25/07/13 5 5 5 5 I've seen this doctor many times and have always been impressed. He has a good staff and I always get to see him rather than an assistant. I've had moles removed by him and there's no scars. He also cured a rash right away. He cares a lot and knows a lot.  Respond

23/11/11 5 5 5 5 I've lived in the desert for 18 years. I heard about Dr. Lesnik from friends as the best dermatologist in the Coachella Valley, and he is. I've been going to him for about 15 years. You should ignore the planted comments by competitors or disgruntled x-employees. The web is full of those! He is the most knowledgeable and caring doctor I have. His staff is wonderful. He answers questions, returns his calls and gives you the time you need, but still manages to be on time. He's taken out a few skin cancers on me, and I can't even find the scars. He quickly cured a few rashes too. Look at his credentials in the phone book or on his website. I recommend him strongly.

23/11/10 4 2 2 3 went to have moles checked and area burnt off by nose. Zapped the wrong area. Mistook an old scar for the spot. When I told him he got my scar and not the right area he said that was ok it will flatten the scar out.I hope when it heals it is not worse then before as I scar easily. It would then be aa big deal. I will not be a return patient needless to say.

04/09/09 5 5 4 4 I have been seeing Dr Lesnik since 2003. I have found him to be well qualified and he has quite effectively taken care of all of my concerns. I am troubled by the poor rating given him by one person and find their experience shocking and hard to believe. Anyone can say anything so we must keep that in mind when considering posted comments. Would Dr Lesnik have a healthy practice if he was not well respected? B Butterton, La Quinta

05/07/09 2 1 1 2 I went to this doctor multiple times to get two facial moles removed. The first three appointments I waited almost two hours and left. The fourth time I waited over an hour but was finally called in. I waited another 45 minutes in the exam room when a nurse finally came in. She uncapped a needle on a syringe, drew medication, and set the still uncapped needle directly on an object laying on a counter, therefore contaminating it. I asked her to replace it and explained why. The doctor finally came in, deadened an area on the side of my nose and above the lip. As he was removing the nose mole, he slipped with the scalpel and sliced the tip of my nose. He then used a device with a hot tip to caurterize the wound then decided he was going to burn, without any warning, a visible vein lower on my nose. The problem was this vein was outside the deadened area resulting in a great deal of pain.  See Responses
