After arriving and filling out paperwork, I waited 45 minutes before asking how long the wait would continue to be. At that point I was brought into a room and waited about ten more minutes before a PA came in tospeak with me. While he was very nice, he seemed to be in an extreme rush and I didn't feel like I had his entire attention. I was sent for x-ray before seeing the Dr. I spent less than five minutes with the doctor. He was very kind and helpful. Dr. Lent was very kind and personally I would go to him again if I had an injury or concern. But based on the length of the wait I am not yet sure I would return in the future.

My first time ever having to see a Sports Doctor before for what I thought at the time was just a bone fracture. After a conversation with Dr. Lent he physically used some knee and leg movement techniques to checkup on my fracture. After a look at my X-rays he figure that the bone isn't his concern but you may have torn your ACL and only an MRI would be able to tell us the story. The conversation, The concern , The Planning, The knowledge in that order should be the reason why I enjoyed my visit. It's a small place but it's personal and they have a physical therapist there which is perfect for myself.

D Despite me being the last appointment and running 15 min late, Dr. Lent had a very positive interaction with me during my exam. He never rushed me out and listened to my questions providing me with specific medical explanations interms that enabled me to understand my leg condition.

He didn't speak to me for more than 1 minute before asking me to leave his office and walk over to the receptonist so that she could send me to physical therapy. He didn't listen to me, he just prescribed mewhat he prescribes everyone; physical therapy and an MRI (the MRI place which he has financial interest in). I have never been treated with such disregard. I was in so much pain and he offered absolutely nothing to help me. He literally spoke to me for 60 seconds and asked me not a single question. RUDE AND USELESS VISIT!

Doctor Lent was very thorough in evaluating my condition related to lower back pain. He provided medical explanation for everything and took time to listen to all my questions. Not only did he demonstrate some stretches that I could incorporateinto my daily routine to alleviate my back pain, he ask me to model it to him and provided me with feedback on my form. The office staff was very organized and I met with the doctor at my scheduled appointment time. I will definitely return to his practice.

Dr Lent was incredible. However, his office staff leaves much to be desired. My first impression was I want to run out of here. Front office rude and unpleasant. Thankfully, meeting the doctor made it all better. Dr. Lent is awesomenessin a physician. His bedside manner is outstanding and he is extremely knowledgeable in his field. His practice would be greatly improved if he had friendly people who knew what was going on working at reception.

Waited a long time because the xray technician was late. Dr. Lent did come in to keep me updated on his whereabouts. Other than that Dr. Lent was brief with me and seemed in a hurry to move on to the next patient.

Dr. Lent is probably a fine doctor, but his office staff and procedures are so awful it's not worth dealing with him. They won't have your online paperwork, they'll yell at you, and they certainly won't help you when you have a question.

Dr. Lent is very professional with excellent bedside manners. The procedures are very well organized with a minimum wait. Dr. Lent also explained advanced options for minimally invasive treatment. The staff works efficiently. A couple of patients were very demanding, hopefully the exception not the rule.
