Dr. Lentz cares for patients with hemostatic and hematological disorders, including those with hemophilia or thrombophilia. Thrombophilia is a condition in which predisposes to an increased risk to develop blood clots. These blood clots may produce symptoms in the legs, lungs, or other organs, and are potentially fatal if not treated appropriately. Thrombophilia may be congenital (present at birth or inherited) or acquired as the result of another condition. Patients with thrombophilia should be evaluated by an experienced Hematologist. If anticoagulation is recommended, patients should be monitored on a regular basis by an anticoagulation service.
