Patient Comments (6)
in Loris, SC |
Dr. Wendy Lee is the doctor who listened, observed, diagnosed and began successfully treating my inflammatory arthritis caused by an autoimmune disease. She also discovered and retested to confirm, I had been exposed to Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. A test other Drs. had not checked. Each appointment I attend, Dr. Lee meets me with friendly professionalism and an ear to listen to my positive and/or negative symptoms since my last visit. I highly recommend her skills to all.
I saw Dr. Lee twice, one year apart. On neither visit did she examine me, ask me any questions about how I was feeling or otherwise do anything more than read the form I had completed and offer me a shot of hyaluronic acid for my knee, which I did not need--perhaps she could have figured that out if she had looked at my knee. I will not be seeing her again.

One of the finest doctors I have in my life. Intelligent, professional, listens and responds to unexpected emergencies. I see her at both Myrtle Beach and Murrells Inlet offices. Very highly recommended and have been with Dr. Lee 13 years. Highly dedicated to her patients. Also good personnel running the office.
Dr. Lee has seen me for RA and Fibromylia for many years. She is continually supportive and listens to me when I tell her how I am feeling. I feel that she genuinely cares for her patients and does her best to address all of your symptoms and concerns. I deal with a lot of pain and she has helped me manage that pain and hopefully keep these issues from progressing. I have felt comfortable talking to her from the first time I met her. The staff is exceptionally friendy.

I saw Dr Lee about a month ago. I was in a lot of joint pain. I received a full set of X-rays and blood work. Dr Lee explained everything and recommend treatment. I now feel much better and my quality of life is improved.
