Dr Sam Lentz was far & away the best physician ever to treat me. His kindness, willingness to listen, patience in dealing with my anxieties, & detailed explanations before & after surgery gave me absolute confidence in my treatment.

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.

9/20/2016

Couldn't be more happy! Best Dr - Best care in every way!!
