He has taken his own children with him on medical missions, where he provides free care and doctor education. Taking the fear out of office visits is also important to Dr. Lessin, who counts among his talents juggling and making balloon animals. "I enjoy having fun at the office and making the child's visit as pleasurable as possible." That's what Dr. Lessin loves about The Children's Medical Group. CMG is all about kids, and all our staff members excel at what they do. Nine "local" offices offer comprehensive medical services from birth through adolescence. Need a same-day appointment? We've got that. Responsive emergency intervention or superlative care for chronic illness? We're all over that, too. Caring for kids is our life. And we wouldn't have it any other way. Dr. Lessin loves to get kids laughing, to help remove the fear and make the visit more fun. Herschel Knows Kids.
