What Our Patients Say*

“Where do I start? I sat in the waiting room for maybe 5 minutes, then only waited for Dr. Lester another 2 or 3 minutes, and the exam room wasn’t even cold (and it’s December)! Dr. Lester and her assistant, Jo, were both very warm and friendly and made me feel very comfortable—which was nice since I had no idea what to expect when getting a full body skin check. Dr. Lester was very thorough, and also told me what she was going to do before hand (i.e., I’m going to look though your hair to examine your scalp). She also told me what kinds of spots she was seeing—sorry I can’t give you examples here other than freckles or age spots! The medical terminology was above me, although she did explain it all. Checkout after the exam was easy and straightforward as well. Bottom line, you can’t go wrong with Dr. Lester!”  – Molly B.

“Great care from Dr. Lester and her team! They got me in quickly when I noted I was concerned about a new skin lesion. Will definitely recommend this practice to others!”  – Terry A.

“Dr. Lester is very professional. I only waited a few minutes to be seen. She is very, very thorough, takes her time, I don’t feel rushed. I left there feeling very well cared for.”  – Sharon R.
