Although, the circumstances for my visit were not ideal, the care I received was exceptional. Dr. Lienesch was very knowledgeable, kind and answered my concerns which eased my mind.

Dr. Lienesch is always available to me between visits via email which I find very convenient and comforting. He answers my email quickly and always simply. This often helps prevent a long distance trip to his office which is a far drive from our home and the drive is hard as we are both elderly. He is one of the best doctors I have ever had!

I love Dr. Lienesch. He epitomizes what every doctor should be.

Dr. Lienisch is a wonderful doctor! Whenever I email regarding an appointment (generally just an injection as needed in left hand), my call is returned in a very timely fashion. My appointments with him are always informative and we discuss my care as equal partners in my care and treatment. I truly appreciate him and his staff.
