What People Say About Dr. Tommy Lee, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Reply
I have been a patient of Dr. Lee for 26 years and when I first contracted CAD at age 54, Dr. Lee was very aggressive in his treatment with angioplasties and a atherectomy. He kept my vessels open for 9 years before I had CBP surgery. Since he has been my cardiologist and has treated me with state of the art meds. He has always been available for me and an advocate for me when hospitals and insurance didn't want to pay for procedures. The best in Bakersfield.

Heart condition? You have come to the right place . I have been under Dr. Lee’s care for probably 20 years. I have received great care and treatment. Dr. Lee took time to explain my condition. He is kind and personable. He is very knowledgeable and is respected by his surgical team. I had the opportunity to be given this information first hand . Pam Smith

Dr. Lee, is experienced and knowledgeable and just as important he cares about his patients. He is truthful when the patient needs to hear it, but also gentle with his words when need be. Truly would recommend him for any cardiac care. Have no complaints about his staff and services provided, they represent the same supportive attitude as their doctor does. My husband has a complicated situation and I really believe how life has been prolonged because of their care.
