What People Say About Dr. Eugene Lee, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Lee is very kind and knowledgeable. He inspires you confidence and a sense of peace. I like the fact that for the two procedures that I had in two years, he called me to give me the results. Some doctors want to see you, but Dr. Lee called me and explained everything over the phone, which saved me time and money. I was pleased with the results and the best thing is that I am also cured from Gastritis and I haven't had an episode since I was treated by Dr. Lee more than 2 years ago.

I'm very fortunate to have Dr. Lee as my physician to address any and all of my gastro problems. He is highly skilled and knowledgeable in his medical field. His art of listening and self assuring feed back are both wonderful traits he possess. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Lee to anyone...any time!!!!

Dr. Lee is an excellent physician with warm, wonderful people skills. He explained the preparation and procedure thoroughly at my consultation and my actual colonoscopy went perfectly. He called me personally to explain the results of my colonoscopy which I really appreciated. My husband will be scheduling his first colonoscopy next month and is looking forward to working with Dr.. Lee.
