John P. Epperson, Jr., MD
Dr. Kerr and the staff at Silk Touch Medical Aesthetics are pleased to introduce our new partner, John P. Epperson, Jr., MD. Dr. Epperson has been working in our practice alongside Dr. Kerr for the past nine months. He brings a wide base knowledge and experience in the fields of surgery, emergency medicine, and primary care and has been working as an ER physician in the Treasure Valley for the past 9 years. He is double board certified and received post-graduate residency training in the following areas:
- General Surgical Internship, Orlando Florida Regional Medical Center
- Orthopaedic Surgery Residency, Orlando, Florida Regional Medical Center
- Family Practice Residency, Cedar Rapids Medical Education Foundation, Iowa
- Emergency Medicine Residency, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics
He has a love for surgery and was thrilled at the chance to do aesthetic procedures such as liposuction and dermal fillers under the training and guidance of Dr. Kerr. Dr. Epperson has readily adopted Dr. Kerr’s artistic approach to awake liposuction with an emphasis on safety, gentleness, finesse and optimal results.
“Dr. Epperson is a gifted body sculptor and talented injector who is passionate about helping his patients achieve their aesthetic goals.” –Dr.Kerr
In addition to training under Dr. Kerr, he received liposuction training by the ”father of modern Liposuction” Dr. Jeffrey A. Klein MD. Dr. Klein developed and championed the Tumescent Technique for Liposuction which is used worldwide today.
Dr. Epperson felt like the right fit from the very start. Along with his broad medical knowledge and experience, he was recruited specifically for his wonderful bedside manner. It is possible to train a person in medical technique and even develop their artistic talents but, simply put, you cannot teach a person how to be NICE. Dr.Epperson has a warm and gregarious personality. He is a patient listener and an empathetic caregiver. He is loved by our staff and the perfect complement to our practice.In keeping with our tradition of bringing you cutting edge medicine, we have introduced the following procedures which Dr. Epperson has been trained for and performed over the past several months.
