Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lee "I strive to provide exemplary, individualized care to each of my patients with a simple motto - "Do what's right". While trained in the latest surgical skills and techniques, I will always initially promote a conservative, multidisciplinary approach, and offer surgical intervention only as a final option.  I am very comfortable with my surgical skill set, and will not hesitate to refer patients that I feel can be better treated by another provider, or to obtain a second opinion."

I was referred to Dr. Lee by one of the doctors at Stanford, who took care of me when I was in college. Doc's diagnosis was spot on, and I was able to get into surgery to fix my shoulder within a few weeks. His staff (especially Sally) is the friendliest I've experienced at a physicians office!

Dr. Lee is an incredible surgeon who is very patient and takes his time to make sure that all of my questions were answered. He even called me on a Saturday night after surgery to see how I was doing!
