Terrific doctor. Very qualified; listens to you carefully; answers questions completely; treats you like a person, not just another "face"; offers a clear action plan for your health. All in all, one of the very best that I've had over the past 45 years.

Dr. Lienesch always takes the time to talk with you. He is a very caring and knowledgeable physician.

The nurse was very helpful and excellent at taking down the necessary information. The doctor was extremely knowledgeable about my condition, the medications available, and even those that may be approved in the future. The staff and doctor are able to negotiate my insurance issues with excellent results (Blue Shield). Give them all a raise!

Dr. Lieneisch is a wonderful physician provider. He is thoughtful & caring. Even though he is usually incredibly busy, he always makes you feel as if you are the only patient he has to see that day. Very knowledgeable rheumatologist.
