Welcome to the site of Dr Stephen Kerr.

He is a family physician / general practitioner, while trained in London, has built a practice for ex-pats, tourists and study-abroad students here in Florence.

The 3pm to 5pm 'walk-in clinic' without an appointment is being replaced with appointment only until the Covid issue subsides.

To make an appointment:

To contact the doctor during office hours (9am-5pm M-F) phone the cell : +39 335 8361682 or send a WhatsApp to the same number (whatsapp is just checked during office hours) or send an email.

Out of office hours: best to send an email to kerr @ iol .it (without the spaces) and the doc will get back to you the next time he is in the office.

The office is located right in the historic centre of Florence just a few minutes walk north of the Ponte Vecchio and just south of Piazza Repubblica.
The official address is Piazza Mercato Nuovo 1 [studio medico del cinghiale].
The locals refer to this piazza as La Loggia del Porcellino. It has a small leather market and on the South side is the famous statue of the bronze boar. The office is on the East side of the square (there is also the ice-cream / chocolate shop Venchi with it's chocolate waterfall a few feet to the south of the entrance.
The map below shows the exact position on the piazza (east side of the square). However if you enter the address (rather than this website) into google maps it puts the marker onto the right (west) side of the square about 200ft away.

For routine phone calls, please phone between 8am and 6pm.
If possible, it is helpful if first-time patients arrive 10 minutes prior to their appt. time to complete some paperwork.
