Verified Patient Reviews
Very good doctor. Takes the time to listen and explain whats going on.
Dr. Lee was extremely rude, and he was very rough with my child who i brought in for hearing trouble and ear pain. Instead of trying to calm the child to make him less afraid and more agreeable, Dr. Lee instead just kept forceful pushing his head around. The entire visit was very rude, and very rushed. He seems to focus on speed and less on retention of patients. His staff prompts you to rate them 5 stars while you're checking out which is likely why there are so many 5 star reviews without any comment on the service. I ignored the negative review that i saw, but i hope my experience stops others from making the same mistake.
Dr. Christopher definitely knows what he is taking about. He explained everything very well. I feel confident and trust what he recommended we should do.
I found Dr. Lee on a net search and was able to get an appointment the same day. The wait time was short and he was seeing me in minutes. I have never had a dr appointment that moved along so swiftly, He completed his exam while I saw everything he saw on a screen. I am very pleased and will continue to use his services as needed.

Was seen super fast. My child was fussy and he was very patient and was good about making him laugh. He answered my questions as well.
Dr. Lee was easily the most personable doctor I have ever encountered in my life. He was so easy to talk to, and he explained everything to me to make sure that I understood what was going on before he did anything. He also has super cool technology that allows you to see your insides just the same way he does in real-time. I wish he was a GP 10/10!
Professional, caring, wanted to explain and show the issues to me. The staff was friendly and I was in right on time. Excellent experience!!!!!!
Dr. Lee was very brusque and impatient. When we had a question, he talked to us condescendingly, and often cut us off whenever we talked. His explanations were short and abrupt, and was not gentle in his probing and examination. When we left, the secretary told each patient to rate them 5 stars on ZocDoc.
Professional and personable. An enjoyable experience.
Doctor was very professional and very kind! I would definitely recommend
Dr. Lee is very professional and knowledgeable. He solved my problem and offered excellent recommendations. His office staff is courteous and efficient. Wait time is very short or not at all. Appointments are available with a few days at most. Highly recommend.

Prompt, informative, explained diagnosis completely and in an easy to understand manner. Ken B 11/12/15
It was a pleasurable visit and Doctor Lee made me feel very comfortable. He quickly put my mind at ease by examining my ears and throat and putting me in for a hearing test. when i left the office, there was no doubt in my mind that finally someone got the diagnosis correct.
Dr. Lee is direct, informative, thorough, and operates a highly professional practice with a courteous and proficient staff.
He is fast! I liked he is right to the point but does a complete exam. Has excellent technology that allows you to see what is happening in your ears, your nose, your throat right there in front of you. I like that.
Dr. Lee was very knowledgeable and professional. His office staff was friendly and efficient. Would highly recommend.
I had a good experience in Dr. Let's office. Staffs were nice and quick. Dr. Lee explained things clearly before and after the examinations.
Awesome dr and staff!!!
Very satisfied with doctor's professional expertise.
The staff ladies were very friendly and I waited no time to see the doctor right after I filled out the new patient form.
Dr. Lee is very thorough, knowledgeable and covers every detail of your concern and/or issue. I'm new to the area and Googled an Eye, Ear, Nose specialist and he came up. Booked my appointment online that Sunday and saw him the next day. Couple that with a great staff and you've got one of the best practices I've ever been to. Pretty impressive!
He'a very professional. Explain very well.
He was awesome and treated me excellent. I didn't even have to wait more than 10 mins and there was 5 people ahead of me when I came in , attended me nice and calm.
The front desk staff was helpful, friendly and efficient. Dr. Lee was a great listener, thorough, yet quick. Great first appointment. Looking forward to good follow up appointment.
The office visit was very efficient and information. There was virtually no wait time once I checked in. Dr. Lee quickly diagnosis my post nasal drip condition using a scope camera. He also used diagrams to explain what was actually occurring with my sinuses. He was able to quickly rule out infection. I have a follow up visit in less than 3 weeks, and I already feeling progressive after several days in the prescribed meds.
I was seen quickly after my arrival and Dr. Lee was both pleasant and informative. I would highly recommend him for others.
Dr. Lee was so amazing. I set up my appointment on 7/15 for 7/16. I was a couple minutes late because I lost track of time working. I arrived, checked in, and was seen within 5 minutes. Dr. Lee was thorough and his technology was amazing. I was able to see everything he was doing. I set up an appointment with him to have a second opinion (I don't trust many people these days...even Drs.) and now he will be my FIRST choice whenever I need an ENT.
It was a very good experience, he explained what he will do, the anticipated discomfort and why. I will recommend the doctor
Great visit, quick and professional!
Very professional, knowledgable, and thorough.
High energy doctor with knowledge and confidence to provide both explanation and peace of mind for his patients. Front desk staff was very professional, polite, and accurate. I just hope I'll get better after taking these prescription meds.

A good experience
My first visit -- Dr. Lee was very prompt with my appointment and when the appointment was concluded I knew that I had made the proper decision in choosing Dr. Lee
Knowledgeable, and professional
He was great very informative!!!
He was very knowledgeable and informative
He was a very pleasant dr. He greeted me and answered all my concerns.I didn't have to wait long at all , which was a huge plus for me .I will definitely use him again.
I still have 3 weeks before follow up appointment to see if the care I received is going to work. But I very much appreciated a prompt appointment - no waiting, the ability to schedule an appointment online, the up to date equipment. I liked that I received an explanation of my malady, and the steps taken to resolve it. It's a different policy than I've seen, but getting a picture taken and paying for visit prior to seeing the Dr. was a little disconcerting. He is convenient, and brooks no wasted breath - but I appreciate that.
The staff is friendly and accommodating. Dr. Lee is a professional and very knowledgeable.
Dr. Lee is super efficient, and the use of diagnosis images helped a lot to visualize my problem.
DR LEE WAS FUN AND VERY NICE. HE WAS VERY QUICK BUT DESPITE OTHER REVIEWS I DIDNT NECESSARILY FEEL "RUSHED" HE JUST MOVED VERY FAST THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS.
I never have to wait of 5 to 10 mins. His staff will always work me in if I need to go no the same day.
Dr. Lee brought optimism back to my life! I admire his personality and respect his knowledge. Even though this was my first visit, he had a certain confidence that put me at ease, so I give him nothing but accolades!
I like how fast and efficient he is when I visit him. He has answered every question for me and explains the reasoning.
Great vist, staff very friendly. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Lee.
The doctor was great wih my son and i appreciate the fact that hes very kid freindly.
Dr. Lee and the office staff were wonderful. I was a bit anxious about the procedure I needed but Dr. Lee was very kind and put my mind at ease. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Lee's bedside manner was exceptional. He made me feel very comfortable and my procedures were done with little to no discomfort. I highly recommend him!!!
I loved the office. It was very cozy, intimate yet classy.
Great doctor, very thorough. Everyone, including the doctor, worked at a very fast pace. But, I didn't feel like the service was lacking in any way as a result of the pace. Very kind and helpful staff.
Very friendly and professional staff.
As always Dr. Lee always takes the time to answer any questions that I have and he never makes me feel as though he doesn't have time to do so. He is extremely professional but personable which so something that is missing today in the medical field, a doctor that acts like he cares! Thank you Dr. Lee and staff!
The doctor was very nice and thorough. The office manager was amazing and worked very hard to schedule my surgery as well as process my paperwork for the hospital the day of my appointment. The office staff were very kind also. I am impressed!
Wow. I don't think I have ever had an appointment that went so efficiently. Dr. Lee listened to my symptoms - typing furiously the entire time to be sure to document everything - offered some insights and then showed me the evidence justifying his prognosis. We have a game plan I am satisfied with and I am greatly encouraged we can solve my sleep apnea problems once and for all.
i love coming to see dr lee. he is very nice and he explained to me every thing that was going on in my sinuses. i love that he cleans out the wax out of my ears on each visit :) i would highly recommend him to others.
Dr Lee is the Best!!!!!
It was a little bit like he was in a hurry...but it was perfect for me as I could get back to my office within an hour and he answered all my questions! I would definitely recommend him for his specialty! Let me also add that the staff was also particularly sweet!
As a health care professional, I appreciated the efficiency of Dr. Lee's office staff. Dr. Lee was totally professional, friendly, engaging and fast. I was in and out in less than 30 minutes with a quick fix and a great result.
The best doctor's office ever. I got there at 4:15pm and left by 4:40pm. My kids were able to sit with me and watch the whole procedure of having my ears checked and cleaned. The receptionists were very kind to me and my kids. I will definitely be going back to Dr Lee and will highly recommend him to all my friends and family members.
Visit was excellent. Doctor answered all my questions and concern.
Dr. Lee's treatment was quick and precise. I was very satisfied with the care that I received. I could understand why some people might have felt that he wasn't spending enough time with each of his patient because his actions seem a bit impetuous, but I believe he still gave me enough information and after all I wasn't at his office to have a tea time. I would recommend him to my friends.
I think that my consult appointment went very quickly. I thought that we would have discussed my options for longer than 5 minutes. I am okay because I work in health care, so I understand that providers do not always have time to go into depth. I did not feel a warm fuzzy feeling, but everyone was professional at the front desk. I am considering having my services rendered with Dr. Lee.
I will definitely visit Dr. Lee again. He is highly skilled and quite kind. He is my new ENT!
He is awesome
He was very fast and yet covering every thing.
He was very nice and fast getting straight to the point. It's always nice to find a good doctor.
I think Dr. Lee provides concierge service without the concierge fee! REALLY! He is the most compassionate, calm, kind, and extremely competent doctor I have met. Plus the medical outcomes were exactly what I wanted them to be - (1) diagnoses, (2) treatment plan, (3) implementation of treatment plan, (4) effectiveness of treatment, and (5) planned follow-up. This all happened within 30 minutes and with a smile. I could not have asked for more! This is the BEST medical experience I have had!!! Thank you, Dr. Lee!!!!
My visit was nothing less than Amazing!!!!!!
My visit was nothing short of excellent. I made an appointment around 3:00 am using the ZocDoc app because I was having trouble sleeping due to my right ear being sore and clogged with wax for the past few weeks. I've always heard the using Q-tips in the ear is a no-no, but I was desperately trying to get some relief from my clogged up ear so I broke this rule with no relief at all; if anything I think I made it worse. When I arrived at the office today, the receptionists were nice and professional took my insurance info and immediately got me into their system. I waited less than 5 minutes before being seen by Dr Lee. He was very friendly and attentive to my issue. I told him the issues I was having with my ear and he immediately took a look at my nose and ear using a camera scope. I was able to see everything he saw and I immediately saw how bad my wax build up was in my ear. He explained everything I was seeing and was able to clear out my right ear. He then looked at my left ear as well which to my surprise was also blocked up bad which he cleaned as well. He also saw some infection in my ear canal and prescribed me some antibiotics to clear it up, as well as a nasal spray to help me with my nose breathing due to my septum being misaligned. During the appointment, Dr. Lee told me that using Q-tips to try to clean the ear is not a good idea and could be very dangerous. After seeing first hand how close my ear drum was to the opening of my ear, I am thankful I didn't cause any damage when I was poking around in there these past couple of days. From now on, I'll let him do it. I am very thankful for Dr Lee, and glad I didn't have to go one more day feeling like I was underwater and was prescribed some medication to help with my infection. I can finally hear clearly again!!
The receptionists were very friendly and I was beyond pleased with Dr. Lee. I have had ear issues my entire life, and he made me feel comfortable the entire time. His room had up to date technology that showed me what he was doing as he did it and I found that to be really interesting. He also seemed incredibly versed in his practice and was able to answer any question/doubt that I had.
Amazing staff,everybody was very friendly, Dr Lee knew right away what my problem is and able to help right away,I will recommend him to family and friends!
Awesome! Minimal wait and exceptional bedside manners. He listened to my concerns and walked me through everything he was doing before he did it. Followed up at the end to ensure I had no questions and was comfortable with everything that we discussed. I walked out feeling as though I had a plan and with confidence about my diagnosis!
Dr. Lee is the first doctor I've seen who does not prescribe medication to mask the symptoms, like painkillers for pain. He if more focused in treating the cause of the problem.
Dr Lee and staff have an A+ for service, attention to the patient, explanation of the medical condition and ability to handle patient's issues.
He was great ??????
It is my sincere hope that this review will help someone from making the same mistake I made. From the moment I walked into his office I felt rushed. It's like he wanted to get to the next patient and didn't have the courtesy to even slow down. His demeanor was utterly unprofessional; I asked him a novice question about my condition and he brushed me off saying that you are thinking way ahead. My wife asked him a question and he impolitely stopped her saying "LISEN TO ME...". After that we were completely discouraged to ask him any further questions. Keep in mind that were talking about my potential surgery!! His 'sense of rushing' and lack of interest to answer our simple questions really saddened us. The worst part was his bedside manner; at one point as I was asking him something he held my hand and strongly pushed it down so as to examine me. On top of that, instead of asking me to lean back, he took a tissue in his hand and forcefully pushed to it back! This is Manner class 101! I can't understand how he's getting away with all of this! Frankly, I didn't see any genuine interest on his part to help me. He was more interested in quickly getting over with my case so as to jump to the next patient. Folks, please don't waste your money going to this guy; there are better Doctors out there. I went to this guy after seeing his 5 star rating, but now I seriously suspect the validity of these ratings. Folks, please don't make the same mistake I made. There are better doctors out there.
very very professional and caring!!

It was extremely easy to get the appointment online. The office staff followed up quickly and courteously to confirm the appointment and were very friendly and efficient on our arrival. Dr. Lee was excellent. He asked us about the problem, showed and described to us was the source of the problem was and how he proposed to fix and then fixed it quickly and explained what we need to do next.
Doctor Lee was fast, informative and extremely professional.
The visit was really quick. Hopefully the medication works and the infection goes away soon.
Best Doctor that I have seen in a while. Knew what he was talking about and answered all the questions I had. Would recommend to anyone!! Was seen within 10 min of arrival time ( which never happens with other doctors) . 100% worth the 40min drive A+++
He was very friendly and made me Comfortable from the moment I met him. The wait was very short compared to some of the other doctor's I have been to. I would certainly recommend him to anyone.
It was excellent. I wish I had known about him sooner....
Very nice office personnel. Due to road construction they had to direct me to the office. It took 2 calls and they were just great. J Kohli
Straight to the point. I definitely recommend Dr. Lee. I am changing my ENT as of today. Thank you doc for giving me more assurance than I've had in two years.
He is very bright and well versed in his field. Speaks very fast, but, didn't offend me. I chose him because of his education, as I felt he would be a good diagnostician, and he was. I like coming away from a doctors visit with answers.
He is very kind and pay attention to your needs.

My visit was very quick but thorough. My wait time was about 10 minutes. Dr. Lee is very knowledgeable and was able to pin point the problem quickly and provide the needed treatment. This was my first time to his office but I will definitely be back for future check ups and ENT issues.
Awesome experience. Doctor Lee is very friendly and the staff is very helpful. Lee has excellent insight in finding the issue and his way of explanation with the right equipment is wonderful. I would recommend him to all my friends.
This was my first visit, but certainly not my last. Dr. Lee was great and his staff was outstanding! Definitely recommended!
I went for a simple consultation. However, the doctor decided to clean my ears, which would have been fine. But here's a catch: it is considered as an operation (!!!) by insurance providers, so I was refused the coverage. Solution which I expected the doctor to suggest: book an appointment next day (whatever day) to make those "operations". So, simple visit and cleaning ears cost me $$$ (due to ZocDoc policy on reviews I cannot say how much, but believe me, highly overpriced than I ever had before for the same stuff). I consider that taking advantage of me. Not to tell that the doctor touched my knees unnecessarily, which I hope was just cultural thing. He is Ear, Nose & Throat Doctor after all, not supposed to touch anything besides...
Very nice and professional.
I was very impressed with Dr Lee's professional approach and ability to quickly diagnose my situation. Bonnie, his chief of staff was spot on and helpful.
The doctor and staff was amazing, I would recommend him to family and friends..T.Woods
He was great, my daughter who is 4 yrs old love him.

Dr. Lee and his staff were very professional. He was thorough and informative.
Great and very informative
I had an awesome experience with Christopher Lee, MD. The staff was very welcoming and very friendly. The visit got even better when Dr. Lee opened the door that lead to his ofice. He welcomed me with a smile and warm hello. I was a little nervous about my visit but he proved me wrong. I would recommend him to any an all my friends and family.
Professional, courteous, able to quickly and accurately diagnose problem, offered valuable advice for future situations.
Dr. Lee is personable and efficient. He is in a hurry but even the hurry feels thorough.
Dr. Lee was excellent with my 9 month old and I highly recommend him for the whole family.
Dr. Lee was incredibly friendly and informative. It was my first visit with him and will definitely return. It's very comforting to have confidence in your doctor, and Dr. Lee instills that right away
Dr Lee was attentive and thorough. I only waited 10 mins. Office staff was friendly too. Overall I'd give my experience a 10.
My visit was amazing! I was serviced right away, the staff was very helpful and Dr. Lee made me feel comfortable while educating me on my condition. The entire team was friendly. I am glad I chose him for my appointment.
This was easily the single best medical office visit of my life. Prompt greeting, virtually no waiting,focused attention to my issue,clear explanation - including using a scope to show me (on a monitor) the source of my problem, no feeling of being rushed, clear follow-up plan . . . . Truly, I can't imagine what they could've done better!
Dr. Lee was excellent. He addressed my concerns and seemed to know what my fears were without me expressing them. Very approachable and was a great source of enterntainment for my three (yes, I had to bring all three) kids. Definitely would recommend him.
Excellent! Very efficient and courteous. He cleaned my ears and showed me by camera the progress made.
When I was called back for my turn I mentioned I need too visit the restroom and he said no. ???? He would cut me off when I spoke, etc etc. He was in such a hurry too get me out I question his judgment. Typical Arrogant Doctor.
He is an excellent doctor. I got to see on the monitor how bad the ear wax build up was and got to watch him take the ear wax out. He was very nice and friendly so is his staff.
So far so good
Dr. Lee is a great doctor. My 7-yr-old son was not scared at all because Dr. Lee knew how to make it fun. Thank you.
Dr. Lee is really nice doctor, no waiting at all and the office excellent clean and employees was gently. I really recommend him.
accurate and fast.
After being misdiagnosed a week prior at a different general physician's office, I was in extreme pain with a bad ear infection when I showed up for my first appointment. The office is clean and the environment friendly. Dr. Lee not only made me comfortable during the visit, but he also took the time to listen to my questions and explained things in a way that really sticks with you. He actually made me smile through the pain a few times on the first visit, and I left with a smile on my face because I knew I was on track to finally getting better. When I came for a follow up visit a week later, I felt SO much better and was smiling the whole time. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Lee and his friendly staff for making what was the worst ear infection of my life that much easier to get through.
Great educational experience this visit always pleasant & see you soon Doc !
Very short wait time and a very competent doctor.
My visit was amazing! Probably the best doctor visit I have experienced.
Dr. Lee was very professional and extremely kind. My health issues were minor (Thank God) He put my mind at ease without making me feel stupid, gentle while sticking a camera in my nose and throat...Didin't hurt...Most Doctors just cram it down your nose and tell you to hold on...I will be back and reccomend him to others.
hes amazing, every time i see him he always makes me feel like i was worrying about nothing lol i feel better every time
Best experience visiting a doctors office ever cant waite to go back in two weeks i had a fear of ent specialist but not anymore .
He was very professional, showed me on the screen what was wrong with my ear, explained everything clearly, has a great attitude and I felt confident in his assessment. He is a very nice man who has a very friendly office staff.
The staff was really nice, and helped me immediately. Then I saw the doctor right after there was no long wait. Overall I had a great experience!
Very professional and made our 4 year old laugh all at the same time. Makes medical issues easy to understand.
Over all I was very impress with the professional service that Dr.Lee gave me.I would highly recommend Dr.Lee to all. Sincerely, Voi Van To.
Dr. Lee was very friendly and professional. He diagnosed me immediately and set me on a treatment regiment. I finally feel that my suffering days are coming to an end! Thanks for the great referral ZocDoc!
