Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Lesher is excellent at what he does. This is the 2nd time in 2yrs he has done a steroid injection in my neck. He is extremely professional, thorough and polite. The whole team there is great and always make a not so fun procedure the best it can be.

During my visit Dr. Lesher listened very closely to the problems I was having. He did not recommend any treatments until he had results from my MRI. This was so important because the MRI was the only way he could have made the right decision about the cause of my painful situation. I highly recommend him!

Dr Lesher is extremely knowledgeable about spine issues and injections and very caring. I’ve has a number of spinal injections over the years from a number of doctors and he is the best, by far. So are his nurses. I highly recommend him.
