Dr Kerr is a wonderful and caring doctor.

Dr. Kerr is wonderful. I never feel rushed during my appointments. She always explains everything and answers all of my questions. She also seems to know the latest studies in medicine, which is nice to know she keeps up with current practices. I even brought my 17 year old daughter to her, and Dr. Kerr made her feel so comfortable during her visit as well. I hope to have Dr. Kerr as my Doctor for a very long time.

Dr. Kerr is wonderful. She takes great care of me. She spends enough time developing rapport but also gets to the point and listens to my concerns. I am extremely happy with her service and thankful that she has been able to be my OB/GYN.

Terrific experience. This was my first visit with a new provider as my previous provider is no longer with the practice.

Dr. Kerr is new OBGYN for me ***. Appointment took 50 minutes, 15 minutes with doctor. I did not get feeling she had reviewed my medical history prior to appointment. She asked if I had any concerns (did not). Perhaps my expectations for longer first visit to get to know each other were not reasonable.

She was very easy to talk to and is a very good listener

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.

As of December 31, 2016, Lauren Kerr did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
