Dr. Wee Says:

This is Dr.Wee responding the review on 2/16/16: This review is quite unusual and is difficult to address as it is out of our norm and we are not aware of anyone who had this experience. It is unfortunate when any patient has a bad experience. Our goal is to make sure we address all of our patients' concerns. We try to make sure that all of our patients have time to ask questions...

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.

in Danvers, MA |
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.
in Tewksbury, MA |
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".....
in Andover, MA |
My experience with Dr. Wee has been most positive. Professionally, I find his demeanor, less invasive surgical approach, and skill with the Da vinci robot to be without peer. As an individual, I find him to be compassionate, thoughtful, patient and caring. He always makes time to listen to my concerns offering helpful medical advice and guidance. To say "I would trust him with my life" is not simply a phrase. I have. In my opinion Dr. Wee is the best Thoracic Surgeon in Boston.
in Weymouth, MA |
My husband always goes to appointments with me, since two sets of ears are better than one set. He has said that Dr. Wee is the best doctor he has ever seen. He is definitely my favorite one, and I've been to quite a few doctors in my life. Dr. Wee has diagnosed my problems correctly and fixed them, too. After my hiatal hernia surgery he saw a spot on my lung in a CAT scan and predicted it to be cancer. He removed the spot ,which indeed a very small cancer. We'd recommend Dr. Wee to anyone.
in Marshfield, MA |
Dr.Wee did Minimally Invasive Thoracic Surgery on cancer of my esophagus one year ago. Now I am able to eat all foods with no discomfort. I am very happy with the result. Dr.Wee is a fine gentleman and doctor. I would recommend him very highly.

Through, efficient, clean, and personable
in Connecticut |
I was referred to Dr. Wee by my oncologist for a thoracotomy and lobectomy. Dr. Wee was very approachable, very nice and patient, and explained the surgery in detail and what to expect during recovery. Surgery went very well. Hope I never need thoracic surgery again but if I do, Dr. Wee will be the surgeon.
in Boston, MA |
Thorough, caring and supportive - excellent surgeon with great skill in minimally invasive robotic surgery.
in Lanesborough, MA |
Dr. Wee and everyone in that office is the absolute epitome' of professionalism, very friendly and attentive, takes the time to answer questions thoroughly and spend whatever time is necessary to ensure patients questions are answered in easy to understand terms while carefully reviewing history and offering the best possible advice and recommendations to ensure the best possible outcome for patients. I very highly recommend Dr. Wee and give him the highest possible marks in every category.
I found him to be unwilling to answer questions. He was incredibly arrogant. He had horrible follow through. He recommended a referal then never made it happen and didn't respond to follow up message. He did a poor job explaining procedure and I have no confidence in the job he did. I would strongly recommend going to a different doctor.
