Not much to say but he's the guy to go to. Really wants to help you and always makes himself available. Great bedside manner and very patient.
in Gibbstown, NJ |
Dr. Lesser corrected my deviated septum and removed two small cysts in my nasal passage in July of 2015. Dr. Lesser and his staff were nothing but professional, knowledgeable, caring and focused on my needs. The facility where my procedure was done was clean and the atmosphere was friendly. The staff at the facility possessed the same attributes as did Dr. Lesser's staff. The procedure went well, I recovered quickly and have experienced no problems. I am approaching 1 year since the procedure.
