    Dr Lee is intelligent, an expert in Retina care and is incredibly nice and kind. He is proactive in taking care of your retinas, go see him if you are worried about macular degeneration or if your parents or siblings have it.If you already have a retina problem Dr Lee is the expert you want, he is up to date on treatments and will discuss and explain your options. The entire staff is kind and pleasant, the offices are clean and comfortable, the parking for the office is convenient.

    Dr. Lee is a very professional doctor and treats you with respect and you don't feel like a number. Is knowledgeable in his professional as well. Does not rush you and explains things in detail. Very rare to get it all. Four years ago I should have written a review when he did emergency laser surgery on my eye saving me from a retinal detachment. Left the State and have returned and again same great treatment. Office staff good too. Highly recommend him.

    I have sight in my right eye because of Dr. Lee. He is dedicated and caring. His number one concern is that the patient and family understand what is happening, and that they can ask questions.
