Excellent, professional, top notch service. ..treated me like a rock star...I would definitely recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Lee. is a consummate professional. I went to him for a minor hand fracture. Unlike another orthopedic surgeon I saw who was quick, informal and basically pushed me towards surgical procedure, Dr. Lee took the time to explain both options and gave me what I felt was a more honest assessment w pros and cons of both options. My hand has fully healed and is perfect condition via non-surgical healing. I highly recommend Dr. Lee.

Hospitalized due to a partially amputated middle finger that became infected. He was able to save the finger from being totally amputated.

12/2/15 I had my R-hand operated for trigger finger, what I complain as a cyst feeling at the base of the the thumb (small round ball that was painful to the touch) & carpel tunnel where I could only write my name once or twice before it was too tired to continue. As of today 5/27/16, That small round ball at the base of the thumb feeling is no longer there. Trigger finger was gone but has return & I can write my signature maybe 4 times, still can't write a full page.Heel of them is tender

Dr. Lee operated and fixed my broken wrist in 2010. I find him to be kind, patience and knowledgeable. HT Wellisch
