Patient Comments (3)

I found her not at all helpful. I told her several times that I had questions, but she saw to it that I never had an opportunity to ask them. I didn't know anything about Macular Degeneration & needed to find out the nature of it. I will have to Google it, I guess.

I've been seeing Dr. Lee since shortly after I moved to NY back in 1992. She's professional and friendly. I will miss her when I move to FL next year.
