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.

Dr. Lee and his fellow were extremely courteous, respectful, and intelligent. They listened carefully and addressed all of my concerns and promptly diagnosed me while reassuring me and clearly describing the course of treatment. I wholeheartedly recommend him.
