What People Say About Dr. Way Lee, MD
Reply
Disgusting person. In and out. Doesn’t care about his patients. Had surgery, he never updated my wife or me about how the procedure went. Didn’t know why I was at a follow up appointment. Left my stitches in for double the time other surgeons recommended for no reason. And 3 months later I was in the ER because when the other surgeon in his offices took my stitches out... THEY MISSED ONE. 3 months they left it in cause unnecessary pain and discomfort. Avoid this office. Never take a surgeon who has same day appointments! He is a terrible doctor.
