Never would refer anyone to Dr. Lesser's office. I made an appointment over 7 weeks ago and the day before my appointment 7 weeks later, his office called to tell me they dont accept my health insurance. That is 7 weeks wasted and delay to begin treatment! I have to now 7 weeks later, begin all over looking for a neurologist!

Stephen Richards in Titusville, FL – Jul 02, 2017
After my 1st visit with Dr. Lesser I was so encouraged that I had finally found someone who I felt genuinely wanted to help me & the excruciating pain I was experiencing. That feeling was very short lived. His office staff is one of the rudest I have ever encountered. I spent 2 weeks leaving messages for Dr. Lesser/his nurse or nurse practitioner to please return my call - I have yet to get a call back. This is totally unacceptable. Needless to say I have moved on!

Dr. Lesser is a knowledgeable neurologist who always has time to listen to my medical concerns and offers manageable options for my treatment. I visit the office for annual appointments and in between Dr. lesser and his staff are always available to answer questions on the phone or by e-mail. I have been a patient of his for 15 years and I am very satisfied with the compassionate medical care that he provides.
