Dr. Lester keeps it real! He’s kind, gentle, and you can tell he cares. Every appointment, he has sat patiently while I ran through a litany of questions related to our first born son - he answers every one with a calm ease that assures me he has listened, that he understands where I’m coming from, and that he knows what he’s talking about. Dr. Lester has taken so much of the anxiety out of being a first time parent of a premature baby, and we can’t thank him enough for being such a trustworthy provider capable of helping us navigate all the “firsts” in this new chapter of our life.

Dr. Lester's Reply –
Thank you for your great review.
My son has been going to Dr. Lester for several years. As he leaves his teens, I think we are both struggling with having to transition him out of this practice to to a new primary care physician. Dr. Lester is patient, honest and spends a great deal of time really listening to both the parents and the child. He works hard to give constructive, meaningful advice and to really understand each patient's complaint. I would highly recommend him to my friends with young kids and teens.
