I will be sorry to see Dr. Lenisch leave. He is one of the few docs that really listen.

I love Dr. Lienesch as my doctor, I'm just said he'll be leaving. He has always shown me respect and concern to any issues I might have brought up. You can tell he really cares about patients.

I've been a patient of Dr. Lienesch for over ten years. He is the best! He listens to me and always seems to have all the time in the world for me. I was quite saddened to hear him say he is leaving UPMC and heading to Delaware. I hope they realize how lucky they are to be getting him!

Dr Leinish is a wonderful doctor. He knows everything I have ever asked him and always confident in his treatment of me. I am very very satisfied with his care. I use Health Trak online to ask him some non urgent things and he always answers in a timely manner. Medical Assistant Ray is great also. Always friendly and efficient. I am not happy Dr Leinish is moving because he has always give me great care! I will miss his expertise!
