The worst experience. Dr. Lee is so unprofessional and her assistant Jessica is RUDE. This doctor is sloppy. Failed to explain anything to me. Unprofessional, I can’t wait to get my mail in to write my review. I don’t recommend.

Try to avoid her if possible. My mother was admitted from the ER and was put under her care. She was very combative with us when we asked basic questions about tentative diagnosis. She was also unwilling to give possible other different reasons for the current problem. She also could not or would not explain the diagnostics offered.

Dr. Le is a wonderful doctor! She takes her time, answers all questions, listens to concerns, explains everything, and works with me to figure out what we both think is the best treatment option for any health concern. When I had a medical emergency, she and he equally wonderful nurse, Barbara, personally took care of me from the minute I raced into her office through my emergency surgery, and through all the follow-up care I needed afterwards. She's the BEST.

I am a first time patient. Dr. Le was nice and knowledgeable. Unfortunately, I waited 30 min in the examining room for our first meet. She did apologize, yet I was not happy about that.
