    I was quite disappointed in Dr. Lechin. Invariably, I had to wait an hour or more after meeting with his nurse. He did not explain things in very much detail. For example, I was told that I needed a stress test after noticing something "irregular" in my echo-cardiogram. I was then given an additional prescription without any explanation of why. I put up with this for many years before seeking another cardiologist in town, which I am much happier with.
