Avoid this surgeon if you need a successful prostate surgery as there are many other urologists who are much more talented ,patient ,and listen more carefully than does Dr.Lee .I have no idea how the other patients herein can possibly rank him highly ,but my experience leads me to advise avoid him, and I was a recent surgical patient living in Manhattan.I am so sorry he was recommended to me, and he is much too quick to operate when other methods may prove more adequate.

Dr Lee is a wonderful person, doctor and surgeon. I feel very lucky to have found him in the midst of a serious bladder issue. His staff - which I always believe reflects the character of its leader - is totally professional. The surgery too, was excellent and the overnight stay at the hospital was flawless. I know this is a strong recommendation but believe me, he and everyone at Weill Cornell, earned it.

NJ I have not found a communication problem. But then I studied the literature on the AMS 800 extensively. This made a discussion very productive and a joint decision possible.

I would strongly recommend that you seek at least a second opinion for anything Dr.Lee recommends ,and certainly in our Manhattan there are so many excellent urologists to choose from,my own experience with Dr.Lee was quite negative as you will also read in prior reviews.
