Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Lee was great ! I will know more as I get to know him . First visit went well , got some shots to help the pain . He was very good with doing that for sure !
Very nice, knows his stuff, and answered my questions. Perfect combo.
My wife and I have both used Dr. Byung Lee for issues with our hands wrists. We are impressed with his professionalism and helpfulness in our treatment. I especially appreciate him taking the time to explain the physiology and issues in terms we can understand. Coming from an engineering background, this is very important to me.
Enjoyable and informative.
Short but sweet. Got right in to see Dr. Lee. He had x-rays taken before he saw me and made his assessment. He gave me a clear course of action and asked if I had anything that I didn't understand. Dr. Lee is very thorough and is very likeable.
He is an excellent doctor and i would highly recommend him. Very thorough and explains everything.
fast efficient service. surgical procedures and expected out comes are well explained before and after surgery.
First time and he was likeable, friendly and knowledgeable
Dr Lee has performed multiple surgeries and I would highly recommend to anyone who needs hands & elbow nerve surgery. I love how he explains it to me & my husband. Dr. Lee I will continue to use and I highly recommend.
I am a 62 year old woman who stepped in a whole in her yard and broke her leg in a weird way and almost had to have surgery. Dr. Lee performed his miracle and I was able to avoid surgery. He has been treating me for 3 months and Dr. Lee has made an unbearable experience much more tolerable. He and his staff are professionals, but they care about your recovery, much like a family member would care. I have been extremely pleased with the care that I have received and I would recommend Dr. Lee and his staff to my loved ones.
Dr Lee is top-notch in every way!
Highly professional and knowledgeable Doctor. Uses conservatism in his medical approach. I highly recommend Dr. Lee for anyone! Great bedside manner, extremely personable, great personality and well-suited for the work he does.
His care & concern is wonderful. He takes time to fully explain what & why his treatment is as well as why.
Dr, Lee was very attentive to my medical issue and was concerned to get the issue resolved. I highly recommend Dr. Lee for his professionalism and bedside manner. I will recommend Dr. Lee to others.
Patient and understanding. Explains things so you are able to understand. Takes time with you and doesn't make you feel like he is rushed to get to the next patient.
I sat in the waiting room after filling out the remaining paperwork (the Zocdoc files didn't transfer, I think) for maybe 5 minutes and called back to check my weight. I was x-rayed and saw Dr. Lee within 8 minutes! I also made this appointment the day prior (on a Sunday even)!
The doc was not too sure.. He was going by the book and couldnt apply practically... My Xrays didnt come out the way he would have expected and i still have the issue which i am living with..
I like Dr., Lee, he is very nice and he knows what he is doing.
Dr. Lee and his staff are great. They take care of both my wife and I. Very personable, great listener , and very good at diagnosing and helping with the problems we had. Great guy.
Dr. Lee is friendly and outgoing. He has never talked down to me or treated me with anything but respect. My wife and I had a number of questions about a possible surgery. He listened and gave detailed answers without looking at his watch. In the end we established a treatment protocol for an indefinite period instead of surgery
Dr. Lee saw both my wife and I today. We both had issues . He listened and explained very well. Easy to talk to and we both felt very good about the plan for each of us going forward.
I had my second post-surgery followup visit with Dr. Lee today, it was an excellent visit. He was professional, personable and immediately on top of a couple of new concerns that had arisen since my last visit.
Clearly explained what my problem was and what his treatment plan would entail. Very comfortable with his plan.
Great doctor! Made sure I understood everything before I left. Friendly and made it easy.
Dr. Lee did surgery on my wrist after a fall caused a compound fracture. He was excellent in every regard. He prepared me well for the surgery, educating me on the procedure and patiently and professionally answering every question that I had. The surgical experience itself was top notch. I had virtually no post-surgical pain and the follow up care from Dr. Lee and his staff was outstanding. I highly recommend Dr. Lee on every level: medical expertise; surgical expertise; professionalism; approachability; and patient care and concern.
Dr. Lee is always so professional and so well-informed. He checked for pain in my wrist, but suggested that if that one screw in the wrist were to continue moving as x-rays showed, he could go back in and remove that screw/even the plate. But I don't want to do that - no pain now, but he told me to call him if pain comes along later. I loved the fact that Dr. Lee agreed with my theory of "mind over matter" - positive thinking works for healing. Dr. Lee could have been a philosophy major like me!! Love him!
Dr. Lee is the most kind and caring Doctor I have had in 60 years of seeing doctors. He cares about his patients. He's prompt about seeing you in the hospital and in his office. I highly recommend him! Thank you Dr. Lee for such excellent care.
Absolutely excellent. Listens, addresses concerns, gives answers, very professional, and even shook my hand!!
He listens and explains. I did not feel rushed. I understood his rationale behind my treatment plan and confident of the best possible outcome.
Dr. Lee was very thorough in his explanations about my medical issues. He had a gentle bedside manner when dealing with me as a patient. I am very impressed with him and am very happy I chose him to be my doctor.
He's amazing. Had a great experience with the doctor amd his team. Very much recommend him.
Dr. Lee is very knowledgable and will answer any questions you might have about your surgery in terms you can understand.
He came to treat me in ER on Saturday even though he wasn't on duty and did a shoulder repositioning. That was wonderful proactive action. Excellent bedside explanation of the procedure. He also had a great team.
Dr. Lee is professional yet so personable and caring. He interacted well with me and my 2 granddaughters, 11 and 12, I happened to take with me. He wasted no time getting X-ray's and diagnosis, alleviating another trip to the office. He answered all of my questions, making sure I understood everything.
He is the best.
Since this was the first time at this office, we were unsure what to expect. However, the whole experience from check-in to check-out was great. everyone was helpful, professional and pleasant. Thank you to all.
I am so grateful for Dr. Lee's expertise. I saw the x-ray of my arm today. He did an amazing job of piecing me back together after a nasty fall on brick. My shoulder and humerus were broken and I have amazing mobility considering the extent of my injuries. Thank you Dr. Lee and your team of surgeons for your skilled work.
Very professional and knowledgable I will use his service again.

I went to Dr.Lee for a second opinion, becauce my gut told me the one I was currently seeing was off. Turns out I had an infection requirng immediate surgery and a stay in the hospital with intervenous medication. Dr. Lee had me in surgery with in hours. His bed side manor in hospital was great. I am so glad I got that second opinion & I will tell anyone who needs an orthopedic doc to go to him.
He was an hour late and he interrupted a lot
He answerd all my questions.
He basically called me stupid when I saw him. Yea it's "common sense" not to talk down to a patient. Didn't really care about my issues and was way less informative than the Internet. He didn't explain or go in depth about my issues. Yes I know I have boxers injury. It's the whole reason I'm there. I've injured my hands through rough contact. Personally I'll find someone else. This guy is not for me. Initially I booked another doctor and was pushed to see Lee. I liked the reviews of the initial doc I attempted to see.
Dr. Lee is such a great doctor. He took wonderful care of Peggy.
Dr. Lee listens to me, rare in a Doctor. I very seldom even get to sit down in the waiting after check in and then Dr. Lee comes in the exam room within minutes. I've honestly never have had this kind of service with any other Doctor. I greatly appreciate his professionalism.
He was very tentative and explained my situation thoroughly.
My visit was very good. I was seen super fast and each process is explained well. The staff there is great, friendly, and very helpful. They were happy to answer all my questions and they made me feel very welcome each time I've visited. I would definitely recommend Dr. Lee!
EVERYONE was courteous and very helpful. My visit was quick and pleasant. Wonderful staff and very nice doctor with a great sense of humor!
I was impressed with everything about him. He was very thorough and knowledgeable. I give him a 10!
Dr. Lee was the third orthopedist i interviewed for my son's surgery. My son had a fractured scaphoid. Dr. Lee performed his surgery and we are thrilled with the outcome. I could not have put my child in more capable hands than his!
Professional, highly knowledgeable, concise, but empathetic. Provided options and recommendations.
Was very pleased with Lee
He was so awesome!!! He was very thorough in making me understand what the problem was. Gave me great treatment options. He performed a procedure on me and was very knowledgeable.
Dr. Lee is a very kind and caring doctor. His staff is very polite and friendly. I highly recommend him for wrist injuries. I have never had to wait long at any of my appointments. He has a great personality as well!
I'm grateful for all my recommendations. I wouldn't want a different Dr. Thanks Dr. BJ.

He addressed my issue immediately and gave me information and options that I was not aware of. Thank you

Dr Lee likes to cover everything even the injuries that must do not catch. He is concerned for his patient's overall recovery and health.
He is good, I was worried about getting the treatment, but he made it painless , yes he did!
I was impressed with Dr.Lee's courtesy and knowledge. I do wish I had been able to have MRI today, since I'm in so much pain. Most severe pain is in my shoulder, and I must wait until next week to have MRI.

Dr Lee is a fantastic doctor with great bedside manner. He is very personable & definitely relates to my needs as a patient. I am a very active adult and feel 100% confident that he will do everything he can to assure my recovery is a quick as possible without compromising my injury.
Dr. Lee is by far one of the greatest Doctors I have had the privilege of meeting & being a patient of. He listens & sincerely cares about your concerns & will answer every single question you have. His bedside manner is a breath of fresh air. Now a days Dr's want you in & out & have no desire to spend more than 5 mins with you. Dr. Lee is the total opposite & it is extremely comforting. I HIGHLY recommend him & will refer my friends & family to him. His medical assistant Jen is just as wonderful they make a awesome team!!
Very good experience. professional staff, quick appointment and treatment.
Dr. Lee and his Medical Assistant Jennifer were very attentive and professional. Good senses of humor too! Everyone in the back offices were great.
Seemed like he knew what he was doing. Took time to explain my problem & my options. Received immediate treatment & was instructed on how to care for problem.
Great visit. Dr Lee was prompt, thoughtful and attentive.
