Outstanding!
in Chattanooga, TN |
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.

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.
