Review for Dr. Lenci

Delivered both of my children. Saved the life of my second by trusting his gut and going a c section after a failed stress test. Baby had a collapsed lung and would have coded if delivered vaginally. Love him and his dry humor.

My visit answered many questions about my pain and a plan is in place to ‘fix’ it without surgery. Dr Ceola is the best!
