What People Say About Dr. Mitchell Lester, MD
Reply
Im giving them one star simply because of this: My daughter has been suffering from lack of sleep because and my wife and I have no idea why. We have been to the pediatrician and the pediatrician couldn't figure it out. So we called this place and confirmed they take anthem blue Cross Blue shield. Well, what do you know, we show up, and they took our card, and then denied us service because we took obamacare. Worst of all, they whispered it like we were less of a person. Watch out.

Dr. Lester was awesome at not only explaining to me what was going on with me (I had an adult onset allergy, an allergy to something I had never been allergic to in my first 48 years of life) but also took his time walk me through how to properly use an epi-pen if needed and the proper steps to take after it was injected. He was professional, caring and HE LISTENED!
