This is my first visit to this site. I have had a total of 8 surgeries over the past year and my surgeon has proven to be quite untrustworthy. This is Dr. Bruce Kerner. I live in central ohio. Can anyone recommened another Colorectal doctor in my area?

I am sorry to hear your frustration. Believe me I know where you are coming from. We had a dr. that I didn't trust and we changed and things are great since then (at least with our faith in the Dr).
You can go to www.webmd.com and on the far left side click find a physician and then search colon cancer and Ohio and there are 64 listed. I hope this helps and that you find a good doctor that you can feel comfortable with.
God Bless you and yours.

Ahoy there, Bengals...

If you are willing to shed the tiger stripes and enter into BROWNS territory there is always the Mayo Clinic in Cleveland.

I am glad to see that you are willing to fire a doctor that is not working for you. Always remember that doctors work FOR you as your health care ADVISOR. You pay them... not the other way around. Be sure to find one that works with you and allows you to be an integral part of your healthcare team.

Hi, fellow Buckeye! My oncologist is Dr. Taral Patel at St. Ann's Hospital in Westerville, OH. I trust him completely. My surgeon was also EXCELLENT, and his name is Dr. Marcus Miller, also with the Mount Carmel group. Good luck!
