Being a doctor myself, I would highly recommend Dr Lee. My career depends on my ability to move and when I came in with a herniated Disc, Dr Lee did all the research before he even met me, knew exactly what was going on and presented all the options. He never tried to pressure me into surgery but did recommend it. The procedure was done with perfection as I had no post operative pain and complications. I was walking the same day. I will always recommend Dr Lee. He is a brilliant surgeon.

I would highly recommend dr Lee to anyone he and his nurses not only changed my life in the best way possible but not to long after surgery which was successful by the way was the main pain gone ofcourse a little sore that's normal but he and his nurses were all so helpful and extremely friendly. He and his assistants deserve the best feed back and appreciation.

I had back surgery yesterday at CDH an L5-L6 Discectomy. I must say it is an overwhelming success. I have had NO pain either from the injury or from the surgery. I want to thank Dr Lee and would wholeheartedly recommend him. He works miracles. Ronald Hafeman

I have had excellent care from Dr. Lee and his entire staff. He spends the time to review everything with me and give me options, making sure that I completely understand everything. I have had almost immediate response when I called the office with a question or concern. He performed 2 cervical surgeries on me and I was extremely well cared for by him and the hospital staff. I wouldn't want anyone else doing spine surgery. He is an awesome, caring physician.

Staff is rude. Have been told off by one of the staff two times for merely asking a question. Had an appointment with Dr. Lee and he blew me off. I arrived at his office and was told that he got called away to emergency surgery. Then they told me that they interrupted Dr. Lee during surgery to ask him if he would be able to see me later this day. He replied that he couldn't, but in all honesty I have severe doubts that they interrupted his emergency surgery to ask about my appointment.
