Gregory J. Kent, M.D., has been practicing in the Treasure Valley since 1991. He received his undergraduate degree from Pennsylvania State University in 1982, and then went on to earn his doctorate from Temple University Medical School. Upon completion of medical school, Dr. Kent accepted an internship with Allentown Affiliated Hospitals in Allentown, Pa. Following this internship, he completed his ophthalmology training in 1990 at St. Vincent’s Regional Medical Center in New York City.
Dr. Kent has developed a well established and broad-based practice serving a patient base from Mountain Home to Ontario, with two conveniently located offices. He has earned the reputation of a talented and compassionate surgeon, specializing in refractive and cataract surgery. His caring and knowledgeable staff adds another level of patient confidence that is becoming almost impossible to find in today’s changing world of medicine.
After enjoying the success of his own refractive procedure, Dr. Kent began his refractive program in 1999. Since then, he has completed over 4000 procedures, and has become one of Idaho’s leading and busiest refractive surgeons. Dr. Kent’s technical skills and attention to detail play a key role in his patients’ refractive surgery success. As a refractive patient himself, Dr. Kent has an intimate patient perspective and communicates accordingly, which makes his practice stand out above the rest.
Dr. Kent is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the Idaho Medical Association, the Idaho Ophthalmology Society, as well as the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons. Aside from his medical profession, he has a love for the outdoors with interests in fly-fishing, hunting, and golfing. His greatest joy however, is reserved for his wife Kimberly and their four children: Danielle, Alexander, Olivia, and Harrison.
