I have been a patient for the past four years. I have always been treated professionally from the time I walk in the door until the time I leave. I believe they have the best staff of doctors and personnel in the area and I highly recommend them to anyone with vein and vascular problems.

Dreadful experience. Called for initial appt. in early July & couldn't see him til 8/2 was 10 minutes without any exam, just talking to Dr. Kerr & the bill was $375. He ordered an aorta & venous sonogram which were 2 more appointments with a follow-up for results. He stated I had leaky veins in front & back of legs and lasers could be used to "weld" them (EVLT). So, 9/22 Kerr's office & myself notified that insurance would cover. I tried times numerous calling, email, sending text messages without results, so I finally faxed & someone called my home to schedule on 10/26. Called the next day & left VM for "scheduler" who's VM said she'd call back in 24 hours. Tried again 2 days later with same results & sent email to her on 9/30. Nothing. On 11/2, I made an appointment with another Vascular Dr. who saw me the very next day & we are already progressing to getting my issues resolved.

I am very happy with the Vein and Vascular Institute of Tampa Bay. I was well treated by Dr. Kerr and found him encouraging, helpful, caring and informative. Other staff were equally as pleasant and concerned. I did not follow up with my treatments due to changing insurance, but plan to go back and continue. Highly recommended!

15 years ago, Dr. Kerr saved my life and I would definitely refer him and his clinic to anyone needing a vascular surgeon. He has also taken care of my varicose veins. He is a fabulous doctor and all the doctors at his clinic are fabulous as well. I am grateful!

I had EVLT done on both legs performed approximately six weeks apart. Once the procedure started it was a piece of cake! They played my favorite music and I almost fell asleep. I DID NOT experience any discomfort. Dr. Kerr explained at each point what he was going to do and how it was going to feel. He made everything go so smoothly and I'm so happy I had the procedure done...I feel so much better now.
