Dr Lee performed plastic surgery on my 87 year old mom for malignant melanoma in situe. Excellent result! He is a master at what he does. You cannot even see that a quarter sized piece of her cheek was removed. He is very meticulous and he is nice, too. His staff is nice. We saw him in his Issaquah office. Would highly reccomend him.

I had significant Moh’s surgery on my neck after BCC. Dr Lee was asked to perform the surgical close because of his expertise. He was able to do a great job without a skin graft which was fantastic. I am very happy. I followed up after surgery in his office. The suture line is hardly visible now. Thanks for a great job.

Dr. Lee is fantastic! He worked with me to repair a scarred lip that developed as the result of a fall. After trying the conservative approach of injections, we both determined that the outcome was not what he or I had hoped for. Together the decision was made to have the scar tissue surgically removed and my upper lip reshaped to normal form. Dr. Lee's perfectionism is unparalleled. In addition to his surgical precision, he approached my lip repair with thoughtful consideration for a "perfect" end result. The entire experience with Dr. Lee and his caring staff was exceptional.

I had a mohs procedure on my nose by another doctor and then Dr Lee had to close the site and repair it after the healing. Dr Lee and his entire staff were great. Really put me at ease since I’m not good with shots etc and especially on my nose! None of my friends can tell I had anything done. I have had several procedures for different things over the years and this doctor and staff are at the top!

Walking into this office I felt welcomed and put at ease. I had a melanoma on my cheek that would require extensive surgery. Dr. Lee calmed my nerves for this scary procedure and I am very grateful for his professional attitude throughout everything. My melanoma required Dr. Lee to open up a large portion of my right cheek and after a couple months there were no scars and I am fully healed with no cancer present! Thank you Dr. Lee for taking such good care of me, your skills are very much appreciated.

I had surgery with Dr. Lee in January 2020 and received a reconstructive rhinoplasty and septoplasty. I had Mohs surgery with a Dermatologist nine months prior to remove basal cell carcinoma from my nose, which left my nose misshaped and unattractive. Dr. Lee did an amazing job! I visited four doctors prior to Dr. Lee so I knew what questions to ask, but he addressed every question before I had a chance to ask. I honestly never waited more than 3 minutes in the waiting room and his staff was so wonderful. My nose looks better than it did before the skin cancer and I can breathe great as well! Also, he was a recommendation from my Mom who had a successful septoplasty with him. We both highly recommend Dr. Lee.

I saw Dr. Lee in 2018 to correct a deviated septum that was causing me breathing issues. I COULD NOT have been happier with the care and treatment I received from him. His calm demeanor and vast knowledge immediately put me at ease upon meeting him. He explained all aspects of the procedure clearly and what kind of results I could expect. I had my surgery 2 years ago this January. I am still amazed with what Dr. Lee was able to accomplish. I highly recommend going to see him.

I can't say enough positive things about Dr. Samson Lee. He is an amazing and talented surgeon who truly shows respect and concern for his patients. I had an extensive basal cell cancer on my nose that required a forehead flap (my worst nightmare) and reconstruction of my nose. It was a traumatic experience but Dr. Lee got me through it with kindness, compassion and technical expertise. By the end I said he cared more about my nose than I did:-). It has been 9 months and most people have no idea what I lived through. I completely trust and appreciate Dr. Lee and his assistant Natalie and feel very fortunate to have him as my doctor. BTW my husband also had a nasal surgery with Dr. Lee and could not be happier with the result. It changed his life!! Dr. Lee is the best...

It was great all the way through. Sewed my ear back on and did graft and other work to finish it. Scary to look at in the beginning but a three inch "Y" on the side of my head is literally not noticeable. And Dr. Lee had the best grip on bedside manner that I can remember. My other surgeon sent his family there. Great choice.

Went to see him for options to fix my deviated septum. first appointment was quick, he answered all questions and offered two options for surgery. I decided on the rhino/septoplasty combination. Surgery one month later. He told my mom while I was under what to expect for the swelling. Now my cast is off and my nose looks great! Very straight and I can tell my breathing is going to be 100x better. He’s a great doctor and a great surgeon.

Dr Lee is highly competent and a kind surgeon. He repaired my nose following skin cancer removal. This required taking cartilage from my ear and then using a skin flap from my smile line. My work colleagues are amazed at the work. It's been six month and it is barely noticeable now. I would recommend him without reservation for any necessary facial surgery.

I'm going to make this as simple to understand as possible. If you might need reconstuctive surgery...and you're fortunate enough to have Dr. Lee as your surgeon...rest assured that you're being taken care of by the best. Done deal. Dr. Lee and the rest of his staff are very accomodating and friendly which, in itself, does a lot to help through a traumatic experience. Thank you, Dr. Lee. Sincerely, Michael G. Odenius

Prescribed me Levaquin after spending all of five minutes with me, for a 'supposed' sinus infection. This antibiotic is not recommended for sinus infections and was already black boxed. I was given no warning.

First and foremost, I am extremely happy with my interactions with Dr. Lee and the surgery Dr. Lee performed. I was referred to Dr. Lee who recommended rhinoplasty due to a severely deviated septum. From the moment I met him I felt very confident in Dr. Lee. He clearly communicated why he recommended rhinoplasty, what the surgery entailed, how the recovery would progress and what the outcome/benefits would be. The surgery, recovery and results have been almost exactly as he stated.

Dr. Lee is a very intelligent, highly educated surgeon and he's done a wonderful job repairing my face. I had three melanomas removed. They were spaced in such a way he had to take quite a bit of tissue from the side of my nose in order to get the required 5mm of tissue border. He did the skin removal and replaced it with a forehead flap graft. It was amazing how such a large area could be made to look close to normal in one month's time. He's amazing! I truly respect and admire Dr. Lee.
