My appointment with Dr. Yvonne Lee was my first visit to a rheumatologist. Dr. Lee gave me a thorough exam for my painful shoulder problem, studied my x-rays carefully, was kind and patient in explaining aspects of the problem in a way that I could understand, and gave me a comprehensive diagnosis and wise advice. I would highly recommend Dr. Yvonne Lee and Northwestern Memorial Hospital. I also very much appreciate all the efforts of Dr. Lee, her Assistant and the Hospital in protecting patients concerning COVID-19.
