I've been with Dr. Lee since I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at 14 and I can't imagine seeing another endo. He's always been a trusted and reliable part of my life and managing my disease, and I could not recommend him enough as a thorough doctor and a supportive confidant.

I a.m. obsessed with Dr. Lee on every level. He is an incredible doctor! Compassionate, attentive, caring...and he listens to you. Dr. Lee was the only doctor that believed me when I said that there was something wrong with me, while the other doctors dismissed me. He is magic. I love him and would recommend him to anyone. He has changed my life for the better

The entire experience was first rate. Scheduling was easy even though Dr. Lee was booked out. The staff was excellent as well very friendly, helpful and professional. Dr. Lee was is all that we want in a doctor...genuine, thoughtful, personable, experienced and knowledgeable. He took the time to get to know me and my situation. Many doctors rush through the appointment and are quick to diagnose. I came away from the appointment feeling appreciated and understood.

Please don't waste your time unless its about losing weight. He never looked me in the eye had no course of action or help for THYRIOD inexplained weight loss and stomach problems although a chart in his office reflects all these problems. See a Doctor who really cares about your life. He is not knowledgeable about Thyroid which runs the whole system. would never recommended this guy.
