Five Stars

I have been to a few pediatrics over the past 9 years and Dr Lenser is one of the best. I know she is busy and at times does not have an extended amount of time to linger in conversation, but when ever I have had a question or had a concern it has always been answered in kind and knowledgeable way. She has a broad knowledge base and has excellent judgement. My family has always been well taken care of. Her practice is busy and if an appt was not available the same day, I have always been seen with in 24 hours. The staff has always been kind and understanding. I appreciate being given home care advice instead of always having to come in. I would suggest her office to anyone looking for a pediatrician. I hope I never have to leave.

Five Stars

We love Dr. Lenser's office. She has a great bedside manner and takes her time during the appointment. I never feel rushed. Dr. Lenser takes great care of our kids and they are very comfortable with her. Her nurses are wonderful with our kids also. I love that they are on time and we never have to wait for more than a few minutes.

Not impressed

After hearing rave reviews about Dr. Lenser we were very excited to meet her and have our son visit her. However, after 3 visits (well baby, weight check and sick) we were very unimpressed. Our visits were short, interrupted and very rushed. One time, when he was sick, she was booked solid the next day and her office staff said, "just go to urgent care, we cannot help you." After that, we did not go back. I still have friends who love her, we however, did not.

Service level much different than before

Dr. Lenser used to show our family great service but within the past year her level of caring, ease of getting an appointment, call backs, and office staff service has diminished. I am looking for another pediatrician and am hoping to find one that is what she USED to be. Yes, doctors have families and lives of their own, but if you cannot see patients and treat them with respect maybe you need to hire another doctor to help out if your simply "too busy", all of the time.

Outstanding Pediatrician...wont find better!!

First off, I love how thorough and knowledgeable Dr Lenser is. I have never been unhappy with her office, wait time, appointment scheduling or anything. They are all very caring and attentive. Im moving out of state and definitely worried I wont find another pediatrician at her level. My son was born with a intestinal disease and Dr Lenser provided my particular son with expertise care. Even made a life saving phone call after office hours that litterally saved my sons life. She really listens and I will forever be gratefull for the care she provided my 3 sons with. You can not go wrong with Dr Lenser
