Dr. Lee is very knowledgeable and experienced. He asked the questions that were needed to see if I needed treatment to continue at this time. He answered my questions in a very efficient way so could understand. He let me know of treatments that could happen in the future, if needed. I was pleased with my time with Dr. Lee. He was kind in all he did. I would highly recommend him.

Doctor did not explain anything about his diagnosis or treatment plan. He was rushed. I had to ask questions and I got brief answers in return. Doctor seemed rushed and didn't care much. Also didn't explain steps if my symptoms worsen. Didn't give me a course of action or clarity at all. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone, and I will have to seek another doctor out If my symptoms persist or worsen.
