Went in with swelling all over my body ie: feet and hands and severe back pain. Dr. Lee told me I should walk. Walk? I could barely get my shoes on. Absurd. I am in serious pain. Then I was told that I would have to wait to get a vein ablation for nearly three weeks because of the holidays. I was not aware that pain bowed down before Christmas or that medical needs gave way to Hannukah.

He diagnosed my father as having an aortic aneurysm, and my father was confused on what it was and his meds. I spoke with Dr Lee on the phone and he was in a rush to hang up. I called him back to clarify what my father has and if he needs follow up, but Dr Lee refused to speak with me on the phone, saying "I refuse to say things 2x. I'm not just a regular cardiologist, I'm an interventional radiologist. I refuse to speak with you on the weekend." He hung up! Do not see him!!
