I love this office and this doctor. The staff in this office is always pleasant, competent and a joy to interact with. This time, Ms. White was a particular joy.

very very good

Dr. Lienesch was excellent. He listened to me and my concerns, he went over some plane films that my PCP had ordered last year. He gave me excellent care and some new exercises to do to strengthen my back muscles for more support. I highly recommend Dr. Lienesch. In fact I have already remmended him to other staff members in my office.

The staff is very friendly and I feel confident that I am getting the best care possible.

Dr. Lienesch is an excellent physician, as a diagnostician and as a professional who has earned my trust and respect. His listening skills and ability to analyze and communicate the state of my condition is comprehensive and actionable. I can discuss any concern with him with complete confidence. I am grateful to be in his care.

February 08, 2018

I have been a patient of Dr Leinesch's for approximately 10 years. He is always very friendly, concerned and genuinely caring a about my health as well as my personal well being.

February 01, 2018

I have honestly never had a physician listen so intently to my concerns and assist me in exploring all possible alternatives to my problems. There was no rush. I felt respected and understood. I really appreciated the way I was treated by Dr. Lienesch and all of his staff. I wish all of my physicians treated me this way.

February 01, 2018

Took along time for appointment.. called in October and they gave me an appt in January...saying they would call me if an opening, they never called! Whenever I get to see the doctor it is always a productive appointment. He and his staff are always professional!

January 31, 2018

Dr Lienesch gives me the best care one could get.

January 29, 2018

Dr. Liensch is the best doctor I see. I see 3 other specialists at UPMC, and they are very good, but Dr. L. always provides me with careful, thoughtful insight into my illness, and provides the care I need.
