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 friendly, down to earth professional and a master of his work. Highly highly recommend.

My first time seeing the Dr Lee I was in a lot of pain and he reassured me it will get better over time which it has. Having been to other doctors for my condition and Dr Lee's treatment is what worked for me thus far.

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!
in Bellmore, NY |
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!!!!!!!
in Mineola, NY |
I went to this doctor to possibly have acupuncture for back pain. He insisted on doing a diagnostic epidural before he would consider me as a patient. The epidural, administered with almost no local anesthetic, was painful and showed nothing more than had already been found and documented by my orthopedist. I felt I was put through an unnecessary procedure and chose not to return to him after the two initial visits.
