      in Jackson, WY |
      After 22 years of very limited hearing in one ear, misdiagnosed by other doctors, Dr. Lee reconstructed my middle ear and I can hear again. He explained and answered all of my questions before the surgery. He is a very competent, gifted and humble man.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Lee says...

      Dr. Lee completed his fellowship in pediatric ENT at The Children's Hospital in Denver. This makes him the only fellowship trained otolaryngologist in Eastern Idaho. Because of this additional training, treatment of complex conditions of the ear, nose and throat such as cleft lip/palate, severe to profound hearing loss, difficult to treat nasal problems and cancer of the head and neck area is available locally.
