Patient Comments (5)
in Collinsville |
Dr. Lester was very pleasant and helpful through the entire process It turned out that my surgery was more complicated than originally thought, but Dr. Lester completed it perfectly and I feel great. No lingering pain and a very nice scar!. In addition, he was just a great guy to talk to - very pleasant and no b.s.

My procedure was completed as comfortable and professionally as could be expected for surgery. Before, during and after care was excellent. Highly recommend Dr. Lester.
in Argyle, TX |
Dr. Lester is a true professional and committed to his patience needs. From now forward he will be my only doctor for surgery.
in Saint Jo, TX |
Dr. Lester is calm, cool and very professional. He has performed 2 minor procedures on me and he is always concerned about my comfort and well being. He also did an emergency gall bladder removal for my brother in law. He always takes time to explain what what has to be done and what you can expect after the procedure. We would highly recommend Dr. Lester. He also has a great support staff.
in Ponder, TX |
I had a late night emergency appendectomy and was in a very precarious situation. We were blessed Dr. Lester was the surgeon on call when I arrived at the emergency room. I know he saved my life. He also sat with my wife in the empty waiting room and assured her I was going to be okay. His follow up was prompt on the morning after, and thorough during our office visit after release. While I hope I don't require another surgery I would not hesitate to request his services. Thank you Dr. Lester.
