Dr. Lesserson is fantastic. He's thorough and genuinely cares. You will wait a good 30-45 minutes after your scheduled appointment to see him because he spends alot of time with each patient. It can be frustrating, but he is worth the wait.

I underwent a total thyroidectomy and Dr. Lesserson was my surgeon. He was very detailed in explaining what needed to be done and what the outcome, possible side effects and risks were involved in the procedure. He made me feel at ease and knowing what to expect after the surgery helped in overcoming my fears. He visited me the day after the surgery and made sure that I was comfortable and was not experiencing any pain. He scheduled me for follow up appointments and made sure that the next steps which involved an endocrinologist were not left hanging. He recommended names and again, explained that though he no longer is involved in the next steps, he was still available for any questions. I only have praises for this fine doctor and will not hesitate to recommend him.

I had recently had surgery with Dr. Lesserson to fix a deviated septum. He was very thorough in preparing me for the surgery and telling me what to expect afterwards in terms of the recovery. He was also easy to reach in the days immediately following the surgery. He was right on the money with what he said to expect. The first 7 days were rough, but once I saw him a week after the surgery for a follow-up and he removed the splints, I was able to breathe better than I can ever remember. The breathing continued to improve for two weeks after that visit and I can honestly say that I breathe better now (at the age of 43) than I did when I was a child. If you ever need work done on your nose, Dr. Lesserson is the one to see.

I have found Dr Lesserson to be a very competent, informative, concerned practitioner. His manner is always pleasant and have rarely been kept waiting a burdensome period of time. I have recommended him to others and would not hesitate to do so again.

I thought Dr. Lesserson was great. He preformed a total thyroidectomy on me 7 weeks ago. I was very apprehensive, as I had never undergone surgery before. He was very reasuring, spent time explaining what would be done, and the follow up care was excellent. He spent as much time as needed with me and the "waiting" to see him is worth every minute. Also would like to mention, my scar looks great, even after such a short time.
