Dr. Is a very good doctor. Don’t be in a hurry when you go to see him. Usual wait times at his office is around an hour to an hour and a half. And that is just to get to a treatment room.

I survived COVID, thanks to Dr Lechin!
I was hospitalized with severe double pneumonia which the doctors in the hospital diagnosed as COVID, I needed to be admitted to the ICU, can’t begin to describe how scared I was, couldn’t see any of my family for several days at the beginning due to the tight isolation needed.
Through the ordeal, it was the comforting, reassuring voice of a masked, and fully covered doctor, that daily brought me calm and hope, and treated me like the person I was at the time, don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining about The nurses or any other person that came into my room, but they didn’t say much and understandably kept the required distance. But this masked doctor was all way the same, examined my, and always talked to me, telling me, things are going well, your get the lattes treatment, is working, seemed to understand how scared I was and talked to me about, and brought messages back and forth to my family. Out the ICU, feeling better, 3 weeks latter, not longer contagious, I got to his face! and finally remembered to thank him! Because through all of it before, I’m ashamed to say, I just didn’t think about it! And He just laughed and said, “No need, just doing my job, I hope you’re thanking the right person, and I wouldn’t have remembered either, in your shoes”
I laughed for the first time in weeks!
