I found a totally different experience with Dr. Lee's office. He was a fabulous doctor explained everything, listened well,and seemed very knowledgeable. As for the receptionist, not sure if it was the same one these people had experiences with, but she was eager to explain any concerns I had and set me at ease when I was feeling a little apprehensive about the whole experience. I would recommend this office to anyone who wants to feel cared for and heard as a patient.

Was referred to Dr. Lee for colonoscopy because my previous doctor had retired. During procedure I informed the doctor that the pain was extreme (since I had a previous colonoscopy I was aware of experience). He dismissed my complaint showing no concern for my pain. I repeated my concerns and he continued the procedure without any compassion for my extreme discomfort.

Good doctor, but his receptionist is awful. It is hard to understand why after so many years he hasn't fired her for her atrocious manners and pretentious patient screening attitude.
