Dr. Janet Lee is board certified in Internal Medicine. Since finishing her residency training at UC Irvine Medical Center in 2004, she specialized in hospital based medicine in San Bernardino and in Los Angeles County. In November of 2010, Dr. Lee established her practice in the Southbay, serving patients in Torrance, Rancho Palos Verdes, Redondo Beach, and surrounding cities. She is welcoming new patients accepting most insurance plans including Medicare, PPO, and THIPA HMO. We are no longer accepting new Health Care Partner HMO plans. Dr. Lee is attending at both Torrance Memorial and Little Company of Mary Medical Center.
From cell to bedside, Dr. Lee is a strong advocate of preventative medicine, believing that health maintenance and quality of life are best achieved through life style modifications, with medical intervention only as a last option. She spends a lot of her time counseling patients on healthy life style choices, helping to develop good sustainable habits. Open minded to various types of alternative medicine choices available, she believes that Internal Medicine will be safest at bringing alternative therapies to practice.
When all efforts at conservation are exhausted, intervention will be prescribed with efficiency; with only the latest medical knowledge, technological advances, clarity, and compassion. Always current on the latest medical journals, Dr. Lee believes that evidenced based medicine should only be the beginning in every patient’s journey through healthcare, not always the end. Therefore, every patient will be cared for as an individual, and will never be made to feel like a statistic.
It is her goal to earn, through knowledge, technology, clarity and compassion, the trust of all her patients that will last a lifetime. …
