My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

The practice of medicine is both an art and a science. Each patient is an individual with their own distinctive issues. The MDVIP model, that emphasizes wellness and personalized care, will allow me to explore the science and practice the art of medicine with each patient.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Lanza

from Nein in PA March 19, 2024 for Ralph A. Lanza, MD, FACP
Image provided by: Nein

I have been a patient of Dr. Ralph Lanza for the past 34 years. During my association with Dr. Lanza he has never failed me in providing comfort, diagnosis, sincere caring and respect. When a medical specialist is recommended and needed, the specialist confirms the malady of concern and states, "Ralph sent you, didn't he, the man always hits the target". I am now 84 yrs. and rely on Dr. Lanza… See more

from Jeanette in PA March 5, 2024 for Ralph A. Lanza, MD, FACP

Doctor Lanza has been my Primary Care Physician for many years. Always willing to spend time with you. Remember the time my son came to a visit with me and Dr. Lanza spent more than a hour extra time to explain my medical history and why I had many visits to my dermatologist. Very proud Dr. Lanza has been recognized for this award.

from Eve in PA March 2, 2024 for Ralph A. Lanza, MD, FACP

I feel Dr Lanza's skill has extended my healthy, active life by years through his watchful and experienced assessment of all manner of things. I truly appreciate the extra time he has taken to see and/or contact me when I know his schedule is tight. I'm very happy to be his MDVIP patient!

from John in PA March 2, 2024 for Ralph A. Lanza, MD, FACP

Ralph Lanza is more than just our doctor, he is almost part of our family. Not only is he a great physician, but he truly cares for each of the members of our family. He takes whatever time is needed to explain a medical issue and doesn’t sugar coat it. Then he tells you what we can do to make it better or at least live with it or may suggest another doctor or organization who may have more… See more

from Carol in PA March 1, 2024 for Ralph A. Lanza, MD, FACP

My mom has been going to Dr Lanza for decades and eventually I switched over. It was one of the best decisions I made.
Dr Lanza is a good man, a hard worker, conscientious and a wonderful doctor. He is always there for us. My mom tells him he is not allowed to retire 😊

from Harry C in PA March 1, 2024 for Ralph A. Lanza, MD, FACP

Dr. Lanza has been my physician, for more than 25 years. I have always found him to be caring and very detail oriented. He is an exceptional doctor..

from Carolyn in PA March 1, 2024 for Ralph A. Lanza, MD, FACP

Dr Lanza rescued me in ER thirty two years ago. He has been in my corner ever since.
I appreciate his ongoing support of keeping me safe. Congratulations on Castle Connolly award. Carolyn

from Douglass in PA February 17, 2024 for Ralph A. Lanza, MD, FACP

My wife has told me I am a very difficult medical case. All I know is that Dr, Lanza has taken the time to know me, care for me and give me the best advise possible. He has always been available for my call.

Thank you

from Jack in PA February 16, 2024 for Ralph A. Lanza, MD, FACP

Dr. Ralph Lanza is my doctor and has been my primary care provider for over a decade. Many years ago he encouraged me to get an annual CT Scan of my lungs due to an affinity for smoking cigars. In May of 2023, my CT Scan revealed a mass that turned out to be malignant. Fortunately it was caught early enough to be surgically removed. In short, this saved my life since it did not spread beyond… See more

from Richard and Maryellen in PA February 10, 2024 for Ralph A. Lanza, MD, FACP

There's no one moment but rather a pattern of care over many years. My husband and I have been patients of Dr Lanza for many years. We trust him because he listens patiently -- and respond so quickly -- to us when we've had health questions or issues. He is sympathetic to our aches, difficulties with losing weight, challenges with heart disease, and breast cancer. May God bless Dr… See more
