Dr. Liechty is amazing and caring. I dropped my neurologist to see Liechty for my botox. She actually listens and acknowledges my issues

This was my first in-person visit with Kara Liechty after seeing her via Zoom appointments in the past. Kara was very warm and greeted both my wife and I. She was very thorough during the appointment, and answered all my questions and concerns. She also believed I would benefit from seeing a physical therapist due to back and neck pain and referred me to one within her practice. I had always been very impressed with Kara during our Zoom appointments, and my wife and I were even more impressed after seeing her in person. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends, and I plan on continuing to see her for my pain management.

Well Dr. Liechty is very nice and understanding. From what I see and feel when I go see her is that she shows a lot of interest in her patients. By the way she is very beautiful and understanding as a doctor and person.

She was kind and thorough and listened to my concerns. While giving me injections up my leg she did a breathing, counting exercise which made the injections feel less painful. Also my anxiety was much improved.

Very kind, easy to talk to, energetic. We had to cover a great deal, so it will be nice to have a follow up to make sure we are on the same page.

She actually listened to what I had to say about my back pain and explained several different ways to help treat it, including medication and getting a new MRI and having a back surgeon look at the new information to see what he thought some options might be.
