Patient Reviews (3)
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.
in Brooklyn, NY |
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.
