Dr. Lee listened to my issues with my hands, gave me options and helped me develope a surgical plan to regain use of both hands. He completed two surgeries and I am pleased with the outcome. I would definately recomend Dr. Lee.

I saw Dr. Lee for the first time for carpal tunnel in both wrists. He was very upfront with me what my option are. We did an injection in one of my wrist before I even left the office. I have never had a steroid injection, but I have heard they can be painful. Dr. Lee has was great, no pain and the injection started working fast. Two days later, I have relief already. Looking forward to my next visit to do the other wrist and discuss when to do the surgery

Love him. Fixed my very wonky broken finger after another doctor did a horrible job. Usually is running late but I expect it so don't make plans for right afterwards and I bring a book. :-)

Dr Lee and his staff couldn't have been more kind , compassionate or professional.He took a deformed hand with little or no mobility (I had 2broken bones in my arm), and left me with the beautiful hand I originally had! I will never forget the experience I had at Dr Lee's office and surgical center.
