Seminary Ms |
I was seen by his practitioner. She reviewed my MRIs and medical history and showed them to Dr Lee. I have had adhesive arachnoiditis for many years. Dr Lee wanted to preform a myelogram on me to "see" if I had Arachnoiditis. I refused the procedure because it would have made me 10x worse given the fact that they inject dye inside the spinal cord. That is a sterile environment and is one of the leading causes of Arachnoiditis to begin with!!!

I would recommend him to ANYONE. He is my neuroseurgion/back-specialist. I have conditions people my age shouldn't have. Every time I see him he tells me the best options for me. He can tell what's wrong just by looking at the way I sit or move. He is clear and precise in his explanations and he always makes sure I'm comfortable with the treatment options. Nobody else will ever touch my back.

Absolutely wonderful surgeon

I feel that Dr Lee is an excellent Doctor. My only fault is having to wait so long for an appointment, and also having to see the nurse practitioner too often
in Leakesville Ms |
I had back surgery December 8th, as of now everything is pretty good but still have some pain I had questions about. I would of expected to see Dr lee for the two week check up but saw his nurse practitioner. She was nice and somewhat helpful but I would of felt better if I would have saw the doctor that actually performed my surgery.
