Dr. Lentz has been my Cardiologist for a little over a year. Every visit is pleasant. My most recent visit was just as pleasant, but with precautions (face mask, hand sanitizer and social distancing). I communicated a health concern and Dr. Lentz listened attentively and checked for potential issues and gave me a recommendation. He never takes your concern for granted, no matter how small it may seem. He is friendly, patient and down-to-earth! If you are in need of a cardiologist, I highly recommend him.

Dr Lentz and his entire staff are really great. The appointment wait times are minimal, I’ve always been seen within 15 minutes of my appointment time. Dr Lentz takes his time during my visit. He always does a thorough review of my medication regime and listens to my concerns about my meds. I really like that he keeps up to date on the newest guidelines and recommendations. I would highly recommend Dr Lentz and his entire staff.

All vivid 19 precautions observed. Courteous staff. Dr Lentz has an engaging manner and he arrived prepared to discuss relevant issues. He asked questions about other things health related to obtain a full picture of my current situation. I left confident that he was on top of my situation and confident in his judgment. What else could you ask? Highly professional, highly recommended.

Dr. Lentz has been my cardiologist for several years. I have confidence that he is making the best choices in my behalf. His staff, from nurse and sonogram members to office staff have always been cordial and efficient. My appointments have always gone smoothly and on time. He has adjusted my meds gradually and seems to have gotten me in decent cardiac shape. I would recommend him to my friends and family.

Because of the coronavirus and it’s additional hazards to pre-bypass patients, my appointment was conducted over the phone. Since Dr. Lentz preformed an emergency stent during the virus lockdown of the hospital he has kept my wife informed via telephone and has conducted exams with my wife listening on the phone so she was informed as to my recovery and medical needs. Couldn’t ask for a better doctor!

I've been seeing Dr. Lentz for nearly 3 years, ever since he performed a cardiac catheterization based on my symptoms, even though a recent CT calcium score was pretty low and my treadmill stress test was not conclusive. He place a stent in my RAD coronary artery after being surprised to find a severe narrowing in that vessel during the procedure. Since then I've had no symptoms, and he has very carefully followed me every six months. His manner is pleasantly calm and easy going, and he always takes plenty of time to listen to and talk with me. He explains matters in a way that is easy to understand, and I always leave feeling I understand our game plan, even if it is just until the next 6 month follow-up visit. His staff is also very friendly, and I never feel that anyone is rushing. I feel very well cared for by Dr. Lentz and his staff, and would gladly recommend anyone I know to receive cardiac care from him if needed.

I have already recommended Dr. Lentz to people who may need his services. He and his staff were quite helpful in getting me into the lab to have a procedure done just before i had a total hip replacement. They helped relieve some of the preliminary stress! Dr. Lentz has a calm, professional manner which is reassuring. The whole office works quickly and smoothly ... like the proverbial well-oiled machine.
