Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lessow "Dr. Lessow is a strong proponent of taking the time to educate her patients on their symptoms; she feels her patients' understanding of their medical problems is just as vital to their wellness as the medical and surgical treatment she can provide. She is a big proponent of visual aids and illustrations which stems from her artistic background. Dr. Lessow feels strongly that continuity of care is essential to your total health. She and her staff work closely with your internists and other specialists to gain a more complete understanding of your health issues. If you need further care outside the scope of this practice, Dr. Lessow can help you find the healthcare provider who she would trust to evaluate the problem, or the complementary treatment she feels may help."
