Making an appointment was effortless, had options for same and next day with the Dr for a new patient.

Staff were so nice when I checked it. They still had clean and dirty pens separate which I appreciated.

Entire office was nice and clean. Tech seemed advanced from what I could tell.

Once in with the doctor I felt like all of my questions were answered and felt confident in the treatment. And this was for a fairly complex issue I’ve been dealing with for a while. Overall, great experience! Thank you so much for making healthcare not a nightmare.

Dr Dent is amazing. I've been blessed having him treat me including a number of procedures which yielded positive results. His approach is systematic as he asks questions to best understand the issue at hand. We are so fortunate to have him practicing in our community

Dr Date and his staff were delightful. I really appreciated that his office was so efficient in terms of diagnosing my sinus issues. I was easily able to schedule my surgery, which went extremely well. I would recommend his group to anyone!

Dr. Dent, and his PA Kristen, are incredibly knowledgeable and professional. Dr. Dent stays current with technology and new medications and Kristen is so bright and will share a wealth of information on anything in her profession. They have treated me for sinus, allergy and thyroid issues and hearing loss. The audiologist, Linda, fitted me for a hearing aid which I was a little embarrassed about because I’m only 51. She worked with me patiently to find the right settings on the hearing aid and explained the science behind how the aids work. The office is filled with health care providers and staff who care and are eager to help answer questions and go above and beyond. I had a biopsy in his office today and he explained the process thoroughly and was extremely gentle. Lilly was assisting him during the procedure and they communicated well and had mutual respect for each other. Dr. Dent is a very smart and thoughtful doctor with a great bedside manner and you can be confident you are in capable hands in this office. I highly recommend San Diego ENT.

The office was very accommodating in getting me in fast. Kristen, the PA, is incredible. She’s very knowledgeable about Ménière’s and all things ears. They use the micro vacuum to clean out ear wax, not the more invasive water treatment. I highly recommend them!
