I am 62 years old and have been putting off a colonoscopy for a long long time because of the stories of the prep from my mother and grandmother. I met with Dr. Gentry And he made me feel very comfortable. He prescribed a prepopik prep, and assured me it was simple I was still skeptic. I just completed the procedure on August 24, 2016, and I cannot tell you how well this prep kit worked. Everything he said was true, simple, the taste was like drinking lemonaid.. Dr Gentry was beyond great.

Very thorough follow up visit and exam to surgery performed by Dr. O'Donovan originally. Exam done in a timely fashion, and all questions were answered.

Dr. Gentry is hands down the best there is. He is supremely skilled, but on top of that, is one of the most genuine, caring and compassionate people I have ever met. Most surgeons are not noted for their people skills. Dr. Gentry is quite different. If he could expand his practice to cover everything, I would go to him for everything. Just seeing him, or talking with him brightens my day.

Dr. Gentry and his entire staff are knowledgeable, perform with ease and confidence and treat everyone with great respect. I've had four or five procedures there and recommend his office and him to everyone I know.

Dr. Gentry and his staff have been extremely helpful and caring while I have been a patient with him. He did a total colectomy with ileostomy for me at the end of December and I do not think that it could have gone any more perfectly. His care for his patients goes above and beyond and it shows with his work.

Very knowledgable about my condition by performing his own evaluation to add to records he received from others. Excellent surgeon. Incision healed rapidly with minimal discomfort Seems to care about whole person and their family
