My wife and I have been going to Dr. Lessin for a loooong time. He is thorough and quite willing to explain in depth his assessments and recommendations, explain test results, etc.. Because he doesn't hurry with patients he is often running late (and staying late himself) so people on tight schedules may get frustrated. My advice is: bring a book or a tablet and put up with it, and you'll get all the time you need for your care when it's your turn.

Absolutely terrible in every possible way. I made an appointment weeks in advance and took off work for that they cancelled just before and wouldn't write me my necessary perception if I sent him my old doctors information. Then the wait to see this sham of a doctor when I rescheduled was over 2 hours and they said that this is a normal wait time. The building is decrepit and the care is terrible.

I have been with Dr. Lessin for more than 10 years. He's the kind of physician rarely found any longer He's the most thorough, caring, and conscientious doctor I have experienced (and I'm 85). He takes as much time as needed to do in-office analyses and explain issues and answer questions. As a result he's often late for appointments but bless him for the reasons! Equally valuable he's known by and knows the bestl specailists in every field. I'd give him ten stars if I cuould.
