Dr. Lenihan is an excellent doctor
Patient | January 30, 2017

Doctor had not reviewed ANY of the multitude of records prior to my long distance visit to Nashville. Read thru paperwork as I sat with him in the office. Not sure if he even looked at the actual echocardiogram or simply read the report. Flippant attitude about the type of chemo and future effects (long term) to my overall heart health.

Dr. Lenihan has improved my condition greatly!
Patient | July 28, 2016

Dr. Lenihan is one of the best doctors - taking great care of my medical concerns.
Patient | June 14, 2016

I feel Dr. Lenihan looks out for my best interest. I had Hodgkins from 1987-1994 (4 times) and had treatment at Vanderbilt and working with MD Anderson as well. Dr. Lenihan's background with MDA and oncology long-term side effects is a great benefit. I feel he always listens to my concerns and understands my unique issues. Excellent doctor!
