Doctor Lesser has been my neurologist for 14 years. He has been great! He was the only doctor that could figure out my type of epilepsy. It is temporal lobe epilepsy. He put me on Lamictal that worked for a few years. I got pregnant with twins and the hormones brought the seizures back. A couple of years later I had brain surgery. He has been a great support and very dependable. I am still on Lamictal but have only had two seizure since I had the surgery 8 years ago.
