Dr. Lenna A Martyak has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Incredible doctor

Please note, I have been to many doctors and was unfortunately misdiagnosed for many years and was skeptical of seeing another doctor tell me that I was crazy, however I listened to my good friend who is also a pt of dr martyak's, wow, was I sure I glad I saw her, she was able to me diagnose me with a rare condition and being with her now for over a year my life has truly changed, I am no longer in pain and have a new outlook on life, she is truly compassionate, listened to my problems, returned my phone calls promptly and made sure we had a plan in place that we both agreed upon, she is the best doctor that I've ever had and I would recommend her to anyone with any stomach problems

I had a specialist in another area suggest I get regarding a colonoscopy. I chose Dr. Martyak based on the reviews here and two people who were satisfied with their treatment from her. I, however, was NOT satisfied and that's only a reflection of her verbal treatment! I relayed my story to two other doctors that I see regularly, both had a story from previous patients regarding her manner. One said, "She has no bedside manner." The other said that she was 'rough'. I would say she was 'aggressive and negative', or, if I were a weaker sole, I'd say she was 'intimidating'.

Don't waste your time

After waiting 35 minutes past my appointment time, I was told she was running late and I would be seen one hour and forty five minutes after my appointment time. Who does this to people? Completely unacceptable. I left.

I was very impressed with my initial consultation with Dr. Martyak. She was very thorough in her questioning and listened intently to my answers. I felt very comfortable about my colonoscopy. The staff at the Endoscopy Center of Southern Californa were caring and made my short time there very pleasant. Before the procedure Dr. Martyak again explained how the procedure would be performed and after explained the results clearly. She is easy going and makes you feel comfortable. She really knows here "stuff". I highly recommend her.

I am a fairly new patient of Dr. Maryak's, and I had a colonoscopy w/ her a few months back. (The third one I've had in my life)....My procedure with her was *so* much better than my prior two experiences, and her bed-side manner and ability to explain complex medical concepts in an easy-to-understand way is top-notch. I will never go to anyone else again. She is simply the best gastroenterologist out there!
