Dr. Lee has monitored my heart condition for many years and encourages me to get movement, eat healthy and take my medication. He demonstrates a real interest in my health. I can easily ask him questions and get answers.

Dr Lee was able to explain my condition which is somewhat rare. He took his time and is very knowledgeable. He established a treatment plan which made sense for the condition. Other cardiologist I have seen since my condition started provided little help other than referring me to Dr Lee

His thoroughness. I’ve never had a doctor ask as many questions as him. Explains things completely. Very prof, genuine and I appreciate taking advice from a doctor who clearly takes care of his own health.

Up to today I would have given Dr Lee a 10 but as stated above I don’t think he spent appropriate time with me today given I see him once a year. If I am going to a cardiologist annually, the visit should not be rote and perfunctory.

From the first time meeting Dr. Lee to my annual check-ups, I’ve been happy to have him as part of my care team. His calm disposition, compassionate approach, and clear and simple way of explaining things make me feel very confident about my heart health.

Dr. Lee is so knowledgeable; he explains everything very well and never rushes through an appointment. He patiently answers questions and facilitates discussions of care options. I think he is an A+ doctor.

Excellent communication and listening. He takes the time to ensure that his patients understand the concepts around diagnosis and treatment. I never felt rushed during my appointments, and felt that I was in a safe space. One of the best doctors I have had.

Every time I have an appointment with Dr. Lee, I learn something new or come away with a different way of thinking about something. He is really warm, caring and sharp. He takes abundant time to explain things and never seems rushed even though I am sure he has a very busy schedule. He's wonderful!

I had my first appointment with Dr. Lee today and found him to be personable, professional and very knowledgeable. I felt comfortable talking with him about my concerns. He even made me laugh!! I did not feel rushed in our appointment and he provided reasonable explanations for my symptoms and answers I needed about my medication; and he provided a plan for the next steps in my care & treatment.
External Professional Relationships
Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
