Review for Dr. Pandya

Dr Lee is fast, gentle, efficient and exceptionally qualified. He always listens to any concerns, and follows up on them, too. I get a different shot every other visit, which occurs every 3 weeks. I have never had a bad experience, and I am also extremely impressed with his staff. It's a well run...

Very patient surgeon who saved my Dads life. Sometimes we had to wait in the office but it’s because he’s the best and there are only so many hours in a day. Smart man. Wonderful surgeon.
