I have been a patient at Brigham & Women Hospital for over fifteen years and the medical and support staff does not compare to Dr. Jon wee and the Thoracic surgery clinic.Dr.Jon Wee preformed laser surgery on my esophagous making it possible to enjoy eating a regular diet which I had problems doing since 1999.Dr. Jon Wee is a skilled surgeon with a great bed side mannner.The only issue I have with Dr.Wee is he sometimes substitues another surgeon to preform his duties for good reason .

I was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in the spring of 2015. My surgery was performed by Dr. Wee .I meet with Dr. Wee at regular intervals since the surgery for follow up evaluations. Dr. Wee and his staff have always cared for me with the highest degree of professionalism and concern. All my questions are answered and any problems addressed without delay. I have complete trust in Dr. Wee's judgement and capabilities and appreciate the dedication of Dr. Wee and his staff to their .patients.

Dr. Wee was caring and informative, explained the procedure and the possible outcomes clearly and directly. As I was being released from the hospital on mid day Sunday, Dr. Wee took the time to come to my room to speak to us and to wish us well. His support staff responded to my questions once I was at home in a clear and timely manner. My experience with Dr. Wee and his staff was and is top rate.

Dr. Wee has seen me through two life threatening episodes. It is impossible to express my gratitude for his incredible skill and care. I continue to rely on him and his staff. The office staff, from those checking you in to those taking your vitals, have always been helpful and friendly. I greatly appreciate how Dr. Wee and the other doctors I see work so well together. My care has been unmatched.

I have been a patient of Dr. Wee for the past four years. He is treating me for lung cancer. He has done one surgery on me which produced wonderful results. I find Dr. Wee to be a great doctor. He listens to my concerns and answers my questions honestly. His staff are courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. My appointments are met in a timely manner. I would recommend Dr. Wee 100% to any patient needing Thoracic Surgery. I call him a great Doctor and a "good man".....
