Lessne attended Nova High S chool , a m a g net school i n Florida. Already with a strong sense of his career ambitions, he applied for and was accepted into a seven-year medical program at Boston University. After graduating from Boston University, he landed at Mount Sinai Medical Center, where he completed his residency, then completed a fellowship at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. While he says he enjoyed his time in Boston and New York, he wanted to live and work in a place that was closer to his family and friends. When Lessne interviewed with Gastro Health, he says that "meeting the partners sealed the deal." In his discussions with the practice's physicians, he learned that they do community work in area hospitals, where they take care of patients whether they have insurance or not. Patients who are treated at Gastro Health are essentially visiting a patient-centered medical home for their digestive system. If a patient needs a procedure or a surgery, they can often be seen the next day. There is a pharmacy service, a radiological service and fusion center on site, so if a patient has an acute problem, it can be treated then and there. Gastro Health has more than two dozen locations in South Florida, employing close to 100 gastroenterologists. According to physician recruitment manager A lex is Feldman, "there is no shortage of need for physicians in the Fort Lauderdale area." Gastro Hea lth is recr u iti ng gastroenterologists in Palm Beach County, the Naples/Fort Myers area and Broward County.

Despite the organization's corporate structure, she a dd s, e a ch c a re center "maintains an individual culture and family that makes each office feel like home." Many physicians in the region e n c o u n t e r t h i s w e l c o m i n g atmosphere not only in the office, but also saturated in the culture and communities of Florida, particularly in the lively and sophisticated downtown areas. Says Feldman: "In my opinion, the best part of southeast Florida is the diversity. Fort Lauderdale and Miami draw people from all over the world, which has created a community where all are welcome." "Greater Fort Lauderdale is a very welcoming and diverse destination," agrees Jessica Savage, vice president of public relations for the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau. "We embrace residents and visitors of every culture, origin and sexual identity. Our area is also very cosmopolitan. We have an extraordinary culinary scene, an eclectic mix of foods, and top chefs putting creative twists on their dishes." Locals and visitors can relax along the New River during Sunday's outdoor jazz brunches, taking in the beautiful weather and water views, or stroll down Las Olas Boulevard and experience shopping, galleries, restaurants and nightlife. Popular annual events include the Las Olas
