Since day one that, I met Dr. Lee. Dr. Lee has always been professional, caring and understanding of my health issues. When I had surgery Dr. Lee explain everything to me prior my surgery that took place at St Vincent Hospital his staff the people at the hospital we're excellent. I continue to see Dr. Lee and up to this moment I have no complaints, I wouldn't change anything. I highly recommend Dr. Lee. He takes the time to explain instructions and makes sure you understand them.

Dr. Lee was completely thorough in his examination and explanation. His listening and communication skills are the best I've seen in a doctor. He is very knowledgeable which is to be expected but his demeanor and sense of humor make it very easy to talk to him.

Dr. Lee is amazing. He walked me through every part of my illness and procedure and made me feel as comfortable as possible. He is funny and realistic and really knows what's best for his patients. By the time I was in the hospital waiting for surgery, I was anxious to see him because I knew he would calm my nerves. I am really glad to have met Dr. Lee.

Dr. Lee, quite frankly, is a world class colorectal surgeon. He is a 10 out of 10 A++++ amazing leader in this field and teaches colectomy in several languages, I understand. My colon quit working out of the blue for no reason and after all options failed, I went to Dr. Lee and he did a thorough analysis (!) and I had an ileo-rectal total colectomy . My small intestine is hooked up to my rectum. (No bag). I'm on a GI forum and its Dr Lee that made this work. Period. There is no better.

I went to Dr. Lee several years ago for surgery. He did a perfect job! I recently had another issue and was relieved to know he is still in the Portland area! The exam went very well. He had access to my old records which was totally helpful. He listened to me without haste and gave me great instructions for what I needed to do next. I recommend him highly.

Dr. Lee is very personable and easy to talk to. We spent more time talking about general topics such as dieting, exercise, and books, all unrelated to why I came in. And about that, he was very honest and forthcoming with options on how to proceed. I recommend him highly
