I can't say enough good things about Dr. Lee, his staff, and his clinic. Amazing in all areas, caring, competent, they exceed all expectations from the routine to eye crisis-es. I've experienced it all! Undoubtedly the finest doctor and specialist I have ever had! Absolutely no complaints!

Unfortunately too much of what happens in the office is handled by other than the doctors. I had a hole in my retina repaired. I was given instruction to call if problems developed. I called 3 times over a period of 2 weeks to describe problems in my vision that were getting progressively worse. When finally seen. my retina was torn halfway across my eye and I needed emergency surgery by a retinal specialist. This could have been avoided if techs had relayed my symptoms to Dr. Lee

Please stay away from this Dr. If you do want any further headache. I ordered annual eye examination. But he did not conduct it and charge me several treatments which I never asked. Then, when I called the office to ask why, no one gave us any reasonable explanation. Then they also threatened me if? then? It was a nightmare. Do not go the office anymore.

I saw Dr. Lee the other day for my annual check up, as I have a family history of eye issues, the staff was amazing as they clearly explained to me exactly what they were testing. The visit was thankfully good news but I sincerely appreciate Dr. Lee for this time and explaining my situation to me

Not a good listener, does not answer patient questions. Poor bedside manner. From my personal experience I cannot recommend this doctor. Go elsewhere.
