I started Chelation with Dr. Peter Gent to help with the pain and itch from the shingles virus. Vitamin C for the virus and vitamin B for the nerve damage on the side of my face and head. It has been very successful. But, I have gotten a surprise bonus from the Chelation. After the eighth Chelation I noticed the stiffness and swelling in my hand. from arthritis had disappeared. I am now able to work in my flower and vegetable gardens. C.Y. 2013
"Dr. Gent is the most knowledgeable Thyroid Specialist I have ever seen. I have been to 5 different "specialists" since being diagnosed with Hashimoto's and Dr. Gent is the only physician to treat ME, the patient, instead of focusing on the T4 blood work. After less than a year I am feeling better than I have in the past 10! Thank you Dr. Gent and Staff. I will continue to refer my family and friends." T.T. Hampton, VA 2018
"I highly recommend Dr. Peter Gent. He is caring, compassionate, well informed, and appreciates the fact that I have done my own research. He listens to what I have to say and talks to me like an adult instead of patronizingly talking at me. My appointments have both been about 30 minutes spent with the doctor. He makes one feel very comfortable in the appointment, going so far as to weigh women patients at the end so they won't feel uncomfortable from the beginning. He treats my hypothyroidism on the basis of my symptoms and basal temperature with Armour and is experimenting with supplemental T3 in some patients. He also recognizes a connection of hypothyroidism with Candida and with hyperinsulinism and is willing to treat the Candida. He is very perceptive and takes into account my lifestyle when recommending treatment. Finding him is the best thing I have ever done for my health and I feel blessed to be his patient." Anonymous
"Dr. Gent has given me a new perspective on how I should feel every day. He listens to his patients and truly wants them to feel better. If you follow his advice and come to your visits you will soon feel like a new person." H.H.2018
"Dr. Gent has literally saved me twice from unbearable pain and impending surgery. I began with him three years ago when I was having terrible lower back pain and numbness radiating down my left leg and I could not walk without a pain or a limp, I couldn't sleep or sit in any position that was comfortable. My primary doctor at the time told me it was a nerve problem and that if medication didn't correct it I would need surgery. When relating this to a coworker she suggested that I seek Dr. Gent's advice. After my first visit I experienced my first pain free day in over a year. My second salvation came this past year when I had seen another doctor in his practice for neck/shoulder/arm pain from a collapsed disc that was pressing on a nerve. After following all of his orders, medication, physical therapy, and then to a neurological surgeon. That was when I decided to give Dr. Gent a try. Again, I am happy to say that within a few visits I am completely pain free and that I will not be having the surgery. He has given me back my life without surgery. He is an amazing doctor, he listens to you and works with you to find the answers to your needs. To me he is a life saver and I would recommend him to anyone that is having any medical issues."

"I just wanted to say that we are so happy we found Dr Gent. He is an amazing doctor. You can tell he cares about his patients and that' s what we have been looking for. It has been a long time since we have had faith in a doctor. Thanks for everything!" C.and D. B, 2018
"Dr. Gent was a Godsend! I came to him when I was completely out of hope and disenchanted with the numerous medical doctors I had seen. For years, slowly at first, I started feeling tired, fatigued, forgetful, and depressed. When I told my family doctor, she put me on antidepressants and a slew of other medications but nothing helped. I felt worse as time went by. I changed doctors and saw specialists only to be told that I was 'fine'. When I complained that the new medication wasn't working, they increased the dose and sent me home feeling as if I simply had to 'get over it' and that it was all in my head. Then a dear friend suggested Dr. Gent. I listened, learned, and implemented his suggestions and advice into my daily life. Within the first 30 days I started seeing and feeling a bit better, which gave me hope to continue.It has now been six months since my first visit and I am on the road back to the person I used to be. I have been off of my 17 year dependency of antidepressants for the last three months and feel wonderful. I am starting to regain my energy and the fatigue, mental fog, and many of my other woes are starting to go away. Sure, I have to travel two hours to see him, but the trip is well worth it. I would travel anywhere to be seen by Dr. Gent. He pulled me out of a very deep, dark hole and is slowly getting my body and metabolism back to where it should be. I will always be indebted to him!"
