“I couldn’t ask for a better doctor than Dr. Boyce. The whole GLOC team was fast, professional, and gave me easy-to-understand explanations. My physical therapist said I could be a poster child for knee replacement surgery.”

Lynn Robison

Traverse City, Michigan

“I went to Dr. Brian Kerr when I was having trouble with my right shoulder and he gave me several options to alleviate the pain. Following rotator cuff surgery he coordinated my physical therapy with GLOC Physical Therapist Lynne Lombard who was key to my recovery. Also helpful were the guidelines Dr. Kerr gave me which addressed what I could and could not do with my right arm before and after surgery. I strongly recommend Dr. Kerr and the entire team of specialists at GLOC to anyone experiencing shoulder difficulties.”
