I honestly have never been to a specialist who was so thorough. He asked a great deal of questions to try to get to the root of my problem and I was very pleased with how detailed he was. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Lee.

As I said to him, I am not sure why anyone would go anywhere else, excellent bedside manner and so thorough, not sorry I waited 10 days for him to come back from vacation, it was worth it. Thanks.

I think there is a tendency to talk over each other but if I have a question, I persist, when he's confused, he looks annoyed but he never didn't answer. When he says you can go, you feel liberated.

if there are better than he, haven't met them, doesn't panic but also doesn't let things slide and he doesn't allow you to either, which is nice. I do end up debating with him and he is the cardiologist.

I was greeted by a professional and friendly staff as soon as I exited the elevator. I was a first time patient, and they called me back before I could finish my paperwork. Dr. Lee was professional, on time, and veryinformative. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone seeking cardiac care.

Dr. Lee was very professional and thorough. I arrived early for my appointment and, as it happens an earlier patient was late, so he saw me immediately. He took very thorough notes and made sure I understood all the information hegave me regarding tests and future visits. The visit did not feel rushed.

I am sure happy that I went in this location. No long wait! My appointment was at 8am but since I was a new patient,I went there 15 minutes early. I never had to fill-up any forms since I did everythingahead thru ZocDoc. So those 15 minutes were used for checking vitals. So at exactly 8 am, Dr.Lee was already doing his part. He was pleasant to talk with. He said I look young and healthy.I was comfortable in sharing with him my symptoms Staffs are very courteous and friendly. They never made me feel uncomfortable.

I first booked Dr. Lee through ZocDoc due to upper abdominal pain and chest heaviness. He saw me right away, no questions, asked and when I had several scary breathing issues following our initial meeting that landed me in Urgent Care,he had me come in straight away - pushing up previously scheduled stress and echo tests to ensure my heart was in good health. Understanding of my situation (navigating a number of doctor's for a diagnosis), he offered me options in receiving my results and was timely in delivering these. Accommodating, assuring, and empathetic are all words I would use to describe Dr. Lee. In this increasingly non-human world, he is a doctor that sees a patient as a person first. Highly recommended.
