Patient Comments (1)
in LaVista, NE |
I was a patient of Dr. Bliecher when he was at Bergan Mercy Hospital. He had removed about 3 moles of mine at different times. I thought he was fantastic! . He was kind and caring and very thorough. I liked the fact that he checked you out, answered your questions and then while he was still in the room with you recorded what his diagnosis was and also everything he had spoken to you about your condition. I just wish he was still over here in Omaha, as I don't drive in Council Bluffs.
