    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.
    Hi, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Dr. Lee strives to provide the highest possible level of care to each patient, including ensuring his or her concerns are heard and addressed, so he takes patient input very seriously. Although federal law precludes us from commenting on specific patient information online, I would like to opportunity to discuss this situation further. Please call me at 925-939-8585. Thank you, Natalie Bow, Front Office Manager

    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.
