Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

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.

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.
