Patient Comments (2)
in Berkeley, CA |
Dr Lee saw me when my regular eye MD diagnosed a detaching retina. I walked in the busy office on a few minutes notice and walked right past a full waiting room since time in this instance, is of the essence to save eyesight. Dr Lee spent a fair amount of time thoroughly examining both my eyes and announced he felt my retina was intact and I should be fine without surgery. I'm very grateful to him for his professionalism and expertise and I feel confident in his diagnosis.

Appeared to know what he was doing but was dismissive and abrupt.
