time to explain, help and provide resources to deal with all of our health concerns. He has never made me feel rushed or disregarded in any way. He is a kind, caring and compassionate doctor. I just love him and cannot say enough to express my thanks for the excellent care we receive in his office. His staff are exemplary. I have no complaints whatsoever. Two thumbs up, 5 stars and 10 out of 10!
Dr. Kerr is great. I never feel rushed at my appointments (which always happened with my old doctor), and you can tell he actually cares about his patients. If I've had something pressing, I've always been able to get a same-day appointment. I also feel very comfortable talking with him and his staff. In contrast to the reviewers below, I've never found Dr. Kerr to force medication as a band-aid solution to problems - he always talks through my options with me and discusses the rationale behind each, then lets me decide which route I'd like to take (though he of course offers his opinion on what he thinks is the best course of action, which as a doctor I'd hope he would do).
I have been very disappointed and upset about my personal experience with Dr. Kerr as a family physician. I am a young female health care professional, so I have knowledge about health care. I have found Dr. Kerr to be very pro medications as band-aid solutions for issues and not long term healthier ways of managing problems. Dr. Kerr is very dismissive of issues or concerns I have. He has even been inappropriate and rude in recent visits. Ex: The nurse practitioner and receptionist both told me I may need a possible biopsy for a potentially cancerous lesion. When I came in to see and explain my concerns, he basically told me it was all in my head and used my previous experience with anxiety against me. He was completely inappropriate and made me feel bad about even going to the visit (even though both the nurse practitioner and receptionist told me I potentially need a biopsy! Not in my head). He also seems very uncomfortable and not extremely knowledgeable about female reproduction and health. I had questions for him, about the potential of breast cancer side effects of hormonal birth control. And he once again dismissed this, stating that it was because I worked with cancer patients, that is the only reason why I have concerns about this. Even though I studied this in university and completed a research project on breast cancer's relation to hormonal birth control use. I am concerned for elderly patient or patients who are not very knowledgeable and could easily be dismissed. I am currently looking for another doctor.
Dr Kerr has for the most part been fantastic. Always ready to help, always gives the best knowledge he can. I find my only issue is that there have been times I have tried to see him, but he was always on vacation. I'll attribute this to my poor timing, though! He makes sure to stay on top of your health issues. He's helped me so much, especially with my mental health. Try to give us a heads up when you are going on vacation, and I won't have a single complaint! Highly recommend this doctor.
