      Started seeing Dr. Lee after my stoke and was not rushed through my visit. I found him to be very attentive and concerned about my condition. He and his staff are very friendly.

      Dr Lee is caring and concerned about my health. I used to see his wife who retired. Dr Lee took alot of time going over my whole chart and all of my medications and all of my previous medical history. I would definitely recommend him to other patients. I did have to wait a little while in waiting room but since he spent that amount of time with me he probably takes time with all of his patients. I would definitely recommend him to other patients.

      Dr. Lee listened to me and made me feel very comfortable. He offered me more information, insight, hope and positivity than I had previously found. I left his office feeling great and knew that I was finally in caring, capable hands. That was a big relief! The staff has been great too!

      I liked Dr Lee but he was vague about ordering a test. What I heard was that he would order the test if I did not improve by my next visit (in 3 months after taking the medications he prescribed a chance to work). I was surprised when I was contacted less the a week after my appointment to have the test scheduled.

      I’m not sure why he seems to have such high reviews. Based on my experience, I would say the high reviews aren’t actual reviews. I waited two hours to be seen. As a new patient, he asked zero questions, didn’t ask why I was there. He didn’t do a exam. Everything I said was met with great suspicion as if I was making things up when I was simply telling him what my other specialist have said. I can’t stress enough what it feels like to be terrified of your future when you’ve been diagnosed with a devastating disease. A disease that has robbed you of your life. I have no life now. No joy, no peace. I just exist. He could have cared less. In the paperwork it said the first appointment would last 60 minutes because you would get a thorough exam. He was in and out in 5 minutes. Our health care system is just as broken as I am & no one cares.

      I've been seeing Dr. Timothy Lee for at least 3 yrs now for migraine management. He'd run every possible diagnostic test and, as I've been for 30 yrs, he was as much at a loss as to how to treat them as I becuz pills can't absorb in my system fast enuff to prevent or relieve them. I finally asked about one of the new injectable prevention meds and he and his staff worked for 4 months to get my insurance to approve it. I'm incredibly grateful that he did becuz it's changed my life! His staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful, and Dr. Lee has the best "bedside manner"! He takes his time every visit to check my overall well-being and inquire as to how my migraines are being managed. I'm sure I could find a neurologist closer to me, but it's worth the drive to go to him for the amazing care I get at his office. I highly recommend him to anyone suffering from migraines in particular but for overall neurology care in general. He & his staff are so compassionate & helpful so I love them!

      Dr Lee takes time to really talk to you about all your questions and concerns. His testing is done in a way that does not frighten which I was really concerned when I scheduled for my mother to get seen,

      Dr Lee is professional, knowledgeable, and caring. He spends whatever amount of time is necessary each time I have an appointment. He communicates clearly and understandably his thinking about any diagnosis and treatment. I have been under his care for a number of years for several neurological problems and have always felt that I have been well cared for and that my health has improved due to his care. The office staff are always pleasant and professional as well.
