This Dr is plain awful. She has zero empathy and zero sympathy. I have never met a dr like her in my life. Absolutely doesn't care about you. Insists on seeing you in person only to type on the computer while barking questions at you like you're on trial or something. She spends a total if 8 minutes with you MAX and doesn't listen to anything you say. And to top it off she has no idea what she's doing. She will put you on and off a thousand different medications- putting your body through hell!!

Dr Lee did NOT listen to me at all. She never ordered the tests that were needed for my diagnosis. She took me off all my meds and changed my diagnosis from my previous dr. ( I moved from out of state) She has sent my life for a tale spin. Due to her lack of listening, ordering the tests she felt she needed, and continuing the care from my previous dr. (As I had for 3 years) I believe I fell asleep at the wheel. She's NOT a good Dr. at all. If you care about your health PLEASE go elsewhere!
This patient unfortunately was MISDIAGNOSED by her last sleep specialist.According to the International Classification of Sleep Disorders (ICSD) 3rd edition,her prior sleep study was incorrectly interpreted and she was placed on inappropriate medication, which is very dangerous. I recommended another sleep study, but she never completed it.I am a board certified sleep specialist, and unfortunately several physicians practicing sleep medicine aren't and don't know how to interpret sleep studies.

Dr.karen Lee is a very compassionate and caring physician. She takes her time to listen to the patients and explain their problems and offers the choices of treatment. I feel that I am lucky to have Dr.Lee as my neurologist and I recommend her highly
