I found Dr. Lester after extensive research looking for someone who can do Diep Flap Breast reconstruction. Dr. Lester came very highly recommended, and the moment I met her I knew that she was the one! She is warm, caring, and very down to earth. I had my double mastectomy and DIEP flap reconstruction a month ago, and I couldn't be happier with my experience.

Dr. Lester is very thorough and takes the time to learn about her patient's needs and plan breast cancer reconstruction in partnership with the patient's preferences.

Performed oncoplastic and breast reduction for me. A good listener, adjusts her information based on the knowledge base and interest of patient. Very responsive staff. Not a primadonna. An excellent surgeon.
