We honestly cannot share enough good things about Dr. Lee! Every time we leave his office we feel so encouraged, informed and supported. You can tell he deeply cares about his families he cares for and takes such intentional time to ask us about our lives. He is so thoughtful, genuine and compassionate. I especially appreciates the way he takes time to help my little son adjust to fear of the doctor. He took turns listening to my heart, then daddy's heart, and then our son's heart to help him adjust to this unfamiliar and intimidating process for our little man. He is so gifted with the whole family!

We cannot sing Dr. Lee's praises enough! My husband and I joke that we want to be friends with him and have him over for dinner because he is just that warm and personable. On this particular visit we came to him with a difficult request. We, in a sense, were challenging his opinion and asking that our son be put on antibiotics because of exposure to an illness. Dr. Lee was incredibly gracious and patient with us as we expressed our irrational concerns. He didn't come across as condescending. He was kind, through, and explained things in such an assuring and helpful way. I leave his office every single time being so overwhelmed and grateful to have a family physician like Dr. Lee. We refer him to everyone we know!! Working in healthcare myself, I understand how blessed we are to have a provider who is so humble, personable and kind. Furthermore, we trust his guidance and experience so much and know that we are in the best hands.
