I went with a knee injury and an MRI that showed torn cartilage. His office insisted I take costly x-rays before Dr. Lee would see me. He spent 5 rushed minutes with me twisting my leg to confirm that the meniscus was torn, as seen on the MRI. He never even referred to the x-rays. He recommended I buy a 5lb ankle weight and do leg lifts. When I did, I reinjured the knee, which swelled, and 2 days later I felt a ‘rubberband snap’ and collapsed to the ground. Now getting 2nd MRI and new doctor!

Dr. Lee was not at all helpful. My visit to his office was a complete waste of time and money. I went in knowing I had a torn hamstring, and he offered no advice for how I might ameliorate the symptoms. Instead, the office took costly x-rays that were unnecessary (I knew there was nothing wrong with my bones and x-rays tell you nothing about tendons). I'm a runner, and his solution was to suggest I "find a new sport" when in fact, there are ways to strengthen the hamstring and rehabilitate.

Horrible place! Went for 2 visits and was told my insurance was out of network and I have to pay for everything. Saw nothing on xray so they assumed what's wrong instead of ordering more tests. Put me in a cast that may not have been needed. Office staff is rude. U can hear them talking mean about u when they leave the room. Was in extreme pain and they wouldn't make room for me - I had to wait over a week to get in. Now seeing a real doctor. I'd give zero stars if I could. Don't go here!

Dr Lee performed 2 of my recent surgeries, both successful with little to no pain afterwards. I had been getting injections in my arm for years from another physician when I came to Dr Lee. Dr Lee explained how these frequent injections were not good and also told me the injections could be masking something more serious. I had an MRI and found out I had a severe ligament tear. Dr. Lee is highly knowledgeable and professional, he and his staff are a pleasure. Wait times and call backs r prompt.

Extremely rude staff. If you have public aid medical insurance don't bother you will be treated like dirt. I truely hope no one in that office including dr lee never ever needs public assisted health care. Not a caring Doctor unless you have money.

I was taken to Bolingbrook Hospital with a broken ankle and was treated by Dr. Lee throughout the recovery period. The staff, office, and especially Dr. Lee were all very friendly, very competent, and most able in handling my case. Highly recommended.
