Dr. Lee is a horrible doctor. He operated on my back and screwed up my foot and my leg. And he would not take responsibility for the obvious botched surgery he had formed.

A butcher! Told me I'd have a one and one-half in scar and laughed when I was horrified that I had a more than TWELVE INCH SCAR. I am in a wheelchair because of this incompetent doctor and his assistant. No followup and office staff does not relay messages or return calls.

He messed up my lamenectomy. Sewed me up while bleeding. Dismissed me immediately. Had to be readmitted for additional surgery. Have severe nerve damage . Rude and arrogant during post op visit said things go wrong sometimes. I did not sue, I think hospitals should monotor their doctors.
