Amazing Dr.! The staff and nurses were very friendly and attentive. Doctor did more than just a checkup but explained why we were checking certain things based on my demographics rather than just checking things based off of a generic visit.Highly recommend and will definitely use as my primary care physician from now on!

I enjoyed my visit to the doctors' office... who says that? Me that's who... Dr. Lester was efficient, detailed and most of all kind. I feel like a participant in my medical care and not a spectator. I was informed andall the things I should be doing at this stage in life for my health and chronic illnesses. I will definitely continue with Dr. Lester as my primary care physician.

Dr. Lester showed great interest in my concerns. It took me a while to find a Dr. with great bedside manners, outside of the one I previously had in Mansfield. Thanks zocdoc and Dr. Lester, we need more doctor's like you in the world.

She was nice and informative. However, when I got my results from my tests it said one thing online and when I spoke to someone at her office I was told something completely different. Then when I called again to clarifyI was told a 3rd version. I ended up being so confused about what my next step should be to resolve my issues and decided to not move forward with her assistance.

My first visit with Dr. Lester, as a new patient, was wonderful and more than I had anticipated for an annual physical visit. I appreciate her holistic approach to medicine and her desire for her patients to be completely well; mind,body and spirit. She is patient, intuitive and a great listener. I think I have finally found a PCP that I will stick with.
