Dr. Peter D Kent has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

I have seen Dr. Kent four times. I have never waited longer than five minutes in the waiting room and 10 min in his office. His staff is always very friendly. Dr. Kent is very thorough in his explanation, he takes time to listen to my concerns and answers all my questions. I never feel rushed and his bedside manor is superb.
Dr. Kent is fabulous! He is the first doctor that I have met with who really is concerned about me. His professionalism and 'bed side manner' is second to none. Dr. Kent always speaks to me in lay terms and will even draw diagrams if I am having difficulty in understanding what he is saying or what I am suppose to do. I have been seeing him for about 2 years now and I always feel better and more comfortable about my RA when I leave his office. He is always willing to listen and gives me the time that I need.
