in Ft Worth, TX |
I had emergency surgery and first though the had a good bedside manor. I had a freak clot in spinal cord. Needless to say long recovery. Go into office and he is a completely different person. Night and day and puts you down. I've gone through Cancer and now this freak clot and he put me down at the worse time imaginable. I will never use him again.
in Weatherford, TX |
I came to Dr. Lee with leg problems that I thought might be related to my back. He ordered thorough tests that determined my problems are neurological. He recommended a neurological doctor & his staff immediately set up an appointment for me. I was so impressed with his explanation of the test results and his immediate actions in finding a doctor that can help me. He performed a spinal fusion on my husband a year ago that has done wonders. He is the most caring doctor & excellent surgeon.
in Hurst, TX |
Dr Lee fused C3 - C6 after a fall in which I suffered a slip Disc which pushed my spinal cord dangerously close to the boney vertebrae. His surgery resulted in stabilizing my cervical vertebrae and allowed me to return to work in 4 weeks without limitations. Dr. Lee is personable, knowledgeable, and a skilled surgeon. I would recomment him to anyone who has backpain as the result of age or injury.
in Joshua, TX |
Great very down to earth and professional at same time. I felt very comfortable talking to him.

Dr. Lee operated on my wife's bran aneurysm in November, 2014. His kind, compassionate, and professional manner was a God send. He explained everything ahead of time that needed to be done so that we could understand it, the surgery was a success, and everything he said would probably happen with the recovery did. Less than a year later she and I trained for an endurance bicycle ride and she rode about 80 miles with no problem. We have recommended Dr. Lee to several other people.

Dr. Lee is a very caring Dr. and checks on you on a daily basis while you are in Hospital, and follows up with other Dr's that have been brought in for other Medical needs that you have.
in Alvarado TX |
Dr Lee is highly skilled. He was able to diagnosis and surgically correct my trigemenial NEURLGIA which I have lived with extreme pain for 7 years. Because of Dr Lee I'm pain free and gave me my life back. Dr Lee is very compassionate and I've already recommended him.
in Fort Worth, TX |
Dr. Anthony Lee is a very good doctor. He goes above and beyond with regards to dealing with his patients and very sympathetic and caring. Yes, I would recommend him to friends and family for any back problems. Thank you Dr. Lee for everything. Maraming salamat!
in Fort Worth, TX |
Dr Lee was very good at explaining the situation and very thorough with tests and pt care. I have referred him to several pts. I would definitely use him again if I ever needed another surgery. Thank you Dr Lee for everything you have done for me, God bless you!
