I was Dr.Lessmeier patient 15 years ago when I found out that I had a major heart Valve problem. I had no insurance at the time and when I told him that I did not have insurance I could see the compaction on his face. He later arranged for me to get a pace maker donated for me. I am now living in Texas and trying to find out if Humana would let me make an appointment with him soon in Spokane. I love Dr.Lessmeier.

Dr. Lessmeier was the only cardiologist (I saw two before seeing him), who would treat my condition. Over the eight years I have been seen by him and his staff I have always been treated with care and compassion. I can't say enough kind things about him.

I was terrified to have a cardiac ablation, but Dr. Lessmeier and his team were awesome! I felt that I was in good hands and the procedure went like a dream (oral sedation is wonderful!) 3 small incisions in my groin for the catheters and hopefully my tachycardia is gone! I had the best care at Kootenai Hospital. Many thanks to Sarah, RN for ensuring I felt little and for making sure I woke up and to Lisa, RN (long blonde hair) who was my post-procedure nurse who made me feel safe, and fed me!

Dr. Lessmeier has been my cardiologist for over 15 years. He is the most compassionate and skilled physician I have ever known. He has saved my life more than once with his surgical skills and knowledge of medicine. but more importantly, he pays close attention to the quality of my life. Dr. Lessmeier considers my lifestyle goals when developing a care plan. Above all, he takes the time to provide medical care to less fortunate people in third world countries. He is an inspiration to me.

Outstanding care and bedside manner! Dr. Lessmeier and his staff make what normally would not be a positive experience much more pleasant with their warm treatment. Dr. Lessemier is great. He is more than willing to answer any questions and provides meaningful positive input and suggestions for managing my condition.
