What People Say About Dr. K Philip Lee, MD

I had testing done with Dr. Lee. I walked away not really knowing what the meaning of the results was. He referred me to another doctor for rehab. When I went to see her she didn't know why I was there!!! I was confused and so was she. She would not examine me due to the referral sent by Dr. Lee. She stated she did not really know him. I called his office today to find out what is going on.

Dr. Lee acts completely disengaged with his patients. Lack of empathy for his patients. He seems to recommend additional tests that are costly and unnecessary. For checkups, long wait times +30min. Long wait time for prescription appprovals that require you to constantly follow up with. Not recommended.

I've never had a problem with him necessarily, but would not recommend him either. My biggest problem is the staff! TERRIBLE. They don't have a nurse line, you can NEVER reach anyone, only leave messages. I've been chasing that office for last 3 days to get bloodwork orders faxed bc they never were done initially as requested, and they snapped at me several times for trying to ask for a simple confirmation thru the appt line...like I was an inconvenience! Would not recommend.

Found the staff to be very welcoming and helpful. Dr. Lee spent extra time explaining testing and possible causes and effects of my diagnosis as well as a very quick response to test results. Found the visit to be informative and pleasant. Would definatley recommend the office and Dr. Lee to family and friends.

based on reviews I was very hesitant seeing Dr. Lee. Contrary to others I found his staff very kind and helpful. I have a problem with hands, one of the staff offered to fill out y paperwork. The waiting time very reasonable. Staff help me walk to the exam room because walking is still a issue as well as balance. Waiting for Dr Lee in the room was very short 2-3 minutes. He is a quiet man and soft spoken. He is planning more test. I'm found him professional and more than able
