My appointment was at 10 am and I left the office about 1pm. That was maybe 5 minutes with the nurse and about the same time with him. He w wanted me to get a ct scan of my sinuses. When I asked for the order to get it done, I was told it would be scheduled and I would get a call about the appointment. I got a call 6 WEEKS to day about the appointment. I will not go back.

I saw Dr. Lantz in 1991, I was 6 for chronic sinusitis that I had since birth. He was absolutely amazing! He was the only doctor my mother took me to that actually wanted to help, and did. He performed the surgery and I was issue free for over 20 years, I had a flair up here and there but was able to fight it off. I had a sinus infection for about 2 weeks, 2 years ago and it wouldn't go away, so I went back, and even after 20 years he remembered me! He is the best in Chatt, TN, highly recommend!

My experience of office visit was not pleasant. A 2 pm appointment; however at 4:00 p still waiting in very cold office. I had another appointment so asked staff to have Dr. Lantz review my Audio chart and send me a review and suggestions, As of today I have not heard from their office. I will not return.
