Metuchen, NJ |
Dr. Carmencita Lanez has been treating me for about 3 years. She has been treating me for attention and memory issues, and anxiety and depression. My parents live in a different country and I have had trouble sleeping due to the anxiety this has caused me, and his medications together with insights have helped me cope. I have already recommended her to 2 of my friends.

I have been seeing Dr. Lanez for several years now. I travel far just to see her. I highly recommend her. She's intelligent and knowledgeable.

I was initially hesitant to visit Dr. Lanez based on the reviews, but I'm extremely happy that I decided to see her. She is extremely knowledgeable and helped me and my family. I'm not sure why many of these reviewers are looking for someone who coddles them or is "nice". I care more about competency. Dr. lanez might be direct and not "nice", but she knows her stuff.
Avenel, NJ |
Nice lady but not very involved with patient. Each time I have visited over 3 years, it seems like a first visit as she doesn't recall personal info. She comes off distant and prescribes medication very easily. I have had to decline suggested medications as I don't want to become too dependent. Office staff is the most challenging part of the practice. They have been unhelpful, defensive, and argumentative when trying to reschedule an appointment. Sadly, I will need to go elsewhere.

Nothing short of terrible. She treated my 13 yr old daughter. She not only misdiagnosed her but had her on so many medications, she felt nauseous and sick all the time. She never listened to my child or us and just kept pushing medications. She should have her license revoked. Do yourself or your child a favor and find another Doctor!

I would highly recommend Dr. C. T. Lanez . She is caring and has helped improve my life tremendously.
Woodbridge, NJ |
Dr. Lanez was a very cold and distant individual which made for a horrible doctor. AFter being diagnosed with a disorder I found her unwilling and incapable of doing anything other than writing prescriptions. I would not even send my worst enemy to this woman.
She doesn't listen. Just looks at her screen, and uses surveys to diagnose patients. Doesn't even bother to ask follow up questions or even try to diagnose herself. Would NOT recommend. If you need meds soon, go to her until you can find a real doctor. But look into the meds she gives, she doesn't seem to have much knowledge about personalized treatment planning.
