    I really had a wonderful experience with the virtual appointment with Dr. Lee on 5/8/20 @ 2:00pm. He was on time & ready to address all my medical concerns. He also inform me that if i have any urgent matters that I can always leave a message on the portal. I felt at ease & comfortable with Dr. Lee. I do hope go forward once everything is back in a new normal that we can have this Virtual Doctor Visit.
