I could not be more disappointed with Dr. Lesley. My surgery was supposed to be "minor". Because he did not listen to me when I was concerned about how it was healing, I developed osteomylitis. This required a second surgery and IV antibiotics. It is now over 3 months since the initial surgery and I still don't have full use of my finger.

I have had several successful hand surgeries. He’s a great doctor and surgeon. However, some members of his staff are not reaching out to patients when patient appointments are cancelled. I was not notified when my last appointment was cancelled and I showed up to find out he was out of the office and they had left messages for me. Neither my cell phone nor house phone had any messages. I dismissed it as a mistake, until I referred a friend. Her first appointment was cancelled and they called her. She arrived at her second appointment today to learn they had called her shortly before her arrival. Might want to call the office just before you leave home. It’s sad for a really good doctor to not have a staff that seeks to be more supportive.

Dr. Lesley operated on my finger. He and his staff were excellent. They were all very friendly and competent. He took time to explain everything about my injury and listened to my concerns.

Thank you Dr. Lesley for a wonderful experience. Also his office staff and nurses are wonderful and the wait time was the shortest I’ve ever experienced. A+ in my books!!

Dr. Lesley really listened to my concerns. He clearly and specifically explained my options in a way that was easy to understand, and he explained cost options, as well as what his overall recommendation would be in the end. He presented it in a way that let you know that if you wanted to go a different route with treatment, he would respect it, and didn't push or make you feel like you had to follow his advice.

Poor communication in office. Surgery scheduled for three weeks. After three visits and various failed interventions. Showed up at noon Baylor Oakmount outpatient only to find out it was cancelled. Last minute trout in patient better. Nurse blamed office; Dr’s office blamed Baylor. Less than two weeks later, another surgeon completed outpatient surgery, no problem
