I'm giving Dr Lee 1star because he's didnt educat me on hyperhidrosis procedure.I was sweat from my head- when I came in to him only about my head, he said he can help! and he asked me if i sweated from my arm pits,I said YES!He told me we can stop the sweating there too so I agreed!Now year post surgery I feel so depressed and in even worse position,because all the sweat is purring out out of my body and legs.I literally can't wear anything bcuz I get soaked.nd the procedure is irreversible.
Although Dr. Lee is proficient in the narrow scope of lung tumor removal, my experience with him as my mother's surgeon shows that he is ill-prepared to orchestrate the associated needs of his patients during their post-op hospital stay. As a lung cancer specialist, with patients actively addicted to cigarettes and alcohol, Dr. Lee is surprisingly uninformed and uncomfortable regarding the psychosocial aspects of addiction and how lung cancer is part of a larger, more complex issue.
