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.

Dr Lee has been overseeing my care since my renal transplant back in January 2015. He has been at the forefront of my care from an antirejection episode to dehydration concerns, a renal biopsy, through a pregnancy, and even the postnatal care. He is cautious and I thank and credit him with my health and maintainance of my kidney function. He is extremely professional but also personable. He is thorough and has great follow-through which is so important for the ever-changing balance of post transplant care. Maureen and the entire team at NYP Weill Cornell Transplant unit are incredible. I hope I get to use them for a very long time.
