I am honestly grateful to have Dr.Lee as my grandmother's provider. She has great bed side manners and takes her precious time to explain situations to my grandmother. It is comforting to know that my grandma is in good hands with Dr. Lee. As a family member, I am grateful to have a reliable, diligent, caring and intelligent doctor to care for my love one.

It was a blessing to find Dr. Maria Lee - a compassionate doctor who speaks English, Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese, and makes house calls. The way she made time for my mother, the level of attention and dedication cannot be expressed in words. Thanks to her, I was able to get a home health aide for mom, still work and be with my family. She's relatable, easy to talk to, and takes the time to explain what can be difficult choices to make. My family and I will forever be grateful to Dr. Lee.

Living alone in Chinatown in New York City in a walk-up apartment was not easy for my Mom. She had kyphosis, severe arthritis and heart problem. For years Dr. Lee was my Mom's physician. She did regular home visits and whenever Mom was sick. I didn't have to worry about my Mom getting to see a physician. Dr. Lee speaks Chinese and understands the Chinese culture. It made it easy for my Mom to follow the instructions. Under Dr. Lee's care, my Mom was able to live at the comfort of her home.

Not only is Dr. Maria Lee an exceptional physician, she is also a wonderful person. She always goes above and beyond to advocate for her patients. My parents have been under Dr. Lee's care for the last three years, and our family is so grateful for her kindness, patience, time, and outstanding medical care. I highly recommend Dr. Lee as a primary care physician.
in New York, NY |
I highly recommend Dr. Lee who was patient and she spent lots of time with my father and mother. I am at peace when I know my parents are in good care of a doctor who listens, pays attention to details, suggests alternatives to treatment plans, and would reply fast under the Clara Medical Response System.
