I love Dr. Dent. He's kind, respectful, patient, non-judgmental, and knowledgeable.

Dr. Dent makes eye contact instead of keeping his nose stuck in a file... Read More

I am a returning patient to Dr Stephen Dent and I am as impressed today as I was last year . He addressed my concerns, and after examining the area of concern I feel reassured. The staff is very pleasant and welcoming. It is a very nice comfortable office. Dr Dent was recommended by my family physician whom I have the highest regard and trust, I would also recommend Dr Dent to family and friends.

Received very excellent service from them today. Everyone was helpful and friendly, they got me in a bit early and were very thorough, did a good job explaining everything. I saw Kristen and I could tell she LOVED her job and using her medical knowledge, Highly recommend.

My visit was very informative. The PA Morh took her time with me and after telling her I have MS wasn’t quick to say it’s your MS causing the issue. This was my first visit so my experience was great. I had a lot of wax in my ear so she extracted it so she could clearly see. I would definitely recommend and if you get the PA she is very knowledgeable.

I have been seeing Dr Dent for several years and he is wonderful. Very calm, pays attention to you and always has a lot of information. The last time that I went, however, I saw Kristen Mohr, his PA. She was amazing! She was so kind, efficient and helpful. She really did a great job!

Wonderful experience at San Diego Ear Nose and Throat Specialists! I saw their PA, Kristin and she was wonderful! She did such a good job explaining everything to me. She validated my concerns and eased my anxiety. Thank you so much for all of your help!
