Patient Comments (5)
New York, NY |
Dr. Lee seems highly competent. I suspect he's a fine doc and should I have additional problems I may return to his care. However patients should expect to wait 75 minutes or more for a quick follow up appointment. Also disappointing was his failure to call with test results as he'd promised to do instead delegating the task to a PA who couldn't answer my questions.

Dr. Lee performed surgery on my arm and my knee. He was very approachable, very attentive and made you feel like your problems were important to him. I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon.
in Brooklyn, NY |
Dr. Steven Lee has performed three surgeries on me thus far. All went very well. I say thus far because I have a few conditions that creates instability and other problems with all of my joints. He is very smart, listens carefully, and always explains my options and outlook clearly and with compassion. I am impressed with his dedication to continued learning and research, which keeps him very current and never set in one way of looking at a problem. I recommend him highly.

Willing to spend time explaining, answering questions, etc. Office was flexible and let me change appointment times, professional, and friendly.
in White Plains, NY |
Outstanding caring and knowledgeable individual. He personally called me while at home recovering to see how I was feeling and saw/spoke to me several times before and after procedures (bi-lateral) to answer all of my questions. Billing for insurance went seamlessly. He had hours that worked around my schedule. I was even happy with his follow-up. He worked well with my other doctors. I have had surgeries in the past; I would highly recommend him and would do surgery with him again if needed.
