15/06/13 4 4 1 2 We forwarded a CT scan CD to Dr. Dent's office a few days before our arrival there. The scan showed where her lung cancer had spread from a small area to encompass both lungs and the liver. Seeing that she had the cancer in the lung, Dr. Dent was not too interested in talking to us. He gave her a cursory examination then mistakenly attributed much of her chronic cough to GERD and prescribed a proton pump inhibiter. He prescribed another inhaler and said he would see us in two months. He returned the CT scan CD with the report and sent us on our way. Dr. Dent's demeanor was not good for us. He seemed distant and irritated. But he just didn't seem to want anything to do with us. That's something our family really didn't need with my wife's condition. Perhaps he had had a bad day. I advised his office by phone a few days later that we'll seek someone else for her lung needs.

04/01/10 5 5 5 5 His concern and knowledge were so comforting. We were kept up-to-date quickly on all tests and reports. He was never rushed, nor appeared to make us feel we were taking too much of his time.

29/08/09 5 5 5 5 The finest Dr. I have ever had! There is no waiting to see him, you don't even have to sign in the office knows you when you enter. You are always seen in just a very few minutes. He is very knowledgeable and helpful. He always has time to answer any question you may have. We would trust him in any given situation. It would be so wonderful if all Dr's would be as considerate as he is!
