Dr. Lee is an amazing doctor. I have never had a doctor that gives you his undivided attention like Dr Lee has done. From my first (unscheduled/semi emgergency) visit to his office I was so impressed with his bedside manners. Took the time to fully explain the gallbladder and the removal of it. Then surgery which he again explained everything to me and post surgery to my family. His office staff at Texas Healthcare is amazing as well. Thank you to my family physician for sending me to him.

I have been seeing Dr Lee for over 4 years. Dr Lee is compassionate, professional and very easy to talk with. He takes the time that is needed to care for his patients. His staff is great! I am down to once a year visits, and look forward to my next one!!

Dr Lee speaks over you. His staff is miserable and rude, probably because Dr Lee noticibly treated them very disrespectfully. He seems to think he is better than everyone. The scary part is when he talked to me he seemed on edge, but i noticed he was able to hide most of it. I decided to go elsewhere and have had a great experience with a different doctor. Dont let yourself think this is ok. Not all doctors are like this. Dont just go to anybody, shop around. Surgery is a big deal.

Nothing but great things to say about Dr. Lee! His administrative staff, on the other hand is horrible. They are rude and respond to call backs at a snails pace if at all. They act like the patient owes them something and when you call them out about lying, they get more rude and brush you off. Getting through the maze of ineptness is frustrating, tiresome and unnecessary. He should terminate them all and replace them with staff that is eager to work and still have some passion for their job.

Dr. Lee not only repaired the hernia that showed up on the CT scan, but also found other hernias and adhesions which he fixed, and a weak place in my colon that he strengthened with stitches. I appreciate his thoroughness and concern and skill. He answers all my questions with patience and detail. My digestive health will be better than it has been in several years and I am thankful to Dr. Lee for that.
