Dr. Kent's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kent "Dr. Kent grew up in southeastern Michigan and was the fourth of six daughters. After earning her medical degree from Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, MI, Dr. Kent completed her Internship and Residency at the prestigious Mayo Graduate School of Medicine in Rochester, MN. She also spent a summer externship in Hematology/Oncology at the highly-respected Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, MA. Dr. Kent was then awarded a Fellowship in Hematology / Oncology at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI. Upon completion of her training, she began her private oncology practice at the Kansas City Cancer Center and later practiced at the Freeman Cancer Institute in Joplin, MO, where she served for two years as Medical Director before moving to Florida with her family in 2013. She has continued to practice oncology and hematology in Clay County since then. She enjoys educating and interacting with residents as a member of the teaching faculty for the Orange Park Medical Center. Dr. Kent is also currently the Chief of the Department of Medicine at St. Vincent's Hospital Clay County, and Cancer Liaison for the Commission on Cancer at Orange Park Medical Center.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kent "Practicing oncology has been a lifelong passion for Dr. Kent. To her, cancer care is not about the disease, but is about the person who has it. "While a patient is sent to us for a specific diagnosis, they come to us with a life. They have families, jobs, bills, upcoming graduations or retirements, and simply selecting treatment A from a list is not enough. I believe the most important part of my job is to get to know the person, their priorities and goals, and help them live their life despite cancer, rather than being a 'cancer patient.'""

DR. KENT IS A FABULOUS CARING DOCTOR. I AM SO SAD TO SEE THAT SHE HAS LEFT HER FLEMING ISLAND PRACTICE. I WISH HER WELL IN HER NEW ENDEAVORS.. MICKEY BELL

Dr. Kent is totally 5 stars. I was beyond crushed when she announced her leaving to go to Jacksonville. I've had 4 oncologists and she is by far the best in every respect. So bright and personable and takes the time to make sure your questions are answered. If you or anyone you know needs a cancer doc, you can go to he with total confidence. She's the best. If my condition would worsen I'd give serious thought to going to her current office for consultation and treatment.

Dr. Kent is caring and makes me feel like I am her only patient. She speaks to me like a regular person and I feel like she listens to what I have to say. I am grateful to be in her care.
