Spent as much time as I needed with him, greeted me himself and welcomed me to the practice. Took my medical history in his office, not an exam room which was a very nice touch.

It was my first visit, Dr. Lied was extremely helpful, personable, knowledgable and made me feel very comfortable throughout the experience. All of the staff was friendly and I was seen within a minute of finishing my paperwork, which took about 5 minutes total.

Very professional, personable, and honest. I have been looking for a new provider and I am pretty sure I am going to stay with him. He seems very accessible and I love how his practice has an online portal where you can make appts, email the doctors, and refill prescriptions.

Dr Lief was extremely attentive and it seemed as if he was looking at my case as special. He spent plenty of time explaining everything to me, including costs of necessary lab work. He was thorough and took every detail and option into consideration. He told me to call him for anything, with any questions. I came away thinking I was well taken care of and that Dr. Lief had my best interests at heart.
