Dr. Kerrison is fantastic. I have been a regular patient of his since 2017. Both of my eyes are damaged, one unlikely to recover full vision and the other with some pesky problems of its own. Having dealt with many doctors, I find that Dr. Kerrison is clearly the most intelligent, thoughtful and caring of all. He is obviously quite knowledgeable about my situation and clear in his explanations, as well as patient with my questions. He is extremely careful in his treatments and makes my options and risks very clear, helping me avoid a procedure that has risk that I don't wish to take. It is obvious that his concern for my overall well-being exceeds his zeal for surgery. I have every confidence in his knowledge and advice. In addition, his staff are well-trained, personable and efficient. Without reservation, I highly recommend Dr. Kerrison.
