Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Lester is extremely kind and intuitive. He accurately assessed my situation without wasting a lot of time, was compassionately direct with recommendations, and basically helped me change my life for the better. I’ve been to several other doctors whose only solution was to push pills at me. Dr Lester worked with me to make lasting improvements.

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.
