Not Impressed

She did laprascopic surgery on me and I ended up having problems from the surgery. There were very serious other issues which I will not mention- however - I do not recommend her if you are having any problems after bearing children. Money hungry for unnecessary surgery. She doesn't care about how the patient feels. Unfortunately, that is my true opinion. I do NOT recommend this doctor.

Super Doctor

I have been going to Dr. Lester for many years. I had all my children through this office and received the best medical care. I have recommended her to many people. My daughters are now going to her. I wished many times I could also use her for my primary care Physician I have full trust in her.

Excellent Doctor

I have been a patient of Dr Lester for 25 years. She helped and treated me through many years of infertilty with the greatest of bed side manner. She was always there for me no matter what time or how many times with answers to my questions. Anyone looking for a good ob/gyn or just for gyn medical care I give my highest recommendation for Dr Lester.I saw and was treated by other doctors before Dr Lester and they can't come anywhere close to the medical care and treatment I received from her.When times I was ready to give up she was right there with her knowledge and compassion to help me through it and because of all her excellent medical care I am a very proud parent of five beautiful and healthy children. So if you have to wait a few extra minutes in the office or wait a few days to get an appt. she is well worth the wait.
