*Dr. Lee is superb doctor. He answered all my questions at length, did not rush through the appointment, I asked him to perform my colonoscopy next year and he agreed.

Thank you Dr. Lee!!! Dr. Lee is extremely skilled at questioning patients to draw out specific and relevant information that helps him to form his medical opinions. He was incredibly thorough and as a result, I have an extremely high level of confidence in his medical opinions. I would recommend him very highly.

my daughter went with me due to Spanish being my preferred language and Dr. Lee appeared inpatient with both me as a patient and my daughter. He seemed very rushed. I left feeling very disappointed.

I wish I had 5+ more minutes to be able to talk about everything I was concerned about. It felt rushed at the end

I felt as thought the doctor already had a preconceived idea of my health. I was there for a 2nd opinion and I felt I was not given a chance to talk about my unresolved issues.
