Terrible experience. Shame on them for treating me the way they did. Would not reccomend and will likely travel to Boston to avoid further contact.

My experience left me wondering, and disillusioned. I saw his PA mostly, accept the 2 minute walk in by Dr. Lee who came, looked me over and stepped out of office never to be seen again. I just assumed he was busy, I went through the x-rays, leg appointments only to be told that the PA would be doing the procedure not the board certified physician. I get that MD's are busy, but I'm not putting my legs into the hands of a PA.

I certainly did my research before booking my appointment and I was glad I did. Dr. Lee was extremely thorough when it came to explaining the procedure and recovery. From the moment I entered the office I was put at ease. His office was beautiful and the staff were very accommodating. I highly recommend Dr. Lee and his PA.
