Been seeing him since diagnosed in 1992. Very personable and always able to answer my questions. Been in remission since 2004 with very little Chrones related issues.

Can’t begin to say how much I appreciate Dr Gentry. He takes whatever time is needed to make sure you understand. I find him to be a gentle and caring person. Karen, his nurse, is always available, is extremely knowledgeable, also very kind and caring. I consider her one of my best friends. I have been seeing this team for many years and would highly recommend them.

My PCP referred me to Dr. Gentry about 25 years ago (turned out to be Crohn's disease), later I developed GERD and dysphagia, most recently an atrophied pancreas. Dr. Gentry has helped me keep my GI system in quite good condition throughout all those years. His staff (most especially Nurse Karen and phone nurse Phyllis) are the most fully responsive and caring people I've encountered from ANY of my MANY providers, can't say enough good things about them!! They all listen, care, and respond!!

Dr Gentry has been my specialist for several years now. He was called in to see me when my doctor was on vacation and I liked him immediately. He's friendly, a straight shooter and has a sense of humor. I would definitely recommend Dr. Gentry.

I found Dr Gentry online after researching several Gastro doctors and that Dr Gentry is highly rated. I called for an appointment but was denied because I had seen another physician at that practice 7 years ago. I only saw him once and didn't care to see him again. My husband and I have had colonoscopies at another doctor in Arlington but he no longer takes our insurance. This is no way to treat someone needing his services. Highly disappointed. dr gentry denied my special requ
