Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Lester is one of the best, and his track record of 40+ years in the industry shows for it. Do not let the people hiding behind internet anonymity deter you. He truly knows the ins and outs of everything otolaryngological. 74 years old and still as sharp and in the game as somebody half his age!...more

3 phone calls, 2co pays for visits and a test- and 0 results from this dr. I walk around suffering from throat problems bc I don't have the time to take off work AGAIN to pick up results since the staff won't call me back with them. Need to find a new doctor who will follow up
