He is passionate about returning his patients to what they love doing as quickly and safely as possible.

Dr. Lessman is a team physician for the Seattle Thunderbirds hockey team and works with athletes from high schools and colleges throughout the Seattle metropolitan area. Outside of medicine, Dr. Lessman enjoys spending time with his wife and two young boys.
