    Patient | November 4, 2019
  • My experience with Dr. Kent was one of the most favorable I have ever had with a physician. He apologized for a late arrival, which respected my time. He then began by making sure he understood me, and, as the visit progressed, made sure that I understood everything he found and the possibilities going forward. He not only answered my questions with clarity, but as a result of everything proceeding, I felt I understood things well enough to actually ask intelligent questions. Based on this initial visit, my mind is much more at ease and I am optimistic of a long-term solution to my health issues.
