What a great place. Very much dedicated to their patients. They take such good care of EVERYONE. This doctor and his staff are truly what the public expects from medical care. Many practices could learn from this group. Still very compassionate about patient care. Your NOT just a number. Promise.

Very caring staff; opened my arteries; feel wonderful. Recommend him to anyone
in Chattanooga, Tennessee |
Dr. LeSar is absolutely amazing. After seeing another provider that gave a very grim prognosis, Dr. LeSar was able to perform the surgery with ease. He is one of the most compassionate individuals we have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. I would recommend him to anyone that is in need of any type of vascular procedure. He is truly a blessing.

We think Dr LeSar is the most considerate doctor and did make us feel like he was above us. He took time to explain everything and we are very thankful for him. He makes you feel like somebody and he cares.
in Harrison, TN |
He came highly recommended to me by two of my doctors. His manner is very pleasant and he explains everything to you. Will spend as much time as you need. I like all of his office and surgery staff. He does all his own testing and surgeries at his office location. I appreciate the fact that one does not have to go to? the hospital for his testing and procedures. His staff seems to enjoy working for him.

Dr. LeSar takes pride in his office environment and the care of his patients
in Chattanooga, TN |
Dr. LeSar performed surgery on me to correct a rare aneurism. He was kind, honest, and so thorough that he even sat and sketched a picture of what it looked like and how he corrected it. He took the time to answer all of my questions and explain my condition in detail. I couldn't imagine a better doctor than Dr. LeSar. Every day I'm thankful that he extended my life.
Dr. Lasar is wonderful. Takes time to listen to you and answer questions. Very thorough exam. He is focused on helping find solutions for your medical problem. Would highly recommend Dr. LaSar.

I had 2 procedures and both were a well orchestrated exhibit of team work with highly trained staff.
Very courteous in explaining procedures. Friendly staff. Excellent physician
