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!

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.
