What People Say About Dr. Nigel Lester, MD
Reply
I would NEVER refer this "dr" to anyone. He's extremely unprofessional- doesn't return patient's calls after stating he would to his staff on 3 diff occas. during very painful and dire circumstances. He's confrontational and contentious, rather than being empathetic. He doesn't listen in a kind manner, but rather talks incessantly & in condescending tones defending his position, which he made based upon 1 session and very limited knowledge. I've seen others successfully, but he's far below par.
