He has been my Cardiologist for over a decade now and has been a major factor in bringing me back from 2 heart attacks and open heart surgery. He and his colleagues were effective in countering the effects of my P.A.D. during a very difficult period dealing with osteomylitis and a diabetic sore on my foot. His professional competence combined with his personal compassion found a solution during an hospitalization in the Fall of 2017 that had eluded 3 Hospitalists over 4 days because he knew me and listened. For this and other instances of his curing and caring I would like to thank him and highly recommend his services.

Dr Tenzer has been the most thorough doctor, I have been extremely impressed. He explains things very well, answers questions and takes his time, one of the few doctors I have been too who doesn't rush through everything so fast you are not quite sure what was said in the end. I certainly had an event and I feel extremely confident that not a stone has been left unturned in resolving the issues. Incredibly excellent doctor, I highly recommend him.

Dr. Marc Tenzer is my mother's cardiologist and I cannot thank him enough for the care he takes with her. He is a prime example of a caring doctor who takes the time to consider her whole well-being, not just heart issues. She has such peace of mind after seeing him and knows that he has taken her health concerns seriously and completely.

I met Dr. Tenzer while in the hospital in 2015. I was very ill.....3 1/2 years later I am at the top of my game and feeling better than I have in over ten years. How did this happen? Dr. Tenzer saved my life. Without him I wouldn’t be here today to eat, breathe, enjoy time with my kids and granddaughters.

Very professional looked over all test result before he told me what my condition was and how we were going to handle it.. Dr Tender seem not to care how much time he spent with me and just took his time to explain what everything meant that meant a lot to me. Like he really cared about me and I think he does.
