Dr. Lee was outstanding in her ability to be thoughtful and thorough in examining my sleep study. I couldn’t have ask for a better experience in understanding a very complicated sleep apnea study. Thank you Dr. Lee. I look forward to your recommendations. Thank you. Abraham G.

Dr. Lee has a great bedside manner, she really listens and has been very responsive by phone and messaging. She's treated me for two different issues and both times I feel that she was very thorough on the diagnosis. I would not hesitate recommend her.
