After attending undergraduate and medical school at the University of Nevada, Reno, Dr. Gentner moved to Scottsdale, Arizona, to complete his family practice residency program. He returned to Carson City and has been providing family medical care at Carson Medical Group since 1995.
When you meet Dr. Gentner, it is clear he is passionate about health: for his patients, his family, and himself. He is committed to giving his patients the tools and assistance to reach their highest level of well-being possible. Dr. Gentner sees patients of all ages including infants and children.
When Dr. Gentner is not in the office, he enjoys all the high-desert and the mountains have to offer. He appreciates experiencing all four seasons in the Sierra, from snowboarding to camping off the grid with his wife of over 35 years. Whether it is cycling, exploring on an e-bike, or riding his dirt bike. He jokes that if it has two wheels, he loves it.
Together he and his wife (a highly-regarded, retired first-grade teacher) share a love of education and healthy living. Dr. Gentner often mentors young people regarding healthcare careers. Regardless of his patient’s ages, he says he learns something new from his patients every day.
