    My mother in-law referred me to Dr. Lee for a specific surgery and I could not be happier. He got me into surgery the 2nd day after my first appointment. I thought he did a great job explaining what the issue was and how to recover after the surgery. He was very specific with detailed instruction on the healing process. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

    Dr. Lee performed an emergency operation on me several years ago, which probably saved my life. Since then, he has treated me for various symptoms. He takes time to listen to my concerns and answers my questions with patience and understandable terms. I am very appreciative to still be around and to have Dr. Lee working with me to improve my health, which, by the way, is predicated on several hereditary factors over which I have very little, if any control. Thank you Dr. Lee for your work.
    The worst experience ever! He let me leave the hospital with a ball of gauze that had dried inside my rectum. Afterwards, I came down with a deadly strain of c-diff. At first, I was misdiagnosed and once he figured out what it was (I lost 20 pounds in 3 weeks and could barely digest water), I never heard from Dr. Lee again. I and my family had to handle this on our own. By the way, he blamed the matter on the nurses. To this day, I don't know if he even knows if I'm alive or dead.
