Verified Patient Reviews
I have visited Dr Lester 3 times now. I don't know why I continued to torture myself after the 2nd visit, but...you learn. His office in Maplewood has an absolutely terrible parking situation, and Dr. Lesters bedside manner leaves a LOT to be desired. Don't go here if you want a Doctor that explains things to you without pushing the idea that you could obtain a life threatening illness and die for simple issues. His nursing staff is fantastic though. Fantastic. I wish them all the best and really wish I could see them elsewhere.
He's very attentive and thorough... Will continue to follow up with him
Dr.Lester was so sweet and very knowledgeable on all things related to his field. He was very comforting and his bedside manner was superb. He was also very gentle with my procedure and quick! The wait time was a little longer than i would have preferred but once I got to see the doctor, he was absolutely worth the wait. Thank you Dr.Lester!
Dr Arthur Lester was professional, he explained his diagnosis with an anology and made sure, I understood the diagnosis
Dr. Lester is a great doctor. He is knowledgeable and caring about his patients. However, his office staff is unprofessional, unorganized, and uncaring. I had to call numerous times in order to have a revised prescription faxed to the medical facility. In the end, Dr. Lester's office never sent the revised prescription to the medical imaging office and I ended up canceling my appointment with Dr. Lester and booking with a different doctor.
Very nice guy and very thorugh
Great profesional with positive attitude.
My review is likely biased by the very lengthy wait time on my one visit - at least an hour plus a good 20 min in one of his exam rooms waiting while he was caring for another patient. Dr. Lester treated my issue effectively without any discomfort. He is very down-to-earth with a shake of the hand and a "Nice to meet you." I'd probably go back to him, if necessary, although I wish that the wait had been quite a bit shorter!
