What People Say About Dr. Herbert Lee, MD

I read other reviews, both positive and negative, and feel strongly that Dr. Lee deserves FIVE stars. He is a very caring doctor and gave a detailed explanation of my test results. He is definitely an expert in the digestive disease field, and I am confident of his diagnosis and follow-up treatments. Also, Dr. Lee's English is very fluent and I don't understand why people had difficulty communicating with him.

He is a great doctor however his office is a mess. They waited almost 2 years to bill me for something that they did not bill my insurance correctly for. When asked to try rebilling and call me back they never called me back. I called multiple times and left messages to pay and never heard back. They then turned me over to a collections agency after I had called and was able to make a payment. Tried to find out why they would do so when we had a payment arrangement & they never called back.

He is really good, better than my previous doctors I must say. I might stay under his care for years. I just hope that he doesn't loss some of his patients just because of unreliable billing staff. I had same experience with other's posts here; my visit was filed as office visit and end up paying for laboratory test/exam. I am not sick, I went to see Dr. Lee for an annual comprehensive/preventative exam. My insurance company said it should be filed with correct codes for me to avail all benefits

Experience with Dr. Lee himself was okay. The biggest problem was his billing office. I had a physical exam last year but it was billed as office visit. After I called, they responded that they would correct it. After a couple of months, the bill came back and still charged us as office visit. After that we called his billing office, no one answered the phone, not even replying my voice message. I wrote them a letter, no response either. Ended up I had to pay for it.
