Patient Reviews (4)
Boise, ID |
I have a reoccurring condition that flares about every six months on average. I called the office to make arrangements for a treatment and waited for two days with no response. If it is something that they cannot resolve it would have been nice to know instead of waiting for a call for two days which I never got only to have the condition get worse. This just seems unethical to me.

Dr. Lee is great. Unfortunately his office staff treated me like a number. We will not be following up with him due to poor effort on their part to return phone calls after surgery or get prescriptions filled. Almost like once surgery was finished we no longer mattered.

My 2 1/2 yr old daughter was in need of removing her tonsils. Be so young, we were very reluctant. Dr. Lee was easy to work and schedule with. Following her surgery, he even provided us with his personal number to reach him over the weekend if necessary. Very personal and patient. Would recommend him to anyone needing and ENT.
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.
