Patient Comments (1)

I thought Dr. Lee was different but thought wrong.He made me feel that he cared but at the end he was just a typical Doctor(only there for the money).Refrd me to a USC DR.(had horrible experience not very professional physicians).Refrd me to an oncologist and all he wanted is an MRI every 6...more
