About Us

Family Medicine for McHenry County

Family Medicine for McHenry County is an independent doctor’s office located in Crystal Lake, Illinois at the corner of Pingree Road and James R. Rakow Road. Michael Lesser, MD established the practice in 1984, and has been proudly serving the community ever since. The practice was voted one of the Best Family Physicians in McHenry County in 2011, 2012, and 2013 through the Northwest Herald “Best of the Fox” reader surveys.

We have taken specific measures to make sure you feel right at home when you visit us, which is how we think “going to the doctor” should be. From the moment you walk in the door and are greeted by our receptionists Sandy, Anna, Andrea, or Mary, you’ll know you’re not in a typical doctor’s office.

Today, Dr. Lesser is supported by four nurse practitioners: Christy Benton, Kathie Galias, Cindy MacDonald, and Rose Iverson, all of whom are board certified.

After decades in business, Family Medicine is well connected in the local medical community, which allows us to recommend you to specialists should it become necessary. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that you’ll be well taken care of no matter what your healthcare needs may be.

We accept most insurance plans, and are happy to help you understand your coverage.

On our website we hope to help you lead a healthy lifestyle by providing Focus content for your wellness. We also engage with our families on our Facebook Page to stay involved in our community.

We also are pleased to provide our Patient Portal, where our patients can access medical records, request prescription refills, request appointments, leave a message with our staff, and much more.
