    How was your appointment with Dr. Lechin?

    Jul 16, 2021
    I was very sick, could hardly eat or sleep bcz of throwing up blood & other grossness. ( I had a lapband causing me misery). My primary care physician thought I may have lung cancer bcz of a large spot in my lungs. I've never smoked & I was shocked. She recommended I see a specialist. I did my research & found Dr. Alex Lechin was very highly rated & in my network. I saw Dr. Lechin & he collected a sample of my spit and sent it off to be tested. My lungs were infected with about 5 really gross infections. He put me on antibiotics & saw me several times. It took months to clear up. I loved his personal manner & really caring nature. He recommended I have the lapband removed. I highly recommend him to anyone with lung isss.
