I am a 55 year old female that raises a small child between change of life and having my colon removed Months before meeting Dr Kent I had ran out of hope. She was kind and very knowledgeable. She started with a physical and complete blood screening. She has given me my life back. It wasn't an over night fix but rather a journey we've both signed up for trying to work all the kinks out. I love my Dr and her staff...they really care.

Dr. can't treat you like family. She is on top of any issues you speak to her about. Without hesitation she refers you to the specialist you need. In fact her staff calls the specialist office for your appointment . Dr. Kent, is has the best bedside manner of any doctor I have ever had and I am 69. Her staff is great. I have recommended Dr Kent to anyone and everyone who needs a primary care doctor.

Office staff cold, unprepared and short with answer and service. Bedside manner of Dr. Kent cannot make up for her rude husband lurking around the office. Extremely proud of themselves at this office and they will let you know just how lucky you are to be allowed to be seen.

can not say anything bad about Dr Kent or her staff. they have always been very nice to my wife and me. Even though we no longer live in Ellijay, I would still recommend Dr Kent to any one needing a family Doctor.

Dr Kent is great but her staff is lacking. I feel the nurses schedule too many appointments. I waited for over and hour after my appointment time and had to leave twice because I wasn't seen. Worse I had had nothing to eat or drink either time because they were supposed to draw my blood. Obviously upset this second time I left the nurses were rude and combative. I'll be finding a new primary dr.
