NO STARS should be given to this Doctor. Receptionist are great , but Dr. Lester should be working at the DMV on how rude and miserable he is. He takes into no consideration the pain, you as a patient, are feeling. He does not allow you to state your opinion and is highly unprofessional. You...more

Absolutely horrible experience. Would not have continued to see him if I have any choice but due to workman's comp I was unable to change. He was not willing to really listen to just about anything I had to say. Completely rushed me through. If you can, go somewhere else
