Patient Comments (7)
I can't even begin to tell you how upset I am and now that I am reading other reviews, I see I am not alone. I have a tear in my hip that likely happened 4 months ago (I'm in my early 20s). Today, I can hardly walk and the pain is agonizing. I was desperate for help. He went over my MRI using terminology I did not understand, handed me pamphlets, and basically showed me the door. I actually went after him continuing to ask my questions. His overall suggestion? Foam rolling, call back in a month.

Worst doctor I have seen in a long time! I went to his office on several occasions. The first time he told me to stretch and I would be fine. The next time I went, I had to beg him for a cortisone shot. I had an MRI and he didn't find a tear. He told me to continue to stretch. I went to another Doctor who did find the tear. He rushes you and spends no time with you. Would never recommend him.

Recently had shoulder surgery with Dr. Lena. Overall an excellent experience. I am now doing my physical therapy and my therapist is amazed at how great an outcome I have had. I feel that I received the best possible care and would highly recommend.

A good surgeon but will not remember who you are or take the time to actually talk and listen to you. Had several surgeries hip and knee with this practice and doc to each time be told I needed a procedure that they refused to do. Left this group to go to another doc who would actually listen to what patients want and need. The wait times were always long and it feels like he is pusheong from patient to patient just to get everyone seen.
Middletown, CT |
VERY unsatisfied. I heard rave reviews and was excited to meet a great doctor. Unfortunately, he was not as interested. I told him that at age 28 I had been having bad knee pain every day for 10 years. He told me the surgery I had 5 years ago was useless, & he gave me a knee brace for ONE knee (no instructions). I continued to ask questions about next steps, shoes that would help, exercises to do, and Dr. Lena walked out of the exam before I could even finish my sentence...
