[00:00:03.520] My name is Terry Blevins. [00:00:08.960] And I'm Tommy Blevins, and we're both patients of Dr. Lesley. [00:00:12.400] I came a few years ago because I was having trouble with both hands [00:00:15.840] in the base of the thumb with the pain, and I started out having injections. [00:00:21.600] And I pretty much was the same way. [00:00:24.160] I had mostly my left hand at the base of my thumb [00:00:28.800] and Dr. Lesley treated that with injections for arthritis. [00:00:33.920] Terry and I both would do those injections [00:00:36.920] oh, about every six months, maybe [00:00:39.840] and then it just got to the point [00:00:41.680] where the injections weren't doing any good. [00:00:44.240] So that's what prompted us to go ahead [00:00:47.120] and decide to go ahead and have the surgery. [00:00:50.400] He was great about explaining to me exactly what the surgery was. [00:00:54.760] He even took a piece of paper out with the skeleton of the hand, [00:00:59.080] diagnose, drew it out for me exactly what he was going to do, [00:01:03.120] which is exactly what I like to see a doctor do [00:01:05.800] 'cause he put it in words where I could understand it. [00:01:09.120] Four weeks later, [00:01:10.080] we started doing the therapy on it and I've been really good since then. [00:01:14.640] I have very little pain in my hand. [00:01:16.920] It's way better than it was previous. [00:01:20.200] Just love Dr. Lesley and the job that he did for me. [00:01:23.560] What impressed me most about Dr. Lesley's office is the people. [00:01:27.120] They're friendly, they're always answering any questions we have. [00:01:32.680] Dr. Lesley has been great with us. [00:01:35.360] I never have a problem getting in when I make an appointment. [00:01:38.520] I don't have to wait forever to get in. [00:01:40.960] I can usually get in within a week or two and just like I said, the friendliness, [00:01:46.560] they're real friendly up front and in the back, everyone's friendly. [00:01:51.680] Looking back on the decision I made to have the surgery done [00:01:56.600] and Terry having her surgery done, I would just like to say, Dr. Lesley, [00:02:03.800] we really like you. [00:02:05.240] We like your staff. [00:02:06.560] You've always been so good, so friendly, so courteous to us. [00:02:10.440] It's just been really good to work with. [00:02:13.320] I would not want to go see another hand doctor. [00:02:16.720] As a matter of fact, I recommend people to come see [00:02:19.520] Dr. Lesley when I'm asked about my hands.
