Excellent care

June 29, 2016

This was a first visit to diagnose problems (but no crises). Therefore many of your questions (answering phone calls etc) are inapplicable. Doctor was superb: showing care, concern and excellent medical skill and knowledge. He explained things very well. His staff had little interaction with us but was very pleasant and good. The visit gave us great confidence in his (and their) care for us.

Dr. Lanz is the best! Friendly and caring

May 16, 2016

Dr. Lanz is the specialist I see re: a lung cancer scare for the past 2 years. He kept watch on nodules in my lungs. I had complete confidence in him and his staff. they helped me deal with a frightening health scare. visits are now completed.

May 11, 2016

My only complaint is that I would have liked to talk to the provider about the results of my CT scan instead of having someone call from the office and read results to me. The results were somewhat ambiguous.
