I would highly recommend Dr. Lee. I had 2 herniated disc in my lower back. He took the time to explain my condition and the course of action he thought I would benefit from. He is knowledgeable and has a wonderful staff working with him. I am well on my way to resuming all activities thanks to Dr. Lee.

Dr Lee was excellent. I had a situation where the first attempt of injection was unsuccessful. Rather than proceed, Dr Lee determined to bring me back and repeat the procedure altering it a little - was the correct recommendation that led to successful result. Upon my return, and although Dr Lee was not doing injections he consulted with the Dr on call and made it appoint to personally stop in and check on me.

I would highly recommend Dr. Lee. From the first day I met him he immediately diagnosed me and gave me relief. He has two highly competent people working with him...Barbara (who assists in getting me ready for epidurals and after the procedure) and Don (who assists in the room with Dr. Lee during the epidurals). They are extremely pleasant and highly competent.

Dr Lee was very helpful in explaining my condition. He was kind, friendly and very informative. So happy I found him. He is very knowledgeable and I am certain I can trust him with my health. I am so scared to get an epidural and after meeting with him I am fully confident he will get the job done safely and help me get back to where I need to be.

His epidurals for my back did not help. I visited another doctor and felt better after one epidural. He refused to give me a shoulder cortisone shot when I was in pain. He would not coordinate getting an MRI for out of state physician I'm visiting

Dr.Lee is a very capable and compassionate doctor. He sincerely listens to and responds to my concerns, and has a very pleasant demeanor, as well as an excellent bedside manner. I recommended him to my sister-in-law, and she has had very positive experiences with him as well. I am so comforted to know I have a doctor who can provide me with excellent medical care particularly in times when I have experienced extreme pain. Thank you Dr. Lee!

Dr. Lee is extremely contradicting to what he tells you from one appointment to the next Being in the medical field I understand the importance of honesty and accuracy... Dr. Lee is Not only dishonest, but rude as well. After being treated for herniated discs with two epidurals given by him....he stated I never had disc problems. Insane!!!!!!!
