I can't tell you all just how pleased I was with Dr. Lesem on our visit today. There is definitely an unpleasant stigma which exists in the psychiatry division of medicine, which is that a Psychiatrist simply wants to talk a very few minutes with you, take a few notes and send you on your way with a prescription. My visit with Dr. Lessen was completely opposite of that stigma, as he went far and above my expectations. He's not only intelligent; he actually listens and engages by asking questions to learn about his patient. He also believes in true conversation banter, not in a judgmental manner, but in a way that he wants you to understand how he views general life situations. It's a true gift in the fast-paced "in-and-out" world which psychiatry practices tend to lean. In order to begin to mend whatever the ailment is, a physician must dig in to learn what he needs to do in order to help, and Dr. Lesem is not afraid to explain, in practical terms, what his approaches and goes for his patients are. If you are looking for an uptight "Academic" type, then he is probably not suited for you...but in my humble opinion, that is not the type of physician you should want when it comes to matters of the mind, as you're not seeming him to deal with a sprained ankle or the common cold. Most importantly to note: we know this world is growing more and more judgmental, particularly about depression and other psychiatric issues one might be facing. You need not fear an open/honest dialogue with Dr. Lesem because he doesn't allow reality to interfere with his therapeutic approach. In order for there to be true healing, one must not fear full disclosure, otherwise you're wasting your time. I went into my visit (it was my first session with him) feeling down and not hopeful, but I left with a positive outlook with a renewed sense of ambition about truly tackling my issues. A big thumbs up for Dr. Lesem, his professional courtesy, and giving me there was true understanding and empathy sitting across from me. Thank you Dr. Lesem!
