Dr. Hester is very down to earth and very respectful. He likes to joke and keep things relaxed, which immediately puts you at ease. He doesn't believe in surgery without exhausting all other avenues first. I have actually already referred him to someone I work with. If I have another injury, I will return to Dr. Hester.
I appreciate you sharing your great experience and I'm glad to hear your doing well. We strive to provide our patients with excellent care at Lexington Clinic. Thank you for letting us care for you. -Dr. Peter Hester

Dr. Hester is a fantastic surgeon. He repaired both of my shoulders. Very good results. Awesome personality.

Dr. Hester was very concerned and interested in my condition. The initial exam was quite detailed and his assessment was certain. He quickly outlined the continued evaluations needed and scheduled them quickly. Once his diagnosis was confirmed, he explained in great detail the cause and damage to the shoulder. He then outlined the proper procedure for correcting the shoulder. He was extremely honest and straight forward about the pain and recovery required. Excellent post surgery followup
