“Over the past few years, the staff of Archbold Memorial Hospital have been fortunate to have the addition of Dr. Johnny Belenchia to our Pulmonary services. I have met so many of Dr. Belenchia's patients and family members who are very gracious and thankful for the care that he provides. Patients tell me over and over again about Dr. Belenchia's ability to take time to explain the reason for treatment, the change in treatment and alternative treatments during their care. The patients always have a smile on their face when they speak of him and tell me stories of their visit with Dr. Belenchia. Sometimes the patients or family members will tell me a comical way in which Dr. Belenchia explained what was going on with their illness. The patients and family members like his approach to their care. From a staff members view, Dr. Belenchia is very kind to all of the staff. He is very educational and helps the members of the Nursing team and Respiratory Team understand an advanced approach to Pulmonary care. I think he is well liked by families, visitors, the staff and physicians of Archbold Hospital.”

“Dr. Belenchia goes above and beyond the usual care of any physician. I see a lot of Dr. Belenchias patients in the PFT Lab and all over the hospital with Respiratory Care. If a patient speaks of Dr. Belenchia they always have a smile on their face when telling me their stories of their visits with him. Every patient that has ever met Dr. Belenchia that I have seen has told me they think he is the most wonderful Dr. they have ever had. They tell me Dr. Belenchia spends a lot of time with them and will spend extra time researching conditions and need for medications to help the patient with their changing needs. Dr. Belenchia is also good to the employees and staff of the hospital too. I appreciate everything he does for my patients to make them happier and to keep the people of our community coming back to our hospital.”

“Dr. B is a great teacher and an excellent resource for basically anything medicine-related for the nursing staff. It is so nice to have that as a relatively newer nurse, and I have learned so much from him over the past 7 months that I have been on day shift. He is very much appreciated!”
