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!

A good friend of mine recommended this Doctor to me, I had over and over bouts of what I was told were episodes of bronchitis or used to have until I met this Doctor. Decided for the proverbial second opinion. So, easy appointment, not really much wait time, Doc saw me, nice guy, easy to talk to, very talkative him self, I got pretty much all of my tests right there, X-ray, breathing tests, allergies, Doctor Lechin took time to explain, sadly it is actually COPD, He promised me he was going to get me better, and actually also helped me to quit smoking! Painlessly, needless to say, I’m very happy, it's been over a year and a half with no respiratory problems.

Dr Lechin is extremely kind, thoughtful and is always concern about my problems, not only health but as a person. Always so comfortable to be there. All people that work there make you feel at home. I highly recommend Dr. Lechin has an outstanding patient care and always finds the right treatments.

Hands down the best doctor I’ve ever met. I found Dr. Lechin after a bout of pneumonia and had a cat scan ordered by another doctor. They found a small nodule and the previous physician never explained anything about it to me, but left me to worry. After a thorough exam and reviewing my reports, dr. Lechin explained everything and that I had nothing to be concerned about. He took so much time to help me understand what was going on. I truly felt that I was in good hands. If you need a pulmonologist, this is your guy!!!

I feel lucky to have been referred to Dr lechin, not easy to find a doctor that meet the expectations we all have of what a doctor should be, so seeing a doctor that despite this new age of doctoring, takes time to talk and always actually examines me and asks about my other medical and personal problems and takes an interest in me integrating it in my treatment, makes me feel cared for and safe.
Thanks doc!

My mother and I have seen Dr. Lechin for years, he is one of the most caring and professional doctors I have ever seen, He started as our asthma doctor and since then became more our internist, He always treated us as a whole, that’s just how He is, He is a treasure to us.

I had a great experience with Dr Lechin.
Thorough, very nice and approachable, a listener and a talker, I found him knowledgeable but able to understand all his explanations, nice staff, a bit of a wait but easy to get my appointment quickly, and I feel much better!
So two thumbs Up

I was looking a lung dr that would really listen to me and I’m so thankful I found Dr. Lechin. He is kind understanding and not to mention he is knowledgeable and explained everything to me in a way that I could understand. I definitely will continue to see him.
