I've been going to Dr. Lee for years now for routine ear wax removal. He is way better than anyone else I've had do the removal and is very personable as well. Highly recommend.

Dr. Lee snuck in a $237.50 nasal scope into a routine consultation. Readers should be careful before allowing him to insert what looks to be a cotton sleeve into your nose. It is actually anesthetic for this costly procedure.
