Dr. Lee was clear and concise with his findings. He made a scary situation, calm and I was able to hear him and more importantly he made sure that I understood his medical jargon.

Dr Lee asked no questions, showed no empathy for the back pain I suffer through every day, and offered no solutions for the pain. My appointment was just another billable visit for him. For me, it was a huge disappointment and a waste of time in my effort to seek help. The complete lack of interest was shocking and angered me.

Doctor Lee has “gifted hands” as he quickly ascertains where your pain is and gives good insight as to the diagnosis and treatment. His specialty of pain management has been working for me. Doctor Lee is the best!

I have been a patient of Dr Lee due neck and back problems. I never wait very long to get an appointment or in the waiting room.Have been to the Malvern, Exton as Collegeville offices.Dr Lee asks the right questions in a calm and professional way. I especially like how he steps you through the injection procedure while he is doing it. Always get relief from the injections.I am grateful for Dr Lee and his staff.I always recommend him if some one needs non surgical pain management for their spine

Very poor interaction with patient. Barely asks questions. Spends about two minutes with you and then leaves the room and send in the nurse to explain what he wants you to do for care. He spends no time at all with you. The lack of concern on his part or what he portrays to you is horrible. I left feeling so frustrated This was my third time. I kept feeling like each time he would be better or offer a better treatment option and not at all. Won’t be going back. No more chances.

With 3 years of documented medical evidence, Dr Lee told me there was nothing wrong with me, prescribed physical therapy (???) and wanted to see me a month later. Why, if there is supposedly nothing wrong with me? Bozo, steer clear!

Dr. Lee is the type of Dr that keeps you at ease but always let's you know what he thinks is best and he will want to hear you and your concerns. He knows what he's doing but so far from cocky it leaves you feeling pretty lucky. I highly recommend Dr Lee over and over again AAA+++

I was very unhappy with my experience with Dr Lee. I went to him for severe neck pain and he did nothing for me. He told me to go back to Physical Therapy and then left me and sent in the nurse to tell me he wasn't coming back and I need to return to physical therapy. I left his office, went directly to the ER where they gave me some steriods and Motrin to easy my pain and it helped. Thanks for nothing Dr Lee and caring so much for your patients.

He was very nice. He did a complete check of my MRI of my lower back. Ask me a lot of questions. Told me what needed to be done and scheduled me for the surgical procedure. Which went well. His surgical staff was exceptional. I’m happy to say my pain level is much better. Thank you!!

Dr Lee is a very knowledgeable and excellent communicator. He answers all my questions regarding procedures, alternatives and possible complications. In epidural procedures he is very efficient and talks thru the procedure to keep you informed of what is being done. I highly recommend him. Peter Hunt
