Dr. Kent was extremely adept at clarifying my husband's issues so that he had a very clear understanding of the symptoms. He spent plenty of time addressing the severe sleep apnea problems and planning a course of action to help him get on track to improve. An at-home sleep study will be scheduled. We feel like we have found an excellent physician that can truly improve my husband's quality of life.
