It was the most efficient doctors office I have visited! Paper work was emailed to me prior to visit. I was seen before my scheduled time. Wilson, Laurie, Crystal and the receptionist were friendly, quick, efficient and helpful. Scheduling was a dream!

I went to Dr. Lee for a total thyroidectomy. He's a great doctor and a skilled surgeon. I would highly recommend him.
