Dr Lee was on time and explained everything very easily to understand and asked for my input for decisions that needed to be made. He was very receptive to questions and gave honest answers. He also stayed for over 30 minutes and didn’t appear to be in a rush to leave as other doctors are prone to do.

Dr. Peter Lee is an outstanding young man. He is concerned about my well being. He listens to my concerns. He explains everything related to diagnosis and treatment in language I understand. He is extremely patient and does not rush me into making any decisions. Eight years ago, he did surgery on my son with an outcome that was more than we could have anticipated.

We first met Dr. Lee when our son needed emergency spinal cord surgery in 2013. I have now been having issues with my back. Dr. Lee is patient. He listens to my concerns, shares information regarding my condition in a manner that is understandable, and gives me the time to consider all options. He is an outstanding doctor and a remarkable young man.

In 2013, Dr. Lee performed spinal cord surgery for our son. He was outstanding in his care and concern. To see the improvement in our son was like a miracle. I can only imagine that in the time since then, Dr. Lee has only become more skilled. He is also very honest in our discussions about my needs; yet doesn't try to pressure me into making a decision. He listens to what I say and understands my concerns.
