I really enjoyed the care which I received from Dr. Liening! He and his staff were very competent and compassionate. My 86 year old mother also was wonderfully cared for by them.

Waited a long time in the waiting room. Had asked the front step if he was running behind and they said no. We were finally seen 1hr 20 minutes after our appointment time. He answered the questions very well and seem to know what he was talking about. So if you have time, he's a good person to see. But I really hate long wait times, especially after I asked the staff

Was able to be seen the same day I had an urgent problem issue with my ears just before needng to fly. Short wait in the waiting room, was taken in, an evaluation was made, was treated with placement of a tube in the affected ear. Was advised about precautions that I needed to take while the issue resolved, but was grateful to be comfortable flying and subsequent recovery. Thanks!
