I chose this specialty because I have always had an interest in diseases of the blood. My patients can be confident knowing I provide optimal individual patient care based on precision diagnosis and targeted therapy. Although I treat many types of blood diseases, my area of expertise is chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

Conditions I Treat:

- Chronic lymphocytic leukemia/Small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL)
- Hairy cell leukemia
- Prolymphocytic leukemia
- Lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma (Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia)
- Large granular lymphocytic leukemia

Dr. Zent's research has improved our understanding of the therapeutic monoclonal antibodies used to treat CLL, use of molecular prognostic markers in the management of CLL, diagnosis of CLL and related diseases, and evaluation and management of autoimmune cytopenias and second malignancies complicating CLL. His goal as a clinician, researcher and teacher is to continue to improve treatment and outcome for patients with CLL.

Clinical Trials

A Phase II Randomized Study Comparing Ibrutinib and Rituximab Vs Venetoclax and Rituximab in Previously Untreated Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia (WM) / Lymphoplasmacytic Lymphoma (LPL)

Lead Researcher: Clive S Zent

This phase II trial studies the effects of venetoclax and rituximab in comparison to ibrutinib and rituximab in treating patients with previously untreated Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia/lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma. Ibrutinib may stop the growth of c...

Dr. Zent considers the entire constellation of a person's health issues while monitoring CLL In my case it consists of comorbidities with MS and metastatic prostate cancer. I find it especially reassuring that he looks at the whole picture. He listens carefully and I never feel rushed. He patiently provides advice and explanations.

Always an excellent experience in the office, and always (during the work week) prompt replies to my questions through the portal. But I have to say I spent a very anxious weekend after this last visit because a question I sent on the portal wasn't replied to until Monday morning, I understand... but It was rough.

Dr. Zent and I had both researched the same new treatment and concluded it was not right for me, also he diagnosed a skin issue that had been misdiagnosed by my Dermatologist so I will be switching to the dermatologist who works with Dr Zent's patients (Dr. Manavva). We decided based on the experience between the last two treatments that we need to move them closer together. All decisions were very collaborative, and I felt like he listened with respect to my opinions and feedback.
