Top Doctor
  • Dr. Kearse already did my left carpal tunnel surgery, I just went back and him do my right hand. This was a great experience even if it is surgery. Dr. Kearse is really an amazing surgeon and I highly recommend him if you need this done too.
  • The staff was very efficient and polite. I’ve been to these offices ( Burns Rd) frequently with my mother and friends as an escort for them. This was MY first true experience for ME. Dr Kearse was truly calming, smart, pleasant and he explained everything thoroughly and clearly. Nurses (yours truly) are usually difficult patients so I tried to cooperate. I knew I was going to need a painful injection and was warned by many friends about the discomfort caused by this injection but Dr Kearse instilled confidence and was very informative: a truly skillful smart professional! (it also didn’t hurt so terribly) Thank you!
  • I saw Dr. Kearse for an issue with my wrist. He was absolutely wonderful. Explained everything in detail so I understood the issue and the treatment. Plus.. very little wait time!! Highly recommend!
  • I could not be happier that I found Dr. Kearse. I had accidentally cut the tendon in my thumb and after seeing a surgeon in Boca Raton who refused to help me, I found Dr. Kearse. Not only was he helpful, he happily performed the surgery and now everything is perfect. He is very patient, answers all questions, thorough, timely and an expert in my opinion. I had limited surgery centers I could go through my insurance and Dr. Kearse kindly accommodated to my situation. His staff are also very professional and helpful. If you are close to one of his offices, I recommend you make sure to see him and you will not be disappointed.

  • Dr. Kearse was very kind and thorough. I have also seen other doctors at Palm Beach orthopedics and the staff from beginning to end was wonderful. I would recommend this practice as a A+++
  • Friendly and efficient staff. Was taken within 10 minutes of appointment time. Dr.Kearse explained what the X-ray of my shoulder showed and outlined three possible treatment options. I had come prepared for an injection into the shoulder joint, and since that was one of the options at this time, he did it.Didn’t feel a thing! Now let’s see what happens. My only complaint is that Dr.Kearse is a ‘Gator fan, and I’m a ‘Cane.
  • Dr. Kearse is one of the best physicians I have ever seen. He listens very carefully to the patients and spends lots of time explaining the situation.
  • Dr. Kearse is everything you could ask for in a doctor. He is kind, thoughtful, knowledgeable and skilled. During my appointments, he took the time to listen to me and address my concerns.

I'm pleased with the results of my surgery and the care I received, and would highly recommend Dr.Kearse!

  • A dear friend told me to get Dr. Kearse's opinion before making the decision about treatment for my wrist. I am so very pleased and thankful I did. I drove over an hour to my appointment.
