Dr. Lee is really a phenomenal primary care doc. He is PROMPT with appointments which is a rare trait and i appreciate it immensely. he’s also very competent, bright, and uses technology in ways that are super helpful and unusual inhealthcare. He is also shockingly available and i’ve been able to schedule appointments within a week both times i’ve needed to. He also was able to quickly and succinctly diagnose and manage a scary health concern with appropriate concern and caring. can’t recommend highly enough.

I haven't seen in a doctor in an extremely long time. I came in to do a regular physical. Dr. Lee was very thorough in asking questions and understanding all the different lifestyle factors before giving any thoughts or advice. Hewas very personable and I liked his holistic feedback across lifestyle and not strictly medical advice.

I really appreciated Dr. Arnold's approach as I wasn't quite sure what exactly was causing my sleep issues. He not only explained and drew out for me what exactly his thoughts were. He then sent me further research and articles throughthe Circle Medical app which were incredibly helpful. My labs were taken right then and there and all staff were incredibly helpful. I look forward to working with Dr. Arnold to continue treatment and seek diagnosis.

I saw Dr. Lee for a routine physical. He checked my vitals in a super quick and efficient manner and he took his time to approach other possible health issues holistically and carefully. I've never had a doctor ask me whatkind of vitamins and supplements I take, and that meant a lot to have my overall health regimen addressed both from the western, practical medicine perspective and from a more holistic approach.

Dr. was very knowledgeable, courteous & fast. Great bedside manner. Only negative thing to mention would be the location isn’t in the nicest part of town.

Probably the best PCP visit I have ever experienced. Dr. Arnold was on time, personable, thoughtful and evaluative in his assessment, and offered multiple treatment options as well as multiple referrals for a consultation with a specialist.I felt like Dr. Arnold's was clear in his objective to collect all necessary information (background history and current symptoms) and determine the best options to provide care. As an adult, going to see a PCP for a disorder that has a lot of stigma around it is an extremely vulnerable experience and you don't expect a physician to treat you with a negative bias however that has been the case for me in the past and so when Dr. Arnold spoke to me with a clear tone of objectivity it made me feel much safer and at ease to disclose sensitive personal information. He also did a very good job of explaining his intent and why he prescribed specific next steps. I would recommend him to any adult in the Bay area who are looking for a new PCP to get started with and who want to feel like their new PCP will take a thoughtful account of their medical history in providing future care.

When I went in for a knee injury, Dr. Lee was very thorough and had me go through my athletic history as well as recent activity that may have triggered it. He did a few tests (walking test, feeling the joint,leg raise, etc.) and then explained his diagnosis and referred me to a specialist when he suspected that the issue should be followed up more closely. He explained everything very well as well as what he believed may be causing it. Overall a great appointment!

Dr. Lee is very professional and very candid in his medical advice. I went to see him for the first time for an annual check up and would highly recommend him. The added bonus of the Circle Medical app makes receiving and sending information to him very simple.

Great overall. My only complaint would be that he asked some questions in a shaming sort of way. For example, rather than "Do you smoke tobacco?" he would say "I assume that you of course don't smoke tobacco"
