Dr. Kent was very personable and engaged with me as a patient. He was very interested in what I was telling him about my symptoms. Often I have doctors who seem distracted while I am talking. I very much appreciated how engage Dr. Kent was and how much he wanted to clearly understand the symptoms that I was describing to him. He also very clearly explained everything he was going during the exam, and what I would experience while he was doing it.

Dr. Kent is one of the best physicians I have come across in years! This coming from someone who has worked in the medical field for quite some time. He is very knowledgeable but also very approachable. I have already recommended him since my visit.
