Patient Comments (4)
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

Wonderful doctor who listens and cares. My son has been going to him for the past ten years.
in Cypress, CA |
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.
