Dr. Lee saved my life I am 37yrs old and my only option was to get my mitro valve replaced, but he was able to repair it. I am very thankful for him and his skills to do this type of surgery. So I would recommend him and staff with any heart surgery needs. Recovery has been great so far 2 weeks later.

We were referred to this Practice by an Oncologist and am so happy that we got Dr. Lee. He Explained the procedure that he recommended, we had studied his credentials and was confident that he could remove the lung cancer. The outcome of the surgery was EXCELLENT. Cancer free with no need for any additional treatments. THANK you Dr. Lee.

Dr. Lee did two surgeries, one a repair of my mitral valve and the other drainage of fluid from my lungs. Because of the excellent care I received, I would recommend Dr. Lee for anyone needing heart surgery. The nurses on the second floor, which was Dr. Lee's floor, took wonderful care of me in my recovery from both proceedures.
