      Dr. Lessen displays superior skills and interpersonal focus; Dr. Lessen successfully treated my father for ~2+ years for mantle cell lymphoma. Dr. Lessen and his staff demonstrated deeply personal and professional care for my father--and mother during this time. Dr. Lessen even called several [!] times after my father was receiving hospice care at home--and after his passing. Dr. Lessen is not only a sharp, brilliant and successful Oncologist--he's also incredibly thoughtful and attentive to personal detail. I'm VERY thankful my dad was under Dr. Lessen's care, and would highly recommend you consult with him to see if he might help you!

      My family has known Dr. Lessen for over 13 years. He is the most compassionate and competent doctor. We are blessed that he was the doctor that took care of both my father and my mother. I highly recommend him for his bedside manner knowledge and professionalism. He is a true angel on this earth.

      Dr Lesson and each and every member of his staff that I have had the pleasure to meet has been so professional,kind,respectful and offers the absolute best level of care you can expect. They collaborate to determine best way to treat the patient which to me is invaluable. We came from a previous oncology/hematology office that lacked all of the qualities that this offices excels in. As the patient caregiver I am grateful to the entire staff for their superb treatment and compassion.

      Dr Lessen is the only physician who took the time to explain to me, via telephone ... long distance... the reality of my dads illness. Qualified of course but my family received a lot more from this man.

      My dad has had stage 4 esophageal cancer for 3 years. Dr. Lessen has kept him alive for longer than we all expected. He treats each patient with caring and respect, and strategizes treatment carefully, taking the patient's input seriously. He is relentless in trying different treatments and combinations, and takes numerous tests and scans to track what's working and what isn't. My dad has 100% faith in Dr. Lessen, which is extremely important in his survival.
