Unique Doctor with extraordinary skills, very professional, kind, helpful and caring. My family is grateful to God that we had met that kind of Doctor! I recommend everybody who are hopelessly looking for help and tired from standard approaches and flat brains of neurologists-go to Dr. Kent and finally get the help you could not believe is exist...
