Very good with patients. Answers all questions. Very personable. Support staff is excellent. I have recommended a number of people to Dr. Lee.

Dr. Lee was very professional and explained my condition so I could understand. He didn't push any procedure and made me feel comfortable with his reasons for an MRI. I'll definitely recommend him to the older ladies in my congregation.
