Learn about Dr. Lee

Care Philosophy

Always interested in the subject of Endocrinology, I completed a rotation as a medical student in the specialty. I realized during that time that Endocrinology relies heavily on patient interaction and patient empowerment, and endocrinology affords me the opportunity to counsel patients personally and to educate them. Working as a diabetes specialist has been especially rewarding because I am able to track a patient's progress and see them improve. Having devoted my early career to working in Brooklyn hospitals, I am excited to return to Brooklyn. I look forward to serving the community that has helped to shape my education.

A very warm and kind professional. Dr Lee listens to you and explains things in detail, she takes her time with you. And is extremely pleasant.
in Brooklyn, NY |
She was a delight as a person, seemed excellent as a doctor and spent a great deal If time with me. She elicited my thoughts and concerns and gave me total confidence she could help - if we worked in partnership.

I had my first consultation with Dr. Lee the other week. She was very nice, informed, and she made me feel at ease. Would highly recommend.
in New York, NY |
I saw Dr.Lee to look after my thyroid issue I've been dealing with for 20+ years. Having this issue for so long, I feel more educated than most patients she likely has seen. Her staff was god and the office clean, however she referenced online resources a number of times during my appointment which really scared me. I found a new doctor in a nearby clinic who was also a specialist and I've been far more satisfied there.

Dr.Lee is fine, she helps with diabetes but nothing more. She makes for me many referrals but herself can not help much.
