Dr Hee is the best! She is not only tops for pulmonary issues, she ASKS about other issues a patient has. Follows up on every test and reads your chart and knows and understands what is happening with you. I wish all my doctors cared about me like she does!

She was great for my asthma, but when I developed other problems, she fought to get me help when other doctors wouldn't listen.
