Dr. Lescault was very professional yet very personable. He explained everything in a matter that a lay person could understand. I am scheduled for surgery next week and I don’t feel uncomfortable in the least. He has answered all my questions and I feel like I’m in good hands.

I was very lucky to find Dr Lescault. He is very thorough and provided information and treatments in a way that is clear and understandable especially for folks with little knowledge about orthopedic language. He listened attentively to my description of symptoms. My first visit was just before I was traveling to France and he injected both of my knees to ensure I would have a pain free experience. Most recently I have had difficulty with my shoulder after a fall. He performed the necessary surgery and I have been more able to function as a result. He is a man of few words,but at my first visit he asked me where I was from. When I told him he said" my best friend is from there...we both said "small world". I have recommended him to friends who were in need of ortho care.

My visit was less than 1 Star. Dr Lescault should be ashamed of himself for the lack of quality patient care provided by his NP Lawson. First off, he never introduced himself to me & never reviewed any treatment plan.. I had to ask the attendant what my treatment plan was, if I should go to rehab, should I continue icing my knee, what if any medications I should use, what my diagnosis was & if I had a tear or not!!! Imagine having to send the attendant out to keep asking the NP all these questions? If this is Dr Lescault idea of Health Care, run for your life before seeing him!!!

Dr. Lescault performed total knee replacement for me with great results. He obviously cares about his patients. He is very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain the processes so that you feel comfortable with the treatment and procedure. His staff is great. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Lescault to anyone needing orthopedic surgery.

Dr. Lescault is a brilliant surgeon. He did a partial shoulder replacemnt on me after I had fallen and broken the ball in my right shoulder. One year has passed and after I have gone through extensive physical therapy at Dosher Wellness Center, I have recovered about 99.9% of my mobility back. My scar is barely visable. I would highly recommend Dr. Lescault to anyone facing orthopedic surgery. M.A. Van Meter
