My mother has been under Dr Lessler's care for 3 months and the neglect is astounding. My mother has post polio syndrome, about which there is little information other than that which is published by Polio Echo. When we provided information about other post polio patients with symptoms of an identical nature to my mother's, Dr Lessler would not even take the documents. Nor did she review the tests my mother had already had, trying to prescribe them again. The goal seems to be billing Medicare

Awful, our first appointment was March she was over an hour late for the appointment and offered no apology. She was not prepared had not looked at the file and we felt like it was a waste of our time. We agreed to do an overnight sleep study due to inconclusive results from the at home. Went back for the follow up and Dr. again was over an hour behind, office staff did not communicate this until I asked and then acted like it was funny. Office staff is not very skilled as well...off brand

I had a 12:30 appointment and wasn't called to a room until 2:45. When in the room the doctor did not even listen to my symptoms before telling me You're young and you don't smoke I'm sure the nodule isn't cancerous and walked out. Terrible experience. The staff was very friendly, however the overall experience was awful and the doctor was incredibly rude.

Very disorganized. Computers have been down for weeks! Can't get a receipt or a follow up EKG scheduled. Scheduler has a stack of papers in front of her but doesn't seem to get anything scheduled. It's been weeks. Doctor is curt and short in her responses. Looking for a new pulmonologist.
