I appreciate Dr. Dentsman's dedication to his patients. He makes you feel like you are a valued patient and cares about your concerns. I would and have, highly recommended him to others. Thanks so much Dr. Dentsman! Janice

His knowledge was the most reassuring reason for seeing him. He always made sure I understood the procedures, and his follow-up was exemplary. Don't expect anything more than a dry sense of humor, but do expect the best outcome.

Dr. Denstman has saved my life more than once. I would trust him again without thinking for a second. While his bedside manor is gruff, it's a very easy exchange for his knowledge and expertise. I have been his patient for too many years and am actually beginning to understand his sense of humor. Inside the tough guy, there is a gentle soul- find it. Please understand, he can't afford to become emotionally invested with everyone - he would lose his mind from grief. He is terrific.

Dr Denstman may not have the warmest bedside manner but he gets straight to the point. He calls 'em exactly as he see 'em. He made repairs to my plumbing after I had a very bad experience with an operation at a leading East coast hospital. He said exactly what he could do and did it saving me three additional months of pain and inconvenience. My colonoscopies have been done with absolutely no pain or side effects.
