What People Say About Dr. Lester Blair, MD
Reply
I saw Dr. Blair for what turned out to be a bad case of pneumonia. I emailed him through Cornell connect and he did got back to me until my referring doctor contacted him. I spoke to him and he told me to get in touch the following week. I emailed twice ad again I never heard back. He also got back test results that he never posted on Cornell connect and he never called me with them.
