Dr. Kerr was born and raised in The Golden Triangle, the heart of Southeast Texas. That probably explains why he is such a big Astros and Aggies fan!
He received his undergraduate education at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. He attended Texas Chiropractic College in Pasadena, Texas, where he graduated in December, 1985. After completing his State Board Exam and receiving his license, he interned with Dr. Richard Brassard in Port Arthur, Texas before starting his own practice in July of 1988 in the same office he interned at. In April of 1995, he moved his practice from Gulfway Drive to his new office at 2401 Jefferson Drive, across the street from Memorial Stadium and next door to Sherwin Williams.
Dr. Kerr has received post-graduate certifications in physiological therapeutics, impairment rating, and radiology. He is also certified in Manipulation Under Anesthesia. He works closely with several area schools taking care of many athletes including runners, basketball and baseball players, and of course football players! Dr. Kerr is a past member of the North Port Arthur Rotary Club, and is a Paul Harris Fellow Award recipient. He has been active in many area charitable organizations including the American Heart Association and Young Life. He has held many offices in the Texas Chiropractic Association, including all District Offices and served on the State Board. He is currently the chairman of the Ethics Committee.
Doctor Kerr loves his community and his job. 'I think the Golden Triangle is a great place to work and live…there is so much to do, and we have such great weather. I like the colored leaves and cool fall weather up north, but I don't like the snow (except for skiing!). I love having the opportunity to care for such nice people, and working with our staff is really great fun! I can't think of anything I'd rather be doing!'
He and his wife, Shelly, have three sons, Damon, Christian and John Paul.
