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.

He removed my lymph node and left a huge huge hard knot which is 3 times larger than before he touched it. Lymph node was benign. Went to see him to fix this problem and he refuses. He actually laughed at me and told me to just go enjoy my life that he was not fixing his problem. He is a terrible doctor with a very bad attitude when he makes a mistake.

I had gastric sleeve done by Dr Kent. At the time, I had TNCare (Tennessee Medicaid) and he was the only dr that was affiliated with any hospital that both took Medicaid.. A week after the surgery, I had a huge cyst in the lining of my stomach. I had to have surgery and almost died. My "banana" sized stomach was expanded. I would run as fast as you can. There are a lot of negative review online for him. I am sure this is why he is apparently in FL now. I would not let my worst enemy be butchered by this man.
