My son recently had brain surgery performed by Dr. Lesniak to remove a tumor resting on his facial nerve, balance and hearing nerves. From the moment we saw Dr. Lesniak, our experience with him and his staff was so very professional, kind and reassuring. Dr. Lesnial told me my son would walk out of the NW hospital on Thursday or Friday after his surgery on Monday. To my shock and relief, my son walked out of the hospital on Thursday! He is doing well. Dr. Lesniak is an excellent surgeon!

Dr lesniak is the best. When my husband needed surgery for his brain tumor, dr lesniak came up with a total new way to perform the surgery that had never been done. He has performed 5 surgeries on him. He is straight and to the point. No better Doctor. He is the best. And his staff is excellent.
