He’s a really sweet doctor that’s incredibly easy to talk to. I usually get nervous when I go to the doctor, but his personality put me at ease. He actually listened to my symptoms and believed what I had to say (I have had doctors in the past that wouldn’t take in my opinion into consideration). I 110% recommend him to everyone!

Dr. Kerlan is an old-school doctor, in the best way. He makes sure you understand what's going on, and is interested in the patient as a whole person rather than a list of symptoms. Highly recommended. Also excellent office, excellent staff.
