I went to see Dr. Chong Lee for minor surgery with my mother. He referred me out to a plastic surgeon instead and I was informed that it was an inappropriate referral. Not only did he not take care of my problem, he was rude and condescending to us. I will not see him again.

I have had Dr Lee for two neuro surgeries in the past 2 years. He is very skillful and l trust him completely. I would like a bit more explanation prior to the surgery but l think that may be my need to know a lot of detail. I would trust him again for myself or a family member.

I am the husband of the patient. Dr Lee was personable and professional. He called me after meeting with her the first time to say that the surgery was needed and quickly. Met me again post opp and very nice and explained the procedure in terms I could understand.
