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.
