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

After being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease about 10 years ago, I have sat in front of many physicians and my visit with Dr. Lee was by by far the worst visit that I have EVER had with a physician. During my visit with him he was very condescending, negative and uncaring. After the appointment I did not feel confident in his skills to care for me and my unborn child. I left the appointment very upset and disappointed especially since it was my first prenatal appointment.

Dr. Lee has shown himself to not only have terrible bedside manner, but also to be unethical and incompetent. His care while I was hospitalized was so erratic that the nurses stepped in and called patient relations because his care was bordering on dangerous. It also became clear that we never should've been admitted in the first place and were lied to about our baby's well being for days. He also refused to reach out to specialized doctors for help in areas outside of his experience. It was a traumatic stay and when we called him out on it, his response was incredibly immature and he began messing with my chart online and we are still trying to get it sorted out. He is unethical, immature, and incompetent.

Dr Lee’s bedside manner is very poor. I left the office visit feeling very upset. I went in already nervous, as I have previously had severe pregnancy complications, only to feel like I’m a terrible mom. The only thing giving him a 3/5 star rating from me, is his ability as a physician. I would not recommend him if you need comfort.

Dr. Lee is a confident and competent provider. He spent time with me, was compassionate with my past experiences, explained all possible options and gave true and complete informed consent, something that is often not given in the birth setting. He was respectful of my wishes while ensuring the safety of me and my babies. I was able to have the vaginal birth I wanted with breech/vertex twins, with minimal intervention. Dr. Lee brought a calmness to the delivery room and truly respects birth.

Dr. Lee was a caring and compassionate physician who constantly went out of the way to explain my diagnosis and treatments to me. He never made me feel like my questions were silly or unimportant. I really appreciate all the extra time that he spent with me and for the beautiful baby girl I have thanks to him.

Dr. Lee is one of the few doctors in town who is willing to attempt a breech delivery. I would definitely recommend anyone with a complicated delivery to get in touch with him!

I had a great experience with Dr. Lee, he was always taking my opinion into account and was very helpful with explaining any recommendations for my pregnancy. I am a type-1 diabetic and he showed great compassion and knowledge in that area too. I would recommend Dr. Lee to family and friends and if I was to decide to have any more children, I would look forward to working with him again during my pregnancy.

Dr. Lee is an exceptional physician and I would highly recommend him to anyone. He aways communicated exactly what my options were and was willing to listen and discuss them as many times as I needed. He is incredibly knowledgeable, calm and patient and I would trust him in any situation.

This Dr. attempted to do a multi-fetal reduction, reducing from quadruplets to twins. He seemed as if he did not know what he was doing, the pain was awful and I made him stop after a second attempt. He informed me the needle did not go through and it's like I was not even in his office. later that night I had some leaking and went to the my DR. to find out Dr. Lee ruptured one of my babies sacs. That baby now has a growth on her head due to lack of fluid and will not survive after birth.
