Dr. Lee removed a paralyzing meningioma, an egg-sized brain tumor, from atop my left parietal lobe in 2002. Simply put, he gave me back my LIFE! And, it’s been a good, productive life, full of work and fun. Thank you, Dr. Lee, from the bottom of my heart. (N.E.T. in Monterey, CA.)

He implanted a pacemaker in me. He was very good and very knowledgable. My wife and I both liked him a lot. He also assembled a very good team.
