About Me

Care Philosophy

My practice focus is on Interventional Physiatry which entails all nonoperative treatment of spine related pain. I recently joined Mount Sinai in 2013 after serving over 15 years as an attending physician and partner at the Spine Institute of Beth Israel Medical Center in NYC. Our general philosophy is to individualize care to each patient using a comprehensive, multidiscplinary team approach.

Dr. Lee has been treating me for chronic pain due to disk disease, stenosis and osteoarthritis of the spine. He shows concern for me not only as a patient, but as a whole person in need of personal care. He has referred me to cutting edge programs in non-invasive pain management involving both mind and body. As my condition has degenerated, he has made excellent suggestions and guided me with sensitivity.
