Executive Leadership

Orthopaedic Surgeon & Founder

Leonard “Lenny” Lomax, M.D.
Orthopaedic Surgeon
Founder, President & CEO

Dr. Leonard 'Lenny' Lomax is the Founder & CEO of Ultimaxx Health, an early stage “Natural” pharmaceutical company founded in 2009, developing innovative consumer healthcare products that will help improve their general health and well-being.

Dr. Lomax is a Physician & Orthopaedic Surgeon. As a physician, he became tired of watching patients suffer as a result of the adverse side effects of many pharmaceutical products; side effects often so severe in some cases they not only led to addiction but in many, death. This didn't settle well with his core beliefs. His passion for solving this problem, specifically prescription “painkiller” addiction, prompted him to develop his first safe and effective, “natural”, non-narcotic OTC pain remedy, LEVARE® (pronounced: la-var-ay), for which he received a prestigious patent in 2012. Patients and consumers can now have a much-needed alternative to prescription narcotics; one that is non-habit forming, versus those comprised of synthetic compounds that may cause addiction and other harmful adverse side effects.

Dr. Lomax defines his role as a physician as being someone trusted by patients and their families.  ‘Doctors are expected to heal, not cause more pain and suffering’.  Dr. Lomax acknowledges that natural medications have the potential to greatly improve the public's general health and well-being, as our country has become a nation addicted to pills, which is destroying our communities.

As the CEO of Ultimaxx Health, his mission is to find a resolution to this pervasive problem by offering effective natural solutions to remedy this global problem. As he often states "I know GOD made me for this purpose.  It makes my spirit full and motivates me!  I am so encouraged that I have been blessed with this mission.  I became a Doctor to help people and that's exactly what I plan to do." Dr. Lomax obtained his Bachelors of Science degree from Temple University, received his Medical Doctorate from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, and completed his Orthopaedic Surgery residency training at the top-ranked Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia.

Ultimaxx Health is currently focused on developing patented, clinically tested, “natural” non-narcotic OTC pain relief alternatives, metabolic mood enhancement supplements like “Advyndra™”, and human performance optimization products.  Through Ultimaxx Health and with products like LEVARE, Dr. Lomax and his team will continue to focus on positively impacting the lives of many and on “Changing The World Naturally™” One Life at a Time.
