Thumbs up for Dr. Cary Gentry. I have had 2 procedures this past year and he was an excellent doctor for me. The first, something I had put off for years, and thanks to his encouragement, I went through with it and the out come has been wonderful. The second, not so much a big deal, but done with a kind heart. I would recommend this doc to anyone. Thanks Dr. Gentry!!!

Dr. Gentry took me on as an emergency case (bowel obstruction); possible colon cancer. He scheduled me for surgery outside of his surgery schedule and removed everything he believed he needed to remove. After a drawn out recovery, I am beginning to feel amazingly better. I am sure with time and physical therapy, I will be in much better health than before...all due to Dr. Gentry...a miracle worker in my eyes!

This past year, I was fortunate enough to have Dr. Gentry as my surgeon on a colon surgery. His skills, knowledge, manner and caring well exceeded anything I could have reasonably expected. We'd all like to avoid such surgery if we can but if we cannot, there is simply no one better than Cary Gentry.

I was recently treated by Dr.Gentry and his staff at the Stoney Point Office, very nice and professional. Once Dr. Gentry completed his examination, he took the time to sit down and further explain in detail my medical situation and the steps to repair it. During and after my surgery the medical team kept me very comfortable and relaxed. The office personnel contacted me the very next day to see how I was feeling. I would recommend Dr. Gentry and his entire team, Thanks

I recently had a portion of my colon laparoscopically removed. The staff in the ICU were wonderful! They were knowledgable, gave me details, explained all procedures and worked as a team and a family. Everyone was so friendly and personable. Beyond the regular ICU staff was an army of specialists........cardiologist, anesthesiologist, pharmacologist, Dr. Gentry and even the head of nurses who were very involved in my recovery and wellness. Everything exceeded my expectations! Thanks to all.

I recently had to have a colonoscopy. I have an intense phobia of all things medical, but I had as good an experience that is probably possible for me. Dr. Gentry is a wonderful doctor, caring and competent; I have complete trust in him. His team was extraordinary and did everything they could to ensure my privacy and make me feel at ease. I have to thank Dianne in his office, and especially Sara Noble and Betsy Anton - the best! And Elizabeth and Megan were also wonderful.

I appreciate Dr Gentry's request to meet me prior to my routine colonoscopy so we could talk through any risks or concerns. The procedure was handled with ease and the staff were supportive and helpful. They talked through everything that was going to happen in a simple and thorough way.

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.

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.
