Verified Patient Reviews
She was wonderful, informative and quick. Definitely going back!
She was kind, gentle and informative. I'm happy to have her as my OBGYN.
Though I had a very long wait time during my first appointment at the office, during my second visit I was seen right away. So this leads me to believe that the lateness last time was simply the result of ensuring care for another patient. So just know that if you're left to wait, it's most likely for good reason. I definitely made the right decision in seeing Dr. Gentry. She is extremely intelligent, professional, and has a great bedside manor. I was terrified about my procedure but Dr. Gentry was calm, clear, not awkward, and quick! I must be critical of one aspect of my visit though. Perhaps because of the popularity of the office, I've found record keeping to be very unorganized. I've updated moving information etc online...but this information did not get passed along to the office staff to update my records..which ended up being a big problem for me. Hopefully they figure out this discrepancy soon.
Her office is always accommodating. I truly appreciate them. I am a conundrum kind of patient, but they are extremely understanding.
I felt confident in her knowledge of PCOS and was very understanding how important it has been for me to be able to re-monitor my condition.
She's the best. Super friendly and super compassionate.
I have been to Dr. Gentry before when she performed a hysterectomy on me. She gave me excellent care. And at that time she was training other surgeons to use robotic surgery.( I remember that she explained to me that I didn't need robotic surgery, which is used in complicated cases, and I was relieved to be told mine was not complicated.) On today's visit she was her usual professional self. She explained my options very clearly and lost no time in trying out one option. I was glad I had taken the initiative in seeking her out, instead of waiting for my GP to refer me.
I felt very confident with the way she expressed her knowledge of women carrying PCOS. It reassured me that I was able to find a doctor that was about assisting me in continuing to monitor my progress with this condition.
I feel I'm in good hands with Dr. Gentry. She puts me at ease and is patient about explaining health issues. She is very professional.
Dr Gentry was kind and seemed very knowledgeable. She is friendly while remaining professional. I am not dissatisfied..
Dr. Gentry was so kind, very knowledgable, and a clear & pleasant communicator. The online patient portal provide by her office is fabulous! Very convenient, and makes me feel connected and up-to-date. I am pleased to say I found my log-term, go-to OB-Gyn. I highly recommend Dr Gentry.
Dr Gentry truly GETS IT! She was very knowledgeable and compassionate. I will continue with her for a very long time.
Dr. Gentry is very professional and kind, as well as informative. It was my first appointment at the office and she was sure to explain everything in detail so as to not surprise me. Though the wait was frustratingly long, I would come again given her excellent service.
I've claimed Dr. Gentry as my OB?GYN for over 5 years now. Loved her then, love her now!
I enjoy see Dr. Gentry. She allows her human self to be present during the visit. Dr. Gentry is professional and I trust her medical assecements and recommendations. She is a great doctor that has a great interest in helping women navigate our changing bodies.
Dr. Gentry was incredibly thorough and had a wonderful bedside manner. I did have to wait a while both in the waiting room and in the exam room. But it was worth it after my visit with her. I never felt rushed and she made sure to answer all of my questions thoughtfully and completely.
Excellent visit once with the doctor. The wait time is generally very long. Today is was 40 min.
She is professional and personable. She is knowledgeable and thorough.
Thorough, efficient and friendly. Glad I found them.
I would definitely recommend her to my friends.
She's amazing and a traditional doctor. This isn't a Kaiser 10 min. experience. She takes the time to discuss your concerns, addresses your needs, and is genuinely a caring, concerned, authentic person with a depth of knowledge about new research findings in the field of women's reproductive health. She's also skilled and brilliant surgeon.
She's friendly and didn't feel too clinical. Gave me honest advice and answers to my questions. Very impressed.
Great quality provider
She's really personable and extremely thorough.
My visit was great! I have always been a little concerned when visiting an OBGYN. But, Dr. Gentry is gentle and easy to talk to about my concerns. She is also proactive when it comes to your health.
Excellent diagnosis of abdominal pain as Non-Gynecologicial. She is simply "The Best"!
Everything went great. She takes time, listens to me and answers all my questions. I love my doctor!
1) I was moved to "room" within 15 minutes of my appointment time. It was great. The ladies at the reception area were very pleasant and friendly; and also alert for incoming patients who arrived. Answered my question regarding co-payment. Emily, who placed me in the room, also friend and cordial. All in all, a vase improvement!
I thought Dr. Gentry was great. I was expecting to have to wait far longer than I did, so I grateful to get in and out in a reasonable timeframe. She listened and she was thorough in her suggestions and evaluation. I would have liked her to delve more into my family and health history to uncover issues I might not have thought impt to raise, but she did address my short list of questions very well. I am grateful. The nurse or practitioner who took my vitals, however, was terrible!. She was obviously having a bad day because her mood was foul, she was curt, and visibly annoyed. I didn't think it was directed at me as the patient, but given this was my first visit, I was reluctant to ask her questions or do anything to be on the receiving end of her funk. Not sure what was going on, and we all have challenging days, but her inability to put on her game face/demeanor for the patient demonstrated a lack of professional maturity. When researching Dr. Gentry as a GYN, I noticed similar comments about the staff from others on independent reviews, so it might be an issue worth addressing. Overall, I am happy with my experience and would refer Dr. Gentry to others if asked. Please note: You may use my name in this review for the purpose of the doctor herself. You may not use my name for public use on the website or any other medium.
very kind and patient! Answered by questions.
Dr Gentry is so awesome, I don't even care than I often have to wait over an hr. She's thorough and makes sure the job is done right and that all your needs are taken care of.
She is a sensitive intelligent professional.
It was great. Quick, but efficient.
I love Dr. Gentry she always makes me feel so comfortable and answers my questions no matter how silly they are. The wait could be considered long but it has improved so much since the last time I was in to office. I was amazed! Overall I could not be happier with my recent experience
She is very professional and friendly, answered all my questions and explain to me every procedure. I definitely recommend her.
She's fantastic! I knew she would be thorough and honest, and that's why I went to her as soon as I suspected I might have a problem. She not only got to the heart of the problem but was reassuring as well. I consider myself very fortunate to have been referred to her.
I had a wonderful experience. Some people have mentioned their wait time was bad, but I didn't have an issue. I arrived 15 mins as I was supposed to, and I went in before I finished filling out paperwork. I got changed and had just enough time to finish the documents before Dr. Gentry walked in. I have no complaints.
I love the doctor, but after so many years, I think the office has lost the personal touch.
Dr. Gentry is an excellent doctor and surgeon. I highly recommend her. She is knowledgeable,warm and caring. She is a great physician!!!
My visit with Dr. Gentry was fine, it was just the long wait for the doctor to come in. My appointment was at 3:15, I was put in a room at 3:25 but the doctor didnt come in until 4:00.
Dr. Gentry is always great and knowledgeable. She's definitely worth the wait!
Very personable and professional!
Cool & Calming
Dr. Gentry is friendly, knowledgeable, and best of all, efficient. Great for someone like me with a busy schedule. She performed a thorough breast exam and pap smear, and I was comfortable the whole time. Wait time in the waiting room was not bad, either (10-15 min)
She was friendly. I didn't feel rushed. She answered my questions which put me at ease. I highly recommend her.
