I have known Dr Dent since April of 2016 when I was diagnosed with throat cancer. He and his team are amazing. He found the cancer and guided me through the treatments with my oncologist and helped save my life. I am now 6 years in remission and continue to have my follow up appointments with him. There are several side effects / collateral damage issues from the radiation and he has been instrumental in helping me deal with them. Very competent, listens to you and works to find the best options. Highly recommend.

I had a great experience in this office. The office staff is friendly and helpful and the wait was not long. They also are good about getting back to you on the phone or email. Caleb is very attentive and really listens to you and is very thorough. I feel I am in good hands. Thank you!

I was treated courteously and kindly throughout my whole experience. I had a minor procedure done in the office, and doctor and nurses treated me with sensitivity at all times to ensure my comfort. I wasn’t nervous at all!
Highly recommend for professionalism and “bedside manner.”

Friendly staff and informative, definitive diagnosis and treatment. I can’t overstate the level of excellence compared to many local medical practices. From booking to completing the visit and procedure it was seamless. Highly recommended.

Britney was very sweet. A great front fest person for this business. I had to wait a while before seeing Dr Sussman but happy I could get an appointment so quickly. The wait was worth it. He listened to what I had to say which is important to me. Should I ever have another Sinus issue I will certainly call this office.
