Dr. Dent was my doctor when I was first diagnosed with JA when I was 2, he was fantastic. I can even remember playing games with him (pretending I wasn't there and then jumping out from behind the bed to scare him). He helped me a lot with getting me more functional in my daily life.
I saw him when I was around the age of 12 for chronic and severe joint pain that my GP had been unable to diagnose. He proceeded to tell my father and I that there was absolutely nothing wrong with me and that I had been making it all up for attention. After seeing another doctor I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. Needless to say I would not recommend Dr. Dent to anyone, especially not to a child as that experience was terrible.
I am very thankful to have my daughter under Dr. Dent's care. We have been with him for the last 2 1/2 years. He is very thorough, always includes her in the discussion, and is very up front about everything. We have to drive over three hours one way for our visits, and we were offered the option to change to the new Pediatric Rheumatologist that started in London, which would cut our commute by over an hour and we turned it down. We feel we have the best doctor caring for our daughter. Thank you Dr. Dent!
I was fortunate enough to be seen under Dr. Dents care throughout my late childhood and teenage years. Because of him, I am now living a completely 'functional' and 'normal' life that at one point I never thought possible. To him, I owe my greatest thanks.
He is a horrible doctor , he made my 16 year old cry and ur interfeering with her care and treatment ! Do you like to see her in pain!!!!!!!!! Thumbs down, ur dealing with children you cannot treat children like that especially stepping on someone elses diagnosis and because ur ego is so big that you didn't find the diagnosis you tell her and her doctors there's nothing wrong with her
Dr. Dent has been my daughter's doctor for over 4 years now and she loves him. He is very thorough and when he is unsure, will get a second opinion. He always treats her with respect and includes her with all of the discussions regarding her care. We think is assistant Jan is tops as well!!
