I was extremely pleased with my cataract removal and premium lens replacement surgery. Dr. Lee informed me of the risks (which were minimal) so I felt fully informed going into the surgery. And was pleasantly surprised at how well the procedure went and the quick healing process.

in Moulton, Al |
Had laser cataract surgery on both eyes...have worn glasses/contacts since grade school...opted for the best distance vision possible...was 20/20 at one month check up...could not be more pleased...very good experience with Dr. Lee and would definitely recommend.
Very good experience. Thankful everyday that I had Dr lee perform laser surgery.
in Athens, AL |
Went to Dr. Lee for simple early cataract removal, He said no problem and then mentioned the use of a laser which would make the surgery easier, quicker and more acurate and would probably remove my astigmatism eliminating my progressive lense glasses. Ins. would pay for everything except $3,000.00 per eye for the computer treatment. Don't get suckered I timed the patient before me and Dr. Lee came in and spent less than 45 seconds using the laser on the patient. I WOULD NOT GO BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!
in Huntsville, AL |
I only saw Dr Lee for 5 min to schedule the cataract surgery then for 3 min after the surgery I now have several problems due to the surgery which include blisters on the back of my eye severe dry eye eyes now out of control. and the lens he put in after less than a month are now cloudy so that now has to be corrected. If you value your eye sight do not use him
in Huntsville, AL |
I only saw Dr.Lee once and I saw quickly I needed to find another eye Doctor.....I diffently felt he didn't like me either. I left really upset by him.....
Madison, AL |
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Answered all my questions and help put me at ease. Only issue was that I never got called back within 40 minutes of my appointment time. Still had to wait awhile once I was called back. I can understand that some appts can run long and throw them off their schedule but this happened for every appt that I had.
in Huntsville, AL |
He was rude to my elderly mother. He yelled at her and huffed loudly and sat back and just stared at her. He needs to learn how to treat his clients.

It did not work for me
