Well until today we have always loved Dr. Lee and his staff. Today changed that. As of 7/8/20 there is still no solid proof of any immunity to Covid-19. When we were called to confirm our appt for today, I asked IMPLICITLY, if EVERY body would be wearing a mask because if not we would not be confirming. Last time there masks were "optional". So EVERY body had a mask except one. That would be Dr. Lee himself. His excuse is he somehow is magically immune because he had it a couple of months ago. THIS IS NOT PROVEN by the CDC, nor the WHO. As of yesterday Dr. Fauci, an epidemiologist said there was no clear determination as to how long, there is immunity, if at all. I feel that Dr. Lee has now put my life at risk. My husband wore his mask, why is it so difficult for you Dr. Lee? He protected you and you disrespected him and his family. Sad really good doctors are hard to find. I guess we were wrong.

Dr. Lee demonstrates a genuineness of heart that often is lacking in health care across all disciplines. While Dr. Lee often depends on imaging and objectivity that may demonstrate a patently obvious reason as to why the patient may complain of pain, his keen assessment skills come to bear in those subjective complaints that requuire more thought and consideration. My quality of life has been restored to a noticeable level because ofcaring and expertise.

Don't know what some of these other reviews are talking about- probably angry dope addicts. Dr. Lee always takes time to answer my questions and is very respectful. I recommend him highly.

After my first appointment with Dr. Lee - I made it to my car before I broke into tears. Who is this person? In all my years, I have never run across a physician who is as arrogant and hostile as this guy. I don't pay good money to have someone insult and bully me! I definitely won't be going back for a second visit! There are too many good doctors around!

Had about 5 good visits with him, 4 visits I would leave feeling sad wondering what I did to deserve such treatment. I know everyone has bad days so I let a few slide. My last visit I left crying and betrayed. I thought doctors were supposed to want to help you above all else. Doctors get paid bc we need them. He has the potential to be a great Dr. if he humbled himself. Dr.s should treat patients how they want to be treated. I was sad to let him go but I need a Dr. I can feel at ease with.

Bedside manner definitely needs work he’s arrogant treats his patient like we are a waste of his time and like drug seekers even when no one even asked for meds and have never asked. We pay too much money to be treated this way. My friend who also goes to see him told me what a jerk he was to her and I like to use my own judgment so I gave him a chance. I gave him many chances too many I just can’t deal with a Dr. who is Jekyll or Hyde. He needs therapy.

Terrible bedside manner. No empathy, condescending, and rude. Asks questions, but will not let you answer. Interrupts when you attempt to answer his questions. Arrogant and argumentive, & judgemental.

Dr. Lee is great, but the rest of the visit is a deterrent. His DS PA is too casual and overshares her personal life. Hammond office experience is more professional and prompt, but an inconvenient driving distance. I don't like having to go through this ordeal every 6 months in case a back pain emergency crops up, but alternative is no RX called in while you wait 2 weeks + 1.25-1.5 hours for a necessary visit at convenient location.
