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.

I am so sorry that you received poor attention to your requests from my office staff following surgery. I take your concerns very seriously.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

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.
