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.

Dr. Christine Lee is such an extra ordinary doctor. She is very comforting and reassuring. Her inspirational words gave me the strength not to fear pain and needles. Words cannot describe how grateful I am that you have a very tender touch. I hardly felt anything when you removed the cyst on my back and the skin tag hanging on my nose. You have a special gift as a surgeon and you did such a phenomenal job. Dr. Christine Lee, you are the best doctor in my books. Your staff are very professional.

Dr. Christine Lee is such a remarkable doctor that I respect and trust. Thank you Dr. Lee for your excellent care and exceptional professional abilities. I appreciate your caring nature and I adore your loving personality. I used to associate the word surgery to misery. After being under your care, I now associate surgery with healthy recovery. Dr. Lee, you approach surgery like an artist and you always take your time to do the job right. Thank you very much for taking care of me.

I have had such amazing experiences with Dr. Lee. She cares about her patients and takes the extra time listen to them and discuss their skin concerns. I had Mohs surgery for skin cancer that was on my nose. She followed up with lasers to make the scar look better. People are amazed when they see how good it looks. I have also had other laser treatments on my face and so pleased with the results. Dr. Lee is a perfectionist and takes a lot of pride in her work. I highly recommend Dr. Lee.

Dr. Lee knows her business. She's extremely knowledgeable and for that reason I feel safe in her hands. I've gone to other offices where I never saw the actual doctor and the results looked it. I always return to Dr. Lee. She does run a no nonsense office that some may be put off by, but I find her pleasant and respect her knowledge.

I highly recommend Dr. Christine Lee, based on her extensive dermatological laser experience, training, education, reputation and results. Dr. Lee is the ONLY doctor I would entrust for CO2 Laser Resurfacing Surgery (acne scars /wrinkles). Dr. Lee is very trustworthy; she thoroughly and honestly educates the patient on any risks or alternative procedures so the patient can make the best possible informed decision. I now understand why Dr. Lee is known nationally as "The Queen of Laser."
