  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Five Stars

He's a Canadian doctor that gets to the point. I don't expect to pay him for humor and being courteous. He gets to the root of the problem and is very good in his prognosis is dead on before results to determine a diagnosis.

4 Star Office and Treatment

If you need a serious medical doctor and care Dr. Kent is your doctor. His staff is the best organized, totally professional, and is the most helpful. No matter if it is a chronic disease like Diabetes or a sudden hit with an aneurysm or even something weird like a fast moving infection streaming up your leg towards your heart...he loses no time and gets you the treatment you need. I agree with another reviewer here that I can not conceive this staff providing poor care. For about 20 years Dr. Kent was my physician and his staff truly cared for me and about me. He listened and he asked questions and he always always always asked me if there was anything else and if I had any other questions. He has a medical lab facility. If your goal is to live long and prosper then he is your doctor. He saved me a few times! One time it was Christmas and he diagnosed a critical condition and set up everything for a trip to Potomac Hospital which saved my life! And he did follow-up!

terrible

The staff is terrible, the wait time was two hours (seriously why do you have appointment times), and the doctor himself seemed disinterested in what was going on with me. Web MD is a better doctor than James Kent

Pack 'em in... make 'em wait

Dr. Kent has a volume business with a half dozen rooms for one doctor. You sit in the waiting room for 20 minutes to over an hour and then eventually get called to a room to wait another 15-30 minutes to actually see the doctor. Of course they have already collected your co-pay. His bedside manner is a lot like House except lacking the genius. He is smart but he assumes everyone else is a moron.If you just need a prescription, go here. It's a specialty.

Bad Doctor

The wait time is exceptionally long. He is only interested in taking your money. Doesn't care about you. Avoid him if possible. Staff is grumpy.
