      Very good Doctor! Dr. Lien was the second specialist recommended to help with my medical condition which was first thought to be coming from one of my artificial hips. She was able to narrow the cause and better identify the infection and I'm now on my second series of follow-ups for which she as offered better solutions that have improved results and comfort ordered by the other specialist. She is straight forward and has a no nonsense approach with an 'out-going' positive attitude.

      Dr. Lien accomplished in 30 seconds what would have taken us 30 days! She is direct yet personable, answered all our questions and really cared about our concerns. She made sure we understood the plan going forward and left us feeling educated and optimistic about the diagnosis.

      Total lack of respect for her patients concerns. Very late and insensitive

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
