Learn about Dr. Lee

Care Philosophy

As the son of two teachers, I see my physician role as a student, teacher, and surgeon for my patients.  I try to learn about what is important medically and personally for each of my patients, and I believe that providing information and education are just as important as treatment.  I recommend appropriate examinations and diagnostic tests that may detect or prevent common ocular conditions as well as provide medical and surgical treatment.  When treatment is required, I prefer to discuss the numerous medical and surgical options with my patients and recommend the best option for each patient.  Most importantly, I dedicate myself to continuing medical education to supplement over 20 years of experience so I may deliver the best medical and surgical care for my patients

Dr. Lee is a treasure! I had cataracts removed from both eyes, and Toric lenses inserted. I now have perfect vision--I never knew vision could be so crisp! The procedure was easy and painless. I only wish I had done it sooner!

Front office staff is rude, unprofessional and poorly trained. One of the receptionists shouted my personal medical information across the room. The other acted as if I was bothering her when I asked for assistance with the kiosk.
