12/31/2014

I would recommend this physician to anyone and everyone, he is so kind, explains the situation/issue, does not rush and his Dr in training had the same manner as the Dr. I was sent to this Dr from my OBGYN due to a failed surgery, I was very nervous about seeing a different Dr but I do not think I could find a more caring and passionate Dr.

10/28/2014

I really like this provider but I dont feel that enough was spent addressing any concerns. He doesnt look at you directly when talking to you, he is always working on the computer. His exam visits feel rushed- I didnt feel that I had any time to discuss the concerns that I was having before being advised to get dressed and we will talk in my office. Which was less than 5 minutes!

I would like for everyone to be given this kind of respect and care from this physician and staff.

He is a great doctor. He takes time to explain everything and asks if I understand and if I have anymore questions. During an exam, he tells me what he is doing and why. He speaks in a very comforting manner. It puts one at ease. I feel lucky to have him for my doctor.

5/5/2014

My husband did recommend my Dr. to a colleague of his. He has a sick family member. I am so grateful for Dr. Lentz and the others involved in my care. I am a christian and I know firsthand the power of prayer and the importance of a skilled and caring physician.
