Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

This physician never had any intention of helping me or listening to me. He thinks every patient with serious issues causing unbearable pain are drug seeking. He is not compassionate in the least. Do not waste your time or money like I did. You’ll be sorely disappointed.

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.
