He is condescending doctor, I went to see him due to my troubles getting to sleep and I was diagnosed with a form of insomnia. I had asked after he gave numerous useless suggestions for the possibility of a different medication other than what I've already tried. He had the audacity to say "30 mg of ambien would put me to sleep but I would piss the bed and sleep walk". That is one of the worst bed side manners I've seen, horrible doctor dont ever see him.

My wife went to see Dr Lee concerning a breathing test, CT scan found a spot on her lung and something in the back of her head. Dr Lee said that she should go see a nuro DR as she might have a stroke, was false. Then told her there was an 80/20 chance that the spot on her lung was nothing, glad we went to Penn. Turns out the spot on her lung was very serious. After surgery the surgeon told her to get a CT scan in 6 months. Dr. Lee decided she should wait a year. Would never let her see him.

The doctor tends to give you a sermon on how to change your lifestyle to fit his lifestyle. And, it seems to vary on each annual visit. Some of his suggestions are extreme or just not the way you live your life. He seems to get upset if you don't agree.

I was having difficulty breathing & my family doctor referred me to Dr. Lee. He had a friendly demeanor & took the time to discuss what was going on with me. When the breathing tests came back ok, Dr. Lee suggested I might be experiencing vocal chord dysfunction. I was referred to an ENT at Temple.

After 15 years of having bronchitis twice a year, a spot on my lungs was diagnose as "insignificant, an accumulation of mucus," then I started spitting blood, but never a diagnosis. All this, at NYU Hospital in NYC, New York's best!!! I then saw Dr. Lee. I walked into his office, he immediately tested me for Mycobacterium--an indolent TB. The tests were positive, he prescribed the appropriate medicines, and cured me! A doctor up on the literature of his specialty, and a lovely man!!

He does not have a caring approach. I get the impression all he wants is to keep people returning to keep him in business. I will be looking elsewhere

I have been seeing Dr Lee for 16 years he's an excellent dr. In fact I'm going to see him next week and I live in florida and the doctors down here are all quacks. So for me to spend the airfare to see him four times a year says it all.

First appointment was great. Second appointment, I discovered that if you agree with him he's very pleasant ... if you don't, he's down right nasty. Obviously, I will not be returning to him.
Wasn't interested in anything I wanted to say..A bit arrogant and quick to get me out. He did fill out a RX for me, which is why I made an appointment to see him. My first visit with him was wonderful. Every visit afterwards became a worse experience.

Not a fan, went for a insurance check from work. Don't feel as though he cared about my condition but was really about doing what the employers insurance company wanted him to. Was even told by some staff members they are happier when he is in vacation.
