Dr. Lee's Care Philosophy

Dr. Lee has experienced everything from bad car wrecks to ducking gunfire (ask him during your appointment). He even put himself through school as an iron worker, assembling buildings 250 feet in the air. But he will tell you that the most afraid he has ever been was when he required surgery at age 19 for a college football injury. Dr. Lee's understanding of this fear makes him sensitive to his patients' needs, and he makes sure each person is comfortable with all aspects of their medical care.He takes pride in his reputation for talking to his patients "too much." These in-depth conversations help his patients thoroughly understand their condition, treatment options, and likely outcomes. Dr. Lee knows well-informed patients make the best decisions regarding their health and will be more at ease with any medical procedures they undergo.

    in Houston, TX |
    I have used Dr. Lee for years for my orthopedic issues. He does like to pursue conservative treatment options first, which suits me just fine as I prefer to try everything I can before resorting to surgery. When I suffered a mild rotator cuff tear, he recommended physical therapy instead of surgery. I may not be able to throw a baseball or football with an overhand motion, but I can do almost anything else without pain or discomfort.
