Patient Comments (1)
Rancho Santa Fe, CA |
This doctor is truly the definition of negligent. He actually ruptured my stitches whilst examining me (along with a track record of perforating many peoples colons during basic GI procedures) his german accent is hard to understand and he constantly makes jokes that arent funny and interrupts patients regardless of how serious their condition may be. Dr Lenz was appointed as the head of medicine in his department. His office looks like something out of skymall magazine. This guy is clueless.
