Dr. Lienesch has been a great help in improving my quality of life. He is always trying to help with pain management. I've recommended him to several people.

August 11, 2016

It was my first visit to see Dr. Lienesch. He was very courteous and listened to everything that I wanted to tell him about my condition. He was very thorough, he ordered X-Rays and blood work and I feel sure if he finds anything out of the ordinary in my results he will let me know. I will return in December.
