What People Say About Dr. Joseph Lee, MD

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 put me at ease right away. I felt confident with his skill right away. He explained to me the whole procedure I was about to have and was spot on! I experienced very little pain maybe a pinch and so far I am very pleased with my results. I would definitely recommend Dr Lee

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

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!

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!!!!!!!

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.
