Dr. Lester is a very caring and wonderful doctor. My mom is 93 and has quite a few health issues. Dr. Lester listens to every word she says and takes wonderful care of my mom. She thinks outside the box and I would highly recommend her.

Outstanding physician. She really was able to help coordinate care and get my mom off unnecessary medications that were actually hurting her. Easy to talk to and very caring. Highly recommended.

Dr. Lester was a god send to my mother Beverly Burke. My mother spent more of her days the end of 2015 and the beginning of 2016 in the hospital. My mother was experiencing kidney failure, heart failure and had too many other complications to name here. When my mother needed a rehab to go to that also could give her dialysis, Dr. Lester was instrumental in finding a wonderful rehab for her that provided exactly what my mother needed, intensive physical therapy that got her walking again.

Dr. Lester is the on-staff doctor at Sunharbor Manor in Roslyn. How I would describe her is unavailable, uninterested, inefficient and indifferent.

Dr. Lester is smart and caring. She phones you personally to see how you are doing or to give you further information. She is so sweet and answers all of your questions completely. I recommend her highly!
