Dr. Lee removed my brain tumor. My love for him is up there with my family. As a master’s prepared nurse, I have very high expectations. He is a leader in research and has a wealth of clinical experience and expertise. I can’t imagine what it must be like to perform complex surgeries on a frequent basis. What a gift. Dr. Lee has my eternal respect and gratitude. He has given me the most wonderful gift- his life’s work that has forever changed my life. Simply and exceptional person!

The initial consultation was excellent, and I felt like I was in the best hands. now Dr. seems as though he was always in a rush. I felt like he just wanted me out of the office. I am still experiencing dizzy spells from my brain surgery and do not feel like I can return to work. it took at least 4 emails to him and 4 messages left with his office before he called me back. as of today I have been waiting 3 weeks for my disability to be updated correctly.
Please recall that you were 2 hours late to your appointment. Instead of canceling, I patiently waited for you. Your late arrival was affecting my other appointments. Your dizziness, as explained repeatedly, will take time to recover. Regarding the delayed response to your messages, I was giving lectures in another country. Regarding your disability form, you left me with the wrong file number, and I could not locate your application online. These circumstances were explained to you also.
