What People Say About Dr. James Lesher, MD
Reply
I've been consulting with Dr. Lesher for the last few months about something that's going on for several years. He was the first doctor to approach the situation with insights that finally made sense to me according to the CT images. The surgery with him had zero post-op complications, and it was incredibly noninvasive. I find Dr. Lesher to be dedicated, knowledgeable and open minded, and I would recommend his practice hands down.

A very intelligent and well spoken doctor who explains the diagnosis and the plan to repair the problems including the surgery etc. He went out of his way to keep me informed and made sure I was surrounded by a good team. His surgical skills are 10 outta 10! I recommend him and Dr. Jeanty to anyone in need of excellent surgeons in the Bay Area.
