Patient Comments (7)
in Manchester, TN |
I recently had a laser spine procedure done by Dr. Lien and he was professional, polite and put me at ease before the surgery was done. He also was the only neurosurgeon I contacted after getting my MRI results who would see me in a timely manner. His staff was very professional and accessible and the whole experience was one that made me feel as if I had made the best choice possible in choosing a neurosurgeon for this procedure. I had a broken disc, ruptured disc & pinched nerve. All good now

Went to see Dr. Lien today and his staff was very nice and understanding. Dr. Lien was very kind and had very good manners. Every question I had he explained in detail the answer and did not sugar coat anything. He went over the MRI and CT scan in detail on the computer.

I researched surgeons for over 1 year and decided upon Dr. Lien. I found him to be ethical, empathic, patient driven, and very precise with his explaining what I could expect.
Nashville, TN |
Dr. Lien performed surgery on my back last year and I'm very pleased with the results. It was an out patient surgery and I was home the same day. I would recommend him to friends and family.
in Woodbury,TN |
My husband was seen by Dr Lien 5/16 after seeing ortho and his PCP. He paid $220 out of pocket at visit. Dr Lien has terrible bed side manner,spent 5 min in the room, didnt even review his MRI,ortho notes, or Carpal tunnel test results,but wanted to order it until I told him it was already done. Now he is in collections for a $120 more bill that was sent to wrong zip code and different area code #. This was NOT worth a $570 bill that was sent to insurance! WONT RECOMMEND EVER & I work for a PCP!

I was very dissatisfied with my visit to Dr Lien's office. He had no bedside manner. Seemed to be reluctant to answer healthcare questions and his receptionist and scheduler were very rude. I will not return to his office. I am not going to spend my hard earned money to be mistreated.

Dr. Lien performed a cervical fusion on me, and I'm extremely happy with the results. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.
