After the colonoscopy and endoscopy, Dr. Lee left without going over the results . He had a nurse try to explain the results. When we had questions she said she wasn't the doctor but gave a "maybe" answer. We have had numerous doctors in the past. He was the worst! We are going to take the pictures to another doctor and hopefully get answers.

The entire Hoag Endoscopy Center Irvine staff was amazing. Quick and easy, seamless and helpful staff from check-in, to taking back and hooking me up, there was a nurse to make me feel comfortable and safe, and laughing every step of the way. I cannot recommend their office more than mom did, because that's what brought me to Dr Lee for my endoscopy procedure. He was great, and well informative, and so nice! Thank you all!!!
