Complete Lack of Care. My daughter went to see Dr. Lee due to symptoms of extreme fatigue, dizziness and headaches. Dr. Lee was brusque and rude to her, asked her very few questions, and took basic blood tests that she could have had at her GP's office. Despite her iron levels being very low, Dr. Lee advised my daughter that she was fine. She went back to Dr. Lee to be tested for copper toxicity, a condition she was diagnosed with in 2014. Dr. Lee conducted one basic test for copper and then had someone from his office call my daughter to tell her that there was no problem with her copper. My daughter's health began to rapidly deteriorate and her GP conducted at least 30 more blood tests and found she had severe copper toxicity. Dr. Lee did not care about my daughter and was completely dismissive of her. He caused her to be sick 4+ weeks longer given he did not care about properly diagnosing her. I am disgusted with his immoral neglect of my daughter.

Dr. Lee helped me make decisions through my cancer. Asked me tons of questions to make sure there was nothing going wrong with me due to my cocktail of medications. Made changes when necessary. Cancer free for 2 years now. Dr. Lee is also my hematologist as I get blood clots. I would recommend Dr. Lee to everyone. I wouldn't go to anyone else. My life is so good due to his decisions and he makes them with my involvement. I would give Dr. Lee a rating of 10.
