Very thoughtful and helpful when other MDs were not. Spent considerable amount of time explaining the problems and offering recommendations. Very frank and honest about the expectations of available treatment options.Definitely will recommend. Wait time in office was long but worth it!!!
in White Plains, NY |
I took both my elderly parents to see Dr. Lesser. He gave absolutely NO relief, nor clarity about their painful conditions through the months of bi-weekly visits. He kept sending them to outside tests & blood work to no gain. Even the Hematologist eventually questioned what he was looking for after numerous eval. visits. Finally found another Dr. and received immediate relief. Worst - ambulation was difficult for them yet many trips & NO help! Plenty of Hubris however. wouldn't recmd.
