Philosophy of Care

"What I would do for my own family?" asks Dr. Lester. "That's what I do for my patients. People in our department are among the best. They're really strong physicians I'm happy to be around. We can take care of most problems that come into our office and we're connected to the best academic centers in the region, so we're a good conduit for patients who need a higher level of service."
