Dr Lester communicates very well with me . This was an over the phone appointment and it was just as helpful as being in person . Our conversation went as expected because I am following his advice. He made some suggestions to improve my medical condition on a daily basis which were helpful. He.was up speed on lab work, medications etc and had communicated with my urologist so it was a very good appointment.

Dr. Lester is not only an excellent doctor but an amazing person. He displays compassion and understanding. I’ve been going to his practice for 4 years now and never once was he pushy or made me feel any kind of pressure. We make decisions together about my health care. His staff is equally friendly, courteous and caring.

I have a classic case of “white coat syndrome “. Here I am with Cancer talking to a guy who I am going to literally put my life in his hands. After our 30 minute visit I left a feeling that this guy knows what he’s taking about and that I’m going to all right. In addition, my first impression was that this is a good guy who seems passionate about his work and the well being of his patience. Very positive experience.

When I was diagnosed with Advanced Prostate Cancer. I first went to the Mayo Clinic for treatment, and when they saw that I was from Orlando, Fl. they immediately recommended Dr. Lester, whose offices were very close to my home. Dr. Lester treated me for my Advanced Prostate Cancer using surgery and radiation. Today I remain cancer free because of Dr. Lesters expertise and care. I still see Dr. Lester on a regular basis and consider him a good friend as well as an excellent Doctor. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing first class cancer care!
