Wow. Waited a long time for appt. His fellow was great. He was not. Blew off symptoms. He was so condescending. Patients know their body. He wasn't hearing it. Rude Dr. and I am a nurse. Don't hope for a solution, acted like I was a bother.

DR. LECHAN IS AT THE HEAD OF HIS CLASS IN BOSTON. HE IS A GENIUS AT METABOLISM. I HAD A TUMOR REMOVED FROM MY PITUITARY GLAND BY NEUROLOGY AND DR. LECHAN IS MONITORING MY RECOVERY. HIS BEDSIDE MANNER SOMETIMES LEAVES A LITTLE TO BE DESIRED, BUT DO NOT BE AFRAID TO STAND UP FOR YOURSELF. HE WILL SOFTEN. GREAT GUY. LOVE HIM.
