Patient Comments (1)

Dr. Lester is very easy to talk to takes the time to explain what is going on and if he sees something that needs attention that he is not an expert at he knows who is and refers you immediately. I feel that I am alive today because of his early diagnosis and referral I could not be more satisfied...more
