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.

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.'""
