Back away from this doctor
Wait time

I went to this doctor for chronic congestion. He prescribed Prednisone, which is basically the nuclear option, without ever trying anything less drastic. Aside from telling me it would give me "energy", he failed to inform me of any of its many, many side effects. He also failed to put in a tapering-off strategy, and I ended up in the emergency room for acute (and very painful) Prednisone withdrawal. He ignored me when I told him I'm a cancer survivor with a compromised immune system, and didn't listen when I told him - twice - that I'm hypersensitive to all medications. In short, Barry Kent appears to be a doctor who has been in practice for too long, and is now just mailing it in. If he can't listen to his patients, or manage their expectations, or take even a somewhat methodical approach to their treatment before putting them on powerful steroids or other drugs, then he needs to end his practice now.

Dr. Kent was fantastic during my first appointment today, as well as his office staff. I had to have the camera to check my throat, he and his assistant, Maria were just amazing through the whole uncomfortable test. Afterwards, he took me into his office and spent personal 1 on 1 time with me to explain my diagnosis.

Especially a good experience when the doctor wanted to verify a sensitive issue, he called my insurance company to pre-qualify for an MRI of the Adenoid area. Wanted to be 100% sure of the diagnosis. Spent time on the phone conferring with the radiologist. Excellent approach to diagnostics.
