At my most recent visit I dealt primarily with Dr. Lienesch, not the nursing staff. I am very pleased with the care I have received from him and would highly recommend him to others. His approach is inclusive (of patient input), respectful and thorough.

Simply put, this was the best medical attention I have received in my 16 years in the States.

Dr. Lienesch is a doctor that listens. He will offer suggestion, answer your questions, and he is pleasant about it. Most doctors will get you in and out in 30 seconds. I have recommended him to many friends.

This was an office visit regarding increased painfrom possible carpal tunnel.Dr. Lienesch got me in the very next day, and, as always, spent sufficient time with me examining my wrist and listening to my observations. He is very thorough with diagnostic possibilities, and potential treatment. he is very calm, very personable, and very caring! A great doc!!!!!
