My experience has been exceptional in preparing me for surgery, and during and immediately after surgery. I was very disappointed when I called the office to speak with someone about intense back spasms I was experiencing yesterdaShow morey. I could not move without pain and wanted relief. The person I spoke with explained that Dr Lent wouldn’t be in that day. I asked for a call from whoever was covering his patients. I was told someone would be in about noon and would return my call. I waited all day in pain and frustration with no call back. I spent a near sleepless night trying to avoid the jolts of back pain. I hadn’t expected this level of callousness from this office. I mentioned this during my appt today and got no explanation. My appt today was otherwise great and my pain addressed.
Dr. Lent has always been an excellent doctor. He took care of my mother many years ago and was able to relieve her pain. May be one of the smartest orthopedic doctors in New York. Just brilliant and his bedside manner is unsurpassShow moreed and makes you feel at ease very quickly. Highly recommend it. My problem unfortunately is something he doesn’t do which is give epidurals which is where I need help. But he did give me some good advice. I was wondering if there’s any way I can communicate with him via emails as He did let me know if I have any questions and want to come back feel free to do this. Thanks
