Dr. Lieber has been treating me for several years now and has improved my back so much. I have complete trust in his skill and appreciate his continuing education in regenerative medicine. I like his dry sense of humor and straight forward manner. He always calls to follow up and treats me extensively whenever I make the 5 hour trip so he makes it worthwhile.

I am from N, J, and had the privilege of being evaluated by Dr.Leiber, he came across as being very knowledgable, and believe you me, I have been through the mill with surgeries and procedures. He listened to me, answered my questions and was patient. I was very impressed with his staff from reception to anesthesia. Honestly, I mean every word I wrote and oh, of course, Kate who got the ball rolling, I wish I lived nearer, I am hoping for success, yes success.! after much pain and misery,

Only helpful as long as they can do procedures on you. They discharge MANY patients without tapering medications and with no referrals to other pain doctors. When asked directly the PAs will lie directly to you as well as being very condescending about your pain. They definitely look at you as if you are drug seeking when you just want pain relief. Heck, they even did a injection on me for the wrong leg (lawyers). I wonder if my skin were white if I would have been treated the way I was, Hymm??

Do not use this doctor. He’s condescending and rude. He has no bedside manners. He practically called me a liar. This isn’t a one time experience. It’s been over two years and about 15 office visits. He handed me over to his PAs and can’t look me in the face when I’m there. PAs and office staff are nice but he is not.

Dr Lieber has helped me tremendously with my chronic back pain. He offers the latest/most effective non-surgical treatments. I find him to be very kind and patient. It sounds silly, but if I am having a procedure and say “stop”, he stops. This allows me to have the procedures without any anesthesia, which is my preference. I can trust him to not try to push me beyond what I can handle, so I have no need to be sedated. It sounds obvious, but some other doctors are more concerned with speed.

Just had my stem cell procedure and I was apprehensive but I am glad I went through with it. I am only one week out from procedure but I am experiencing some relief already. I will post again in 2-3 months. Dr. Lieber and his staff are top notch and stayed on schedule thoroughly. Dr. Lieber was very compassionate and answered all my concerns efficiently and effectively. If you are contemplating this procedure I highly recommend their office!

On December 19, 2016 had a stem cell procedure for my shoulder with Dr. Lieber and my results were just excellent. Dr. Lieber is very professional, caring and understands completely what he is doing and explains what he is doing to the patient. Very good communication and comes across that he seriously cares about the patient and wants to improve the patient's condition. Michael R. Swartz, 4-26-2017

I've had severe pain in my left knee for 10+ years walked very little & w/cane, was seeing an ortho dr. for most of that time. Scheduled a full replacement, insurance refused to pay due to me being on too many pain meds (duh) and not healthy enough. Was discouraged, went to talk with Dr Lieber, he talked with me and explained the stem cell procedure. Had the final process a little over 3 mon. ago. I can't believe the difference, no pain!!!!!!! it's expensive but would do it again.

Dr. Lieber has given me a me new lease on life! I am 3 months post stem cell transplant into my knee. My osteoarthritis was so bad I was facing having a knee replacement. Dr. Lieber is very serious about his work, cares about the outcome, which translates to caring about his patients. My knee is so improved that just 2 months post I was doing some hiking in NH and Maine. I have not been able to hike for 10 years. If you have knee pain, see Dr. Lieber.

Dr Lieber Took plenty of time explaining the procedure to me. I knew I was in excellent hands and I trusted him completely. He made me feel comfortable thru the entire procedure. You could not ask for a better doctor. ( Every person I talk to that needs knee surgery. I say "call Dr. Lieber" He gets 5 stars from me.

My issue was a torn Meniscus in my left knee causing significant pain. I considered 2 options: (1) The "Normal" surgery approach and (2) Stem Cell injections to regrow tissue and rehab the knee. I chose #2 because, I may avoid needing a knee replacement - perhaps permanently (the surgeon said I may need a knee replacement within 5-10 years of his surgery). My insurance did NOT cover the Stem Cell procedure. Stem Cell worked beautifully. I'm healed, no pain, and golfing 3x per week!

Miracle-worker! For years, I tried every treatment possible by multiple experts, but nothing worked. I was excited to learn about PRP therapy and that there was a leading expert in the field right here in Pittsburgh. Dr. Lieber offers cutting edge treatments that allow your body to heal itself. His staff is friendly and knowledgeable. It's only been 1 month and I feel like I have a whole new wrist with virtually no pain. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Lieber and his practice.

I was told I needed a knee replacement by another doctor. I decided in stead to have stem cell therapy on the knee and could feel the difference/improvement within 2 weeks. It has now been four weeks and 90% of my knee swelling is gone and there is no pain. Dr Lieber spent the time to answer my questions and made sure I was using the correct protocall to get the best results from the procedure. I would do this again if I had another joint issue.
