Dr. Lentz and his team are superb! They work as a team, communicate as a team and as a patient you feel well informed. Very caring team.

9/29/2016

I hope I never have to recommend Dr. Lentz, he is a GREAT step above most providers I have ever saw he treats you with dignity and upmost respect at a time that your world is turned upside down. I was very emotional, confused and upset when I first met Dr. Lentz and his staff he has such a great demeanor that I felt calmer and knew I was in the best hands for the treatment(s) I was about to receive. I don't even mine waiting a little extra if I have to at his office (which is very rare) due to the fact I am on the recovery side now with many thanks to God and Dr. Lentz.

6/29/2016

I have had an issue getting feedback in what I perceive to be a timely matter, or absence the feedback, an explanation as to why appointments could not be made sooner or why treatments were delayed. This causes a tremendous amount of stress and worry. I may not want to know the actual results of a test, but I do want to know how I can attack any health problems or issues in the best way. If waiting is the best way, then call to let me know that...don't just leave me hanging!
