Patient Comments (3)

he examined me in July of 2017, and then I heard nothing for almost 30 days as my cancer grew out of control. Like I were not important enough to work on. Complete lack of care and compassion, quite arrogant.

Exceptionally skilled. Extraordinarily meticulous. One of the very best specialists in the entire North East. I know a top ENR surgeon in Boston who would love to have him part of his team, but Lenz's life style is in Bangor. We are blessed to have such a practitioner in Bangor!
