This is my 2nd colonoscopy done by Dr. Gentry @ Stony Point. Excellent facility, very well organized staff. Apr 2019
My experience was much more pleasant than my colonoscopy 3 years prior. Much easier to discuss any problems with Dr. Gentry. The preparation was more pleasant and easy to follow. The facility and his staff were very helpful and pleasant, as well as efficient at their job. The whole staff made you feel comfortable. Gail L Apr 2019
Everything went smoothly. The nurses were comforting and reassuring. Actually, they and Dr. Gentry made this experience (one that I did not relish) a fun experience. Thank you all! Sandra L Apr 2019
I have a terrific doctor who is open and honest in answering my questions and relieving my fears.I appreciate him fitting me into his schedule at the last minute. I would highly recommend Dr.Gentry, one skilled surgeon with an awesome bedside manner! Please recognize Dine, Dr.Gentry’s nurse. M. S. Nov 2018
Dr. Gentry is a 5-star doctor. He is kind, gentle and extremely knowledgeable. Dr. Marco Torrono, the anesthesiologist, was wonderful, as well. I felt very secure and knew what to expect. Let's face it - a colonoscopy is not exactly my choice of a fun Thurs. afternoon but the doctors, nurses and staff made it A-OK! I did not meet one staff person that wasn't competent and delightful! Thank you so much for such a positive experience. The follow up call the next am was very nice, too. Mary E. Jan 2018
