I’ve struggled with the redness of rosacea for decades. When a boss teased me about how red I turned while giving presentations (not helpful!), I was so embarrassed and knew I had to find a real solution. I did a lot of research and found Dr. Lee to be an expert in lasers, and in fact had even written a book on the subject. I was impressed that she has an extensive selection of lasers in her office that allows her to optimally treat numerous conditions. I’ve been seeing Dr. Lee for 10 years now, and with regular laser treatment my redness is significantly reduced. It works far better than any other treatment I’ve tried and is completely worth it. I really appreciate Dr. Lee’s staff as well – they are very kind, thoughtful and professional.

I saw the reviews of this office and gave them a try. I saw Dr. Lee and was very impressed. She clearly explained everything to me and was the first dermatologist to ever fully explain a certain procedure to me. The staff is very friendly and my appointments have all been very pleasant. I highly recommend them.

Lovely staff who are helpful, efficient and courteous. The place is well organized and things work like clockwork here. I arrive for my appointments 10-15 min early and the wait is minimal unlike at other dermatologists. On my last visit I wanted to amp up my Accutane dosage and they listened to my needs. Will continue to come back whenever my skin needs some reviving

Dr. Lee improved my scars immensely! Prior to Total FX, I had a variety of other treatments performed on me including Affirm, Erbium, Laser Genesis, DermaPen microneedling, Infini radiofrequency microneedling, TCA cross, subcision, and chemical peels. Those made minimal to no changes to my major excised scar and other ones on my face. I almost gave up hope but decided to give lasers one more try. After recovery, I saw that my biggest scar softened up tremendously and other ones blended in with their surroundings. I was pretty much astonished given the lack of success I had previously. I'm writing this review because Dr. Lee has boosted my self esteem tenfold. She has a ton of lasers and knows how to use them unlike many doctors. She also specializes in treating ethnic skin (which I have), and this is highly critical for people to consider. I highly recommend Dr. Lee!

Not only has my 84 year old father been going to Dr. Lee for his skin cancers for years, both my sisters and I are making sure we make our yearly visits. Today I did something different. I went to Dr. Lee’s for a facial. Wow, wow, WOW!!! I feel 15 years younger. From a facial! Truly worth going to a skin professional for something most of us go to a day spa for. I can’t wait to schedule my next one.

I have been a long time patient of Dr. Christine Lee and have received only 5 star service from her and her super friendly professional staff. I have been to plenty of bad doctors where they rush you through the appt, don't answer your questions, and provide terrible quality ineffective service! You seriously get what you pay for. Dr. Lee is the top expert in her field, always on the cutting edge, and you only want the best doctor when it comes to your face and body.

Dr Lee has outstanding knowledge and experience in laser dermatology. She has exposure to the latest lasers and owns an extensive range of the best lasers. As a dermatologist with my own laser practice in the UK, I had the privilege of learning from Dr Lee. Her extensive laser experience allowed her to use the lasers to their optimal effect but always putting safety first. As a result, the patients gained noticeable and dramatic improvement from her treatments.
