Dr. Lee's office misleaded us to go there to check the vision test for $299. They claimed that they are in network but didn't tell us if this procedure is succetable. They said that before we went there, they cannot tell if this procedure is covered or not. But if we go there, we will receive a big bill. This is a deadlock. We should go through some prediction process if you are not really sure. Why the patient should take full responsibility of the big bill?

Dr Lee is always running behind, there is no point in being on time to your appointments. She doesn't like to be questioned about anything, it's kind of like "her way or the highway". She doesn't show respect or compassion for families.

Shouldn't work with children. Daughter went here with visual disturbances. She was playing with the plastic over the arm covers (placing her hand in then as far as she could and pulling it out) due to her being scared/nervous and Lee actually placed her hand over hers and said "stop" in a scoulding manner. She had nothing in the room for a child to play with to take their mind off being scared. Then when I got a copy of my records was furious. Wrong!!!!!!!! so wish it would let me write mor

She was very supportive of the decision for surgery. I have had nothing but good experiences with Dr. Lee and her staff.

Had strabismus surgery performed by Dr. Lee, very happy with the outcome. Would recommend her to anyone needing this type of surgery.

I would have to say that my visit with Dr. Lee has been rather amiable, under the circumstances. She is someone I would recommend if you needed eye care. The office is very clean and is set up for kids to put them at ease, as I believe it is also a childrens eye Doctor office. Dr. Lee will answer your questions if you have any questions, and I am sure they are the best of her ability as a Doctor. She is pleasant to be around, and the staff are very friendly and courteous.
