The staff was super friendly and helpful.
The nurse was very thorough and definitely made one feel comfortable.
The doctor was pleasant and preformed my ear cleaning using state of the art equipment with no pain whatsoever. He gave me options of services his office provides. The doctor was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. The wall hanging on the wall was a great graphic to show percentages of likelihood of having a hearing loss.
Overall it was a great experience!!

If I could give Dr Stephen Dent 10 stars, I would. I had a chronic, painful sinus condition with unusual symptoms - I never had a sinus issue before - and Dr Dent nailed the diagnosis! He empowered me with valuable info so I could weigh my options and make the best decision about my treatment. The outcome was exactly what I hoped for…. sinus condition fully resolved. Dr Dent is not only an excellent doctor, but also very kind, compassionate and friendly. And he truly cares about his patients. Example: My first appt was at 4 on a Friday. After my exam, he wanted to do a certain test that day. The machines were all turned off and staff was getting ready to go home for the weekend (it was after 5). I offered to come back another time, but he really wanted to see something in my sinus right away that this test would show. His staff fired up the machine and the test was performed before I left his office that day. That’s just one example of his dedication to his patients and providing them the best care. Thank you Dr Dent!

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.

The office staff were friendly and efficient, and I only had to wait 10 minutes for my appt. Dr. Dent was so kind and took his time with my exam. He clearly explained his findings and all my options. I felt very cared for and I like that he prefers to start with the least invasive, more conservative treatment first. Thank you, Dr. Dent!

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.”
