Biography

Rachael Lester, MD, is a pediatrician. Her professional interests include children with special health care needs and children who are refugees, immigrants or in foster care.

Genuine and relaxed, she values her patients’ time and sets the tone to create a comfortable office environment. She is passionate about caring for underserved children, children who have special needs, and those in the foster care system. Speaking Spanish allows her to better connect with many of her patients.

In her spare time, she enjoys fostering dogs. Having fostered hundreds of dogs, she often fosters 10 dogs at a time. Also, she enjoys being active and goes to the YMCA for spinning, running and strength training.

“I love working with families to provide the best care to their children. Primary care is very much needed, and I love being the first line to see a child.” – Rachael Lester, MD
