Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lee "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."

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.
