Verified Patient Reviews
I think she was excellent! She made me feel very comfortable she met all my desired needs answered my questions and concerns with care as well as sent me recommendations for other doctors!
Dr. Lee was patient and helpful. She referred me to another doctor for physical therapy the same day. Would highly recommend her and the staff at Prime Performance.
Dr. Lee was one of the first doctors that took the time to listen to my concerns and problems. Often times I feel rushed in a doctor's office. This was the first time that I felt like I was in a safe and caring space.
Dr. Lee was so friendly and easy to work with! She gave me a treatment plan for the injury I came in for and then helped me out with nutrition recommendations since we had plenty of time left on my appointment. She was so positive and friendly. I'm glad I chose to see her.
Was amazed at how fast, nice, and professional the whole thing was.
I've been looking for a primary care physician for a while now and I am very happy I came across this doctor! Office had a very pleasant staff and the atmosphere was much more pleasant than your topical doctors office. I would recommend Dr. Lee to anyone.
Great physician! Very professional and easy to talk to. In and out in 15 min, including wait time. Best service I've received in LA.
Knowledgeable, friendly, and thorough. Glad I made the appointment!
I really liked the doctor but now months later I am still trying to straighten out the bill. My annual physical should be covered but insurance (Aetna) has been rejecting it because the doctor never filled out the appropriate tax paperwork for this office. She should not be advertising accepting my insurance if she hasn't filled out the right paperwork for claims to go through!
Amy is amazing. Her front desk, not at all.
Excellent Doctor. Very knowledgable. Making her my primary care physician ASAP.
She is a great Dr., will be return for sure
Dr. Lee is super informative, relatable, and easy to speak to. She does not pass judgement and really listens, asking follow up questions. She also has a sense of humor. This was my first visit, and I am happy to return when I need to!
After getting over being in DTLA, parking is actually not bad. It's safe, attended and cheap after validation! Next door is Dr.Amy's office and its really nice. Her staff is great and she is professional, personable, knowledgeable and very down to earth. I wasn't rushed and she really listened. She took her time to do things right and ask the right questions. Downtown LA may not be my favorite place but the visits are worth the traffic.
Very pleased! The doctor was very thorough and efficient. I felt confident walking out of her office and feel relieved to know that I am now in her hands, as she seems to be really on top of it!
Office wait was because of me though. I was late trying to find the parking garage. She's very smart and personable. I was very impressed with my first visit.
My visit was great. She listen to my concern and address it right .
She was so great. I'm extremely happy I found her. Her bedside manner is awesome. Thanks again Amy!
She was sweet and the appointment was brief.
She was kind and thorough, plan on returning as needed.
Very friendly, personable and kind. She heard my concerns and offered a treatment plan that included a nutrition plan instead of just writing me a prescription and sending me on my way. Very happy! :)
Fantastic rapport, scheduled a physical with the doctor on the spot for the near future.
Super nice doctor and with a great personality! She has a very holistic approach since she is also trained in nutrition and wellness. Her practice is in a Wellness Center that offers rehabilitation, chiropractic, sports medicine, weight management which is great. Highly reccomend her!
Dr. Lee was great, and her candor was much appreciated. Between her and the front desk, I'd be happy to recommend her/her practice.
I don't know if it was a mistake of the clinic or the mistake of the lab that Prime Performance sent my tests over. But I got charged for tests that were supposed to be 100% covered by my insurance (i've double checked it was the case). Dr. Lee has been telling me that she will take care of this, but it's been 4 months and still remained unsolved. I don't know if she really cares about her patience or...and she did not reach out or whatsoever to tell me the test result or even just follow up the billing problem that I have. I really regretted to go to her for my first ever physical exam. Bad bad bad.
I can't bring myself to see another physician. Amy Lee is just way too pleasant. She's the best.
Wonderful. She was attentive and kind. I was very comfortable even though it was my firs visit.
Again, Dr. Lee is a person who is easy to approach and very helpful. Definitely a person on top of things and makes her patients her top priority.
I was very satisfied!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am very pleased with my appointment with Dr. Lee. She was very easy to talk to and genuinely caring. She answered all my questions thoroughly and was very easy to understand. I couldn't have had a more enjoyable experience. Thanks Dr.Lee!!
Dr. Lee was one of the best MD's I've ever seen! Will count on her as my Primary Physician and will refer friends and family to her as well. Thank you!
She was very personable, asked lots of questions. Gave me a referral to a specialist to better evaluate my condition. I felt very comfortable with her and her ability to oversee my problem.
I felt very comfortable with this Doctor. She was attentive to my questions and spent quality time with me discerning all the issues related to my needs.
Professional as well as the feeling of being cared by a good doctor.
Dr Lee is smart, thoughtful and straightforward. She is a great doctor, whom I highly recommend.
I am a professional in the health field, so I am approaching this review from a slightly different angle than most. My visit with Dr. Lee could not have been better. Her questions allowed me to cover all of my health concerns and prompted me to remember things may not have remembered until the drive home. She is the most up-to-date medical professional I have experienced; recommending non-invasive tests and measurements to further my health goals. I left the office with a nutritional plan and detailed instructions that will promote success and optimize results. Her approach is based on preventative medicine rather than the "here are the six prescriptions for the health matrix you fall into" which is the standard these days. We feel extremely fortunate to have found Dr. Lee, as the doctors we have tried over the last 2 years all have fallen into the medicine for profit category and are more a part of Wall Street than the medical arts. Dr. Lee would be at the opposite end of the scale. I would recommend her highly to anyone.
I was very pleased with the visit with Dr. Lee. She and the nurse were very professional and also had a great "bedside manner. The concerns i had were addressed thoroughly. the support staff were also very pleasant. I would definately recomend Dr. Lee.
I cannot articulate how truly amazing Dr. Lee is. She is the most incredible Doctor I've ever seen and grateful to have found her office. Thank you so much for the wonderful visit. The entire experience was great and I highly recommend her.
Dr. Lee was very professional, but down to earth, which made it very comfortable. This was my first visit with her, but I am sure anything that comes up in the future will be handled competently.
Extremely happy to find an internist local to me. Very professional, easy to communicate with.
It was a very short visit, a basic physical, but my first impression is good.
Dr Lee is wonderful, personable, warm with wonderful bedside manner. You can't find a better doctor. I am so glad I found her.
Dr. Lee was great, and I was in and out of the office in under an hour. The office building is the only less than great thing about the experience, but that being said, the location is convenient and I would definitely recommend her!
She was great! She was thorough, listened and addressed all of my concerns.
Friendly, efficient, modern doctor. Highly recommend!
Dr. Amy is very professional
It was my first visit and I had to fill out the normal new patient paperwork, that's the only reason my wait wasn't right away. I went to Dr. Lee because of the great reviews on this site and I was not disappointed. It's been tough for me (girl in her late twenties) to find a down to earth, easy going doctor that doesn't seem outdated or stuck in their old ways. Dr. Lee is badass. Cool, hip and straight to the point. I felt she listened very well, has a great sense of humor and the appointment was painless (mentally and physically!) :) The nurses at the office were great too. Total five star establishment.
Appointment felt extremely rushed. Doctor seemed very busy but competent. Her staff was the opposite: incompetent and needed several calls to follow up about test results and prescriptions.
Dr. Lee is fantastic! Her concern for one's health and welfare is incredible! I appreciate the thoroughness of care she always provides. I highly recommend Dr. Lee to all my friends and associates.
Good, straight to the point, she was very nice & concern
She was great! She patiently listened to me, and ask me questions that were relevant. I felt she really took my concerns seriously, and will try to find ways to help me be in better health.
Dr. Lee is a pleasure to see. Intelligent, warm, friendly, listens well and shows genuine concern for her patients.
Dr. Lee seems to be a good doctor. But, it is hit or miss when dealing with the staff. Some are nice, polite and professional. Others have made me feel like I was bothering them when I try to make an appointment and even during my appointment. I can't recommend this doctor unless there is a dramatic improvement in the way that the staff deals with patients.
Great bedside manner and I felt confident that she knew what she was talking about.
She was knowledgeable, nice, friendly, and down to earth. Will most likely return.
Doctor Lee, was excellent, she looks a bit young, which of course can be a little disencouraging, but she is very friendly and confroting, I found her to be very anymated, she is great. However, staff was a little rude. Some nurses were very kind and most of the older staff at the desk are a little rude. It was a little unconfortable with them.
Very good experience, the staff was very courteous and professional, and Dr. Lee was very friendly and comforting with her knowledge and Doctor's advice. Highly recommmended!
I loved Dr. Lee. So sad that she's no longer seeing patients.
Very friendly and straightforward. My consultation with her was extremely helpful.
She was very friendly and time efficient.
I'm lucky to have dr.lee as my primary care physician. Shes been Perfect!
She listens and is so smart....Very comfortable in her care.
I just moved in town and was searching for a primary care doctor via doc search webs, when I read some very positive and enthusiastic online comments on Dr. Lee left by her own patients. During our meeting she was extremely knowledgeable, cordial, and straight-forward in her suggestions. I especially appreciated her strong promotion of "natural diet" to a better health, which was pretty refreshing in the present context of prescription-laden medical community.
Never seemed like she cared enough to find out the problem. Never heard back on test results.
She's very friendly and knowledgeable.
She is awesome!!!!!!
I recommend Dr. lee great atmosphere and very professional.
Dr. Lee was fantastic. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I am looking forward to continuing my relationship with her. As far as the hour wait, that was partly my fault as I forgot my insurance card and they had to call and confirm for me.
Dr Lee has such a positive attitude, she actually smiles at her patients. (she also listens)
Very happy with the help I got. Thank you.
I wish I was still in LA because I love Dr. Lee!
She is clear and straight forward.
Dr Lee listens, is kind, caring and is sure to change my diabetic life in a positive direction. Like that she is using technology for her practice. Very Impressed.
Doctor Lee is by far the the best doctor I have had in a l-o-n-g time. She knew what she was doing and did a great job. Also we used this site named ZocDoc and we thought it was to good to be true, anyways thank you Doctor Lee. 5 stars
she was very helpful seem like she really cares for about me and my health compare from other doctor like rush you though and said next, and another one come though and say next, she was NOT like that at all
Dr. Lee was very thorough, I felt like she really listened to what I was saying. I love the focus on nutrition and overall active health. I've already recommended her to several people since my appointment this morning.
My first visit to Dr. Lee was pleasant. She moves fast (by nature, I'm sure...lol) but she was thorough about my condition and what the next plan should be to acquire perfect health. She presents herself to be knowledgeable and serious about her profession. I felt comfortable asking questions ,and, I look forward to having a lasting doctor/patient relationship with Dr.Lee.
she treats all patients as if you are a celebrity and require vip treatment i really love this doctor.
This was my 3rd visit to Dr. Lee. She's great. Very friendly and easy-going.
First time with Doctor Lee. I enjoyed her friendly, professional manner. She was extremely thorough in gaining all pertinant health history and conducting the examination. She informed me of her findings in a manner that was easy to understand. I would highly recommend Dr. Lee!
Doctor Lee was very caring, professional and did not rush, Great experience!
Amy is awesome! Made me feel very confortable. Makes going to the Dr. very easy and pleasent. Greg
Dr. Lee was great! She saw me right away. She was warm, friendly and funny. She answered all of my questions and made sure I got what I needed without any excess treatments.
I would recommend Dr. Amy Lee to any of my family, friends or colleagues. This was my first visit and I was able to get in the same afternoon that I booked my appointment. She is a great General Practitioner for anyone in the LA area. She was extremely knowledgeable, resourceful, and had excellent bedside manner. She spent her time thoroughly reviewing every possibility and answering all my questions. She also followed up with the appropriate referrals. I confidently walked out of her office, knowing I am in good hands. I will recommend her to anyone looking for a doctor.
She is very charming and very accomodating . You would not hesitate telling more of yourself. She is a good doctor
She was great. Very friendly, knowledgable, easy to talk to and no nonsense. She answered all my questions and I was in and out in no time. Unfortunately, I had to go back because I needed blood drawn & her in-office staff was not working on Saturday. She sent me to an outside lab but they require a separate registration & insurance verification that only is available until 11 am on Saturdays & my appointment with Dr. Lee was at 2 PM.
very personable, caring professional. Answered all my questions.
Went for general practitioner related physical but she also covered many other basis for blood work, lady checkups, and dermatology. Saturday clinic hours are super convenient!!
The most efficient Doctor I have ever meant. She personally called me to alert me that my appointment needed to be pusehed back and emailed me as well!!!! I am floored!
Doctor Lee was so amazing she is so understanding and caring all she wanted to do was help me !! I really am so thankful i meet her she is going to change my life ..Thanks Doctor LEE :))))
Doctor Amy "Tsz" Lee, was the most sympathetic, compassionate, knowledgeable doctor I've ever had. Clearly and thoroughly explained all of my options, along with the advantages and disadvantages of each. Gave me a sense of ownership of my medical process rather than forcing me into something I may not be comfortable with as many of my doctors have done in the past. Put me at ease immediately; felt like I was simply having a discussion with a friend to the best solution to some distressing medical issues. Quick witted with a very unique sense of humor I found very refreshing. Scheduled my follow up and am very comfortable with the thought of returning, for once! Thanks Doc Lee, and thank you ZocDocs!
Dr. Lee is incredible. She is kind, caring, a great listener and fantastic doctor. I couldn't have felt more comfortable.
