Bogus bad reviews

The bad reviews scared me. I almost cancelled my appointment. So glad I didn't. Dr. Lencke was courteous, respectful, empathetic, and did not rush me at all. I feel I was evaluated and treated properly. I have confidence in this Doctor and feel, in time, I will improve.

Retired R.N.

The most narrow minded M.D.I have ever seen. I was diagnosed on his decision before the exam. He should be a construction worker.
