"Dr. Less took great care of me during two high risk pregnancies, and delivered both babies himself. Very thorough. I also had to have a pelvic surgery (not OB related) and while my general practitioner wanted to wait and see if the cyst/mass would go away, Dr. Less took care of the problem right away. Would highly recommend."
