I thought Dr Lee was a very sincere, straight to the point kind of doctor. He listened to my concerns about the recommended procedure and told me what the risks were and odds of success. Dr Lee was very professional, but also easy to talk to. I would most definitely recommend him.

Dr Lee is great, he listens to what I say and gives me options. I like that he doesn’t want to jump into surgery, he will recommend other avenues to see if they help.

Very professional and definitely knows his business. A masterful surgeon. I have had 2 major surgeries over the past 4 years with Dr. Lee and never had any fear. There was a lot of cleanup that needed to be done and am grateful I had Dr. Steven Lee perform both needed surgeries.

Dr. Lee is my new hero. He came highly recommended and I cannot say enough about the quality of care I have received. He is personable, listens intently and is there to problem solve. His staff is extremely efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. I would give 100 stars if I could. I am pain free after almost a year of agony.

I felt Dr Lee was in a rush. He was not as informative I would of appreciated about my L4-L5 issue. He did not address any pain management options even tho i was receiving that from the previous orthopedic specialist who referred me. I had to stop him, as he was rushing out the door, to address this with him. This has left me with concern of his level of post op care. It has resulted in me seeking a second option.

Dr. Lee familiarized himself with my case before seeing me. He was fully prepared to explain what was happening to my back and what my options were. I would highly recommend him if you need an orthopedic doctor.

This was my first time visiting Dr. Lee and I was not happy at all. First of all I believe in good customer service and that a physician should be caring and informative when visited. Instead of providing good care I received questions as to why I came to him instead of another doctor. Well, when you have a title that has the word specialist in it that should be a reason in it self. Very unprofessional is the best word to describe this doctor.

Dr. Lee is exceptional. He combines both high professionalism and skills with high caliber personal, individual care. He listens well, and is attentive to patient's needs, questions, and concerns. He takes into account the patient's whole self, yet directs his expertise at solving the medical problem at hand. He exemplifies excellence. He did amazing work with my "old bones", and I highly recommend him.
