I would NEVER recommend this doctor to anyone! This Mayo cardiologist failed to diagnose a severely occluded coronary artery and told me that the angina I was experiencing was not cardiac related. He stated that in front of his entire team while I was hospitalized. He did not bother to perform any testing. Another cardiologist found the blockage that he missed.

Dr. Lee was calm and thorough. He gave me alternatives and options for the issue I experienced. He showed me what causes my medical issue, and was quite detailed, keeping the explanation in terms that I understood. I was very happy with his honesty, his knowledge and his ability to speak to me without using medical terms, so I understood the issue.

Zero stars. Dr. Lee did not admit my husband as needed to be done. Told him to come back the following week (6 days later) even after viewing his angiogram that showed several blockages. His attitude was one of careless indifference when we asked questions about our concerns.
