Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lee "Through education and experience, I learned two things; "Perform an operation well, and take care of your patients. The rest will fall into place." Through one-on-one interaction and counseling, I help patients become fully aware of their choices for general and weight-loss surgeries. I believe in providing ongoing aftercare to ensure continued success and am one of a select group of physicians who will provide aftercare to patients who have had bariatric surgery performed by another surgeon."

I had a lap band placed by Dr. Lee. He was rude, conceited and spoke down to you. If go in to have a fill and he would overkill it. I told him it's too full. He said go home and let me know how is in a few days. I was charged $300.00 for the fill. I waited over the weekend and could not even...more
