Dr. Kent's Care Philosophy

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.
