Meet Dr. Robert Lending
Concierge Doctor in Tucson, AZ
Board-Certified Internal Medicine & Lipidology Specialist
Board-certified in Internal Medicine and Clinical Lipidology, Dr. Robert E. Lending has spent his entire professional career serving the healthcare needs of adults in the Tucson, Arizona, area.
Dr. Robert Lending graduated from Hahnemann Medical College (now known as Drexel University College of Medicine) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1980 and completed his residency in Internal Medicine at Tucson Medical Center in 1983.
He is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Clinical Lipidology – designations that demonstrate a mastery of knowledge and skills in these particular medical specialties.
Knowledgeable, compassionate, favored by patients, and respected by his peers, Dr. Lending began his medical career in private practice in 1983. He is a founding member and past president of the physician-owned Arizona Community Physicians, the largest primary care group in southern Arizona. The group, which started with Dr. Lending as one of nine doctors and four locations in 1994, now employs about a thousand trained staff in 55 locations throughout southern Arizona.
In 2018, Dr. Lending decided to return to his roots of delivering personalized, one-on-one health care in a more intimate professional setting. He has partnered with Cypress Concierge Medicine and is now one of a limited number of physicians in the region offering membership-based concierge medicine to patients. This provides more time, attention, and VIP service than patients would experience at your average Internal Medicine provider.
As Tucson's only Adult Clinical Lipidologist, Dr. Lending is also available for consultations in this field – separate from his concierge practice. Primary care or other physicians seeking to refer their patients for knowledgeable guidance, screening, and management of issues surrounding cardiovascular risk assessment and cholesterol levels often send patients his way.
Dr. Lending prides himself on taking the time to listen and communicate clearly, so patients can actively participate in their treatment options.
In his spare time, Dr. Lending enjoys hiking, bicycling, gardening, and cross-training.
