He was incredible! I went in needing a knee injury that I had a confusing MRI for. I saw a different specialist before but he didn’t explain anything and just said what he was gonna do and I just get like he didn’t care and just wanted me out of there. Dr. Lee was awesome in taking his time to explain everything and why he was going to do what he was planning and he explained after what he did and how carefully he searched (I basically had a torn meniscus and partially torn ACL but it ended up being a torn piece of my synovial causing me problems) and I feel great and definitely never felt rushed when talking with him so I was able to get answers to all my questions.

Dr. Lee has been fantastic! My son is a pianist who broke his elbow, and Dr. Lee has gone above and beyond in making sure he heals correctly. All of the staff are also friendly, helpful, and available for questions.

THIS DOCTOR IS A QUACK AND REFERS HIS PATIENTS OUT!!! He cannot fix things and performs surgery making it worse!!!...he scolded my spouse after treating and diagnosing for tennis elbow on first visit which he gave injection and for. Spouse had pain months later thinking another injection would help again but was SCOLDED and Dr. Lee saying now it's not that and told spouse to take ibuprofen and walked out. He said nothing else...no care at all. A second surgery had to be done on myself from his

I would not recommend this doctor to any one! Totally messed up my wife's shoulder surgery. Made it worse. Had to have another doctor fix it right. Another six weeks of recovery for her. Even gave him a second chance, when I had pain in my elbow. Basically told me, to bad,nothing I could do, and was completely rude after I waited 1 1/2 hours in the waiting room. He absolutely does not know what he is doing. Was shocked at the rudeness, and shortness of this doctor.
