Dr. Lienesch is an outstanding physician! He helped me to walk again without pain! He is so kind,compassionate and professional. He listens and takes time with me at every visit. He is an outstanding practitioner, and his knowledge of rheumatology as well as other disease processes adds to the level of care he provides. I have a group of UPMC physicians who care for me and they are ALL outstanding. They have the capability of accessing ALL of my medical records, so they are all on the same page. I feel safe in their care. I travel > 40 miles to see each of my physicians and will continue to do so.
