When I found out I had breadt cancer I was afraid and didn't know what to do. My gynecologist recommended Dr. Lee. I am so grateful she did. Dr. Lee was caring and concerned. She gave me excellent care and advice and always comforted me. She performed a nipple sparing bilateral mastectomy and did a beautiful job. Thanks to Dr. Lee I am cancer free. I will be forever grateful to her and for her.

Dr. Lee is amazing. She is confident, empathetic, thorough, and has great discernment for solution to my medical problems. I had gone to several doctors before to treat my medical problem but it was Dr. Lee who had the right prognosis and was able to treat me correctly and provided me with physical relief. I'm so grateful to Dr. Lee.
