What People Say About Dr. Joel Kent, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Treated me with extraordinary skepticism during the two-plus years I saw him for chronic pain. I had the distinct impression he reads drug-seeking behavior into every patient interaction. Mercifully the source of my pain was eventually identified by another doctor (referred pain from a nearby tumor) and fixed surgically, because the situation was intolerable—intermittent and debilitating pain, insomnia, and the accompanying depression—and Kent had no apparent intention of exploring new or different treatments. If you have a serious pain issue seek help elsewhere.

Wouldn't look at my previous doctor reports and diagnosis for my hip pain. Kept telling me I had fibromyalgia instead of dealing with pain issues. Waste of time and money.
