WHAT PATIENTS SAY ABOUT DR. LESKO

Dr. Mark Lesko has been treating me with great skill and care for 20 years.  I have painful degenerative arthritis in my back and wouldn’t be walking up right if it wasn’t for Dr Lesko.  I’ve been told by other Doctors that I may need surgery, one in Florida said I’d be in a wheel chair in 2 years, that was 11 years ago.  I feel better and my quality of life is very good because of Dr. Lesko. I recommend him highly.

Physical Therapist

Dr. Lindsay Graham

Dr. Graham was born and raised in Austin, Texas where she grew up with two younger sisters.  She played competitive tennis, soccer, and swam on the swim team.  She studied psychology at Baylor University when she discovered her passion for physical therapy. She was fascinated by human anatomy, intrigued by the opportunity to build relationships with patients, and motivated to get people back to doing what they love.

After graduating from Baylor, she attended the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences in Austin. While keeping school as her top priority, she also participated in several school activities and led her cohorts as class representative for the full two and a half years. She graduated with her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in August of 2017 and is excited to be a part of this amazing and rewarding career. Outside the clinic, she enjoys running, hiking, going to see live music, and playing outdoors with her puppy.
