Patient Comments (2)
in Charleston, SC |
Dr. Kent is the best ophthalmologist in Charleston. He has great expertise in examination, diagnosis, treatment, and surgery; he is patient and clear in his explanations and responses to questions. He is a truly caring physician. If only there were more like him in general medicine and in other specialties!

Dr. Kent is solving my problem after I struggled with it with years under other doctors' care, so I'm happy. He is very concerned about the cost of drugs too and doesn't rush into surgery. I have anxiety about eye exams, but he is very professional and puts me at ease. His nurse and one particular staff person can be a bit brusk and not overly helpful, but he is the reason to make an appointment, so just ignore them. The other staff members are just fine.
