Dr. Lee is extremely professional. He listens to what the patient has to say and answers all questions. He is clear and concise in his responses. He does not make you feel rushed and understands that the patient may have reservations and fears about possible surgery.

Dr. Lee performed surgery on our son 7 years ago. We were amazed with his knowledge and skill. At that time, I decided that if ever surgery for my back issues was discussed; Dr. Lee is the surgeon I would want to do it. He is understanding, takes the time to discuss all the concerns and answer questions.

It takes a special doctor to perform the type of surgery that he does. Not only is he a knowledgeable doctor/surgeon, he truly cares for his patients and listens to their concerns. I can't say enough kind and appreciative words of what a superb doctor/surgeon he is. He treats all of his medical staff and patients with respect. It was meant for me to become his patient so I could receive the correct care I needed. And my life has changed for the better. Thank you Dr. Lee for everything!

I have never been as happy and satisfied with the level of care from a surgeon's office as I am with Dr. Peter Lee. He addressed all of my issues and concerns seriously and has put me back on the road to recovery and essentially saved my career. Other surgeon's turned me away saying I wasn't a surgical candidate as my pain level and numbness In my legs increased. The damage in my lower spine was more than he even anticipated but he corrected all of those issues. Now I am preparing to return to work thanks to his believing me and giving me what I needed, which was surgery. I am so thankful I found such an amazing doctor and have referred other's to his office for their consult.
