Dr Lee is fantastic! However his staff is not. The office is run poorly. It took them forever to get my referral squared away, and acknowledge that they had my test results. I found the personnel difficult. There was also along wait time even though I was first appointment. Nurse was rushed and didn't really listen. Left in the middle of me answering her question.

He was very nice and friendly and so was the staff. We were there for my sister, who has Alzheimer's and had broken her hip. They treated her with respect and tried to help her understand what they were trying to do.

Dr. Lee is very personable and thorough with his examination. He takes time to explain in detail what is wrong and the steps to improve the problem. It was such a pleasure to find a happy, caring doctor that is opento your questions. In my experience this doctor is one of the best there and I am so glad I went to him for help. I did not have to wait a long time to see him and once in the room, he came in quickly welcoming me and discussing my reason for visiting. What a joy it was to find Dr. Lee.

He explained away every concern I had no matter how small. He took the time to really listen to me and explain where I had a total understanding. Such a blessing for me. Him walking through the ER while I wasthere was a God send. I live in far north Dallas, but I would drive even further if I had to so he would be my surgeon. Surgery went great and looking forward to finishing up therapy.

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.

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.

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! Ialso made this appointment the day prior (on a Sunday even)!

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 lookingat his watch. In the end we established a treatment protocol for an indefinite period instead of surgery

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 Ihad. 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 thatscrew/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!
