I would recommend Dr. Brian Lentz to any of my friends and associates because he is caring, very professional and very up to date on procedures and medications related to treatment of various conditions and explains conditions and treatment clearly and in laymen terms making it easy to understand.
Treated a family member. He was awesome and very caring. Gave great care and even called personally to check on family members progress a few days later. Would highly recommend

Dr Lentz explains everything. He is compassionate and caring. He shows this not just by what he says but what he does and how he treats his patients. I am so glad to have found him. He has literally saved my life.
Very unprofessional condescending personality. Talks about previous doctors giving bad health care. I would not recommend him to anyone. I have been a patient at that office for over 30 years. Dr. Lentz wants to do unnecessary testing and does not respect financial situations of his patients. I don't think he will do well in this practice.

Dr. Lentz was referred to me by my Pulmonologist. This practice has the friendliest staff and nurse. Dr. Lentz was knowledgeable and took. Time to answer all of my questions. The day following my visit, I had a question and Dr. Lentz took my call himself. Very impressive and I highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for a great Cardiologist.

I am very pleased with the care and attention given to my Grandmother by Dr. Lentz. Whether in the office or at the hospital, he is very patient with her and makes her feel comfortable. He does not rush discussions and gives us time to ask questions. My family has seen other doctors in his field and none have provided the level of service and care he has.
