Thank-you for all your help
Dr. Lee was thorough and answered all my questions clearly and completely. I feel confident that I will get great care under his guidance.
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.
