I would not recommend him if you want your doctor to follow up with you on a timely basis to consult on his findings during your examination. I've had better experience with my cable company getting answers to my questions. If you are considering him, I would seriously consider other options

Don't expect him to explain the results of the procedure.

Dr. literally spends zero time explaining the results of your procedure. I have called 3x's and asked to speak to him and I got no response. His admin staff called me to read the findings....and because I am not a Dr. (nor was she) I have no idea what it meant. She even laughed, "Not sure what that means." Very frustrating.

Dr. lee recently was the doctor for my colonoscopy. This is my second time with him. I have appreciated his expertise, his thoroughness in explaining things and his follow-up. He called me with follow-up though he was away at a conference and spent all of the time I needed explaining things and answering my questions. I have found him to be respectful and engaging and I highly recommend him and have full confidence in him.

I recently took a colonoscopy procedure with Dr Lee. He found two areas of concern upon which he highly recommended a CT & Pet scan procedures which I did. Following those procedures he highly recommended me to see a surgeon. Upon seeing the surgeon he recommended to redo the tests immediately. The test results showed that there was nothing medically wrong with me. In conclusion, I felt that Dr Lees interpretation of the tests was totally incorrect. In turn this caused me undue stress and worry.
