My experience with Dr. Lee was a positive one as he prescribed medication that did actually work and also cured my psoriasis that I have had for 35 years. I think he is very well educated and does fine work!

Dr.Lee informed patient and family of stage 4 melanoma and then set a three week appointment for possible treatments. My father lasted two weeks... My father was yellow from liver malfunction and Dr. Lee said nothing. Does he not see what is infant of him? Given indication of loss of appetite he said nothing. then when tests came back it was too late. Uncaring and irresponsible. unconcerned and very poor communication with patient and family. Dr. Lee and Oasis Health care cared nothing for ..

I had two cancers. Dr. Lee tracked the cancer that I was considered cured of when I had no symptoms. He should have tracked the second cancer. Will never go to him again.

DR Lee is very easy to talk to and explains things in a way that is very easy to understand. However, he does not do a very good at explaining all of the effects of Chemo and all the other tests like CT scans, Ultrasounds, etc that might be needed while you have having Chemo. Also some people will have a drop in their white blood count which is normal but you will have to come to the office for injections to reduce your risk of getting infections. Can do these at home if you ins that will pay

I cannot say how much I liked this doctor. He made me feel so important and like his only patient. He was so kind, gentle and thorough I was feeling lucky to have him as my doctor! More so, his entire staff was amazing and friendly! This office is a true gem!

He took his time with us, explained risks an benefits, and made sound recommendations. My father felt he was not talked down to, and Dr. lee made sure he understood the reasoning behind the decisions being made.
