    I have been seeing Dr. Lee for a long time. He has been a very wonderful doctor and has restored my vision. I trust him with my life. He is a professional, who is focused. Yes, the wait is sometimes long. The nurses are fantastic. Especially Sheila. If you want warm and fuzzy, look elsewhere. Myself, I want the very best care and Dr Lee is it!

    Dr Lee is a top-notch eye surgeon. I understand what others say about bedside manner. But with someone aiming lasers into my eyes, I want to be sure that he or she is one of the country's best at what he does, and that is Dr. Lee.

    Dr. Lee is not patient oriented. Does not look directly at you when speaking. He appears to be a severe germaphobe. Wears a face mask during exams, having his office staff handling and touching the patient. When I asked about my eye condition he could not answer questions in a way that made sense to me. I have real concerns about Dr. Lee, will not be returning. I never mind waiting for good care but having an 11:50am apt and getting done at 3pm is no longer acceptable.

    I would not recommend Dr Lee. I've been to more than 5 different retina doctors and regretfully my experience with Dr Lee was the worst. The experience was chaotic and adversarial and the staff were pulled away from their tasks multiple times. My visual acuity test was compromised because they dialated me beforehand and it was difficult to explain that it was a useless result. He did not listen at all and was condescending and rough with my exam. He rushed through the visit and I was very upset.

    I understand how busy he is as a surgeon and as a doctor in his office, but his bedside manner is something to be desired, he shows lack of confidence that has to be reassured by his attending nurses. Also wouldn't hurt for him to try and talk to his patients and help them feel better rather than running out the door to avoid talking.. Im not even the one being seen I'm just there taking care of a patient

    My experience has been to expect long waits, 1 1/2 - 2 hrs +. The last appointment I walked out. Exam rooms were full and two clients ahead of me by my count. I had to get back to work. Very poor scheduling. Am looking for new Der.
    No beside manner. Poor explanations.
