Dr Gent has always been patient and sympathetic. My daughter had ACL Surgery with him a few years ago and he was very good with her. I recently had shoulder surgery and He was very clear about my options. He spent the right amount of time listening to my concerns. I highly recommend

Worst bedside manner. Explains nothing. Rude & very cocky. He believes he is the best doctor that ever walked the planet & God forbid you question or disagree with his findings.
