Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kent "The patient's orthopedic needs are my primary concern, and anything my office or I can do to facilitate in the care of patients is always our first priority.

I am committed to the same quality care today that I was when I began my surgical practice in Fort Worth in 1981. I still have a "live" person who answers my phone. The excellent care of patients is still my personal goal. "
