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.

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.
