I was disappointed in the suggested treatment. I have tried stool softeners and eliminating cheese and other diary products from my diet. I still don't know why the swelling is in my chest or why I stay nauseated. Previous Dr. said I will be nauseated until the H-Phyloric can be treated. Dr. Lee was very thorough with questions and overviews of my health history. I hope eventually my problem will be resolved. Disappointed but hopeful.

I was able to schedule an in person appointment with dr lee and he was not even in the office when I checked in for my appointment. I ended up getting seen by a nurse practitioner who was great. Dr Lee called me while I was waiting in the waiting room to see him to tell me that he was not in the office that day. He did not even apologize. I am extremely disappointed in my experience today.
