"Dr. Lents has done several surgeries and I have been completely satisfied with his service. His staff are very kind and caring and I wouldn't want anyone else as my ortho doctor. He listens to any complaint I have and treats it according and the waiting time is very minimal. Thanks to the entire staff for your care and kindness." – Shirley L.
