I have been seeing Dr.Lentzner for 9 years because of life altering Panic Attacks. Dr. Lentzner’s knowledge of medications helped me walk away from those major Panic Attacks.

I have been a patient of Dr Lentzner’s for 18 months. In that time he has not only provided me with excellent medical care, he has also been generous with his time and knowledge. Dr. Lentzner is cautious, considerate and conservative when prescribing medication; he is not a doctor that is quick to write a prescription. He is concerned about me as a whole individual. His holistic approach is beneficial and appreciated. I feel heard!

As a 32 year old man who has seen multiple Doctors for anxiety and panic, never in my life have I been more healthy and successful. I've been a patient of his for a little over 2 years and am amazed at his intelligence, wisdom, level of care, and how he gets you to look/think about things in a different way. He loves his job and will be fascinated by you and your story. It's obvious that he was put on earth to do exactly what he's doing and there's no one better. Highest possibly recommendation

Dr. Lentzner is a caring and compassionate physician who listens to his patients and truly evaluates their needs. Unlike some psychiatrists, he doesn't just dispense prescriptions only based on what he has always used. He is willing to experiment and try novel approaches to help his patients with their illness. I can tell you from experience that this is a rarity today. Most doctors give you a prescription, send you out the door and hope for the best.
