Doctor Kara Liechty is always prepared and knowledgeable about recent additions to my medications and is updated on lab work results period when She orders blood work or other tests she always gets the results posted to MyChart in a timely manner. The good Samaritan hospital pain clinic staff is always polite courteous and professional when and working with me on my health care needs and related matters(like updating forms or reviewing current medications). I appreciate that Doctor Liechty asks questions to clarify what is going on currently with my pain status and listens intently to my answers asking questions for clarification or more details and she needs to. When presenting new ideas ideas or suggestions for medications she is very thorough and explaining why she has chosen this particular medication as the best option for me too try.

I feel very fortunate to have the care team at the Legacy Pain Clinic helping me with issues of chronic pain and depression. Dr. Lichty, Dr. Dominguez and now Dr. Nemeth have been so good at helping me troubleshoot my mental health and issues of chronic pain in multiple sites of my body.

She is a good doctor, but it seems like it is usually a long wait time to get an appointment. Maybe she doesn't need anymore new clients.

Dr Liechty is my pain management specialist and has been for the past three years. At every appointment she fully listens to any concerns I may have, offers detailed explanations, and uses my input when providing a pain management plan. I've never felt rushed during an appointment, and I feel Dr Liechty genuinely cares about my wellbeing. I would highly recommend Dr Liechty to anyone needing care for their pain management issues, and I look forward to seeing her for my care in the future.

Dr. Kara was so personable and empathetic. She was very thorough in explaining the details of my condition and made sure I understood, answering all of my questions. She was very knowledgeable in explaining my options for treatment, reasons for treatments, risks, etc. She used visuals including having me look at my MRI with her. She spent a long time with me. She was not impatient, rushed and did not talk down to me or ignore my ideas about what I thought I needed. Love her!!!

Felt listened to and my concerns were fully responded to

I was scheduled for a procedure, an injection, which would have delayed a possible surgery. It would have been nice if someone had called with this info, as it would have saved me a 3 hour drive.
