Dr. Kent is an incredibly gifted neurologist. His knowledge is remarkable and his clear delivery when explaining difficult medical concepts is greatly appreciated by myself and my family members. His bedside manner is top-notch. He is incredibly patient and does not at all make me or my family members feel rushed. He is genuinely caring and compassionate. He has made my transition to a difficult and unexpected diagnosis smooth and manageable. I would recommend him to anyone in need.

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...
