I would highly recommend Dr. Lee. My wife had a sore throat for days. And Dr. Lee took almost no time to diagnose that its sinus infection. He is very fast, effective and straight to the point. I am very satisfied and will visit again.

Very rushy and impolite. Does not listen to the patient explanations, makes assumptions and judges. I scheduled the appointment due to an ear pain and I barely could explain what I was feeling. Had a few lumps behind my ear whichhe did not even look at. Dr Lee kept repeating that I should not use q-tips (which I don’t!). He stuck something on my ears and cleaned them without even telling me what he was doing. I left the office with even more pain than I was before visiting the doctor (due to his aggressive movements with the instruments inside my ears). At the end of the appointment that lasted less than 5 minutes he told me to return in 4 weeks. When o asked if I needed any prescription I had to hear him ironically saying: no, your years are fine! if I did not have any problems, why should I return in 4 weeks? Leaving the office Dr Lee and his staff asked me to give him a 5 star on Zoc Doc. I have no plans to visit Dr Lee again and do not recommend him!

He wasn't personable. He called me in by saying excuse me 5 times and waving at me from across the room. He won't call me in by name. Mrs. Xxxxx is how you are suppose to address someone. He was rushingme out from the second I sat in the room. Then he jammed a camera down my nose and didn't prepare me for what would happen next which was it would trigger a sneeze. I had to as him for tissue after everything got over my hand. He should have supplied me with tissue from the beginning. Just awful. More interested in my money than me

Appointment was very rushed. I feel as if I was asking to many questions. I wanted to learn more about why things were happening with me but was rushed out of the room. Need to slow down appointments and take thetime to explain things rather than fly through them. Never seen so many patients walk back for 1 min (literally) and come back out done.

Dr Lee was super fast and really seemed to know what he was talking about. A little on the pricey side due to, in my opinon, the fact that he has a lot of newer technology that is used.

The location was easy to find. Very small office with friendly staff. The waiting room felt like an assembly line. He throws open the door and yells your first name. He is very rushed to get through patients. He speaks veryfast and you have to tell him to slow down. I made sure to ask all the questions I needed to but I could tell he was annoyed. I won't be going to my follow up appointment, looking for someone that isn't looking for patient turnover $$. Tip: Don't let him talk you into any extra stuff bc it's never covered insurance and cost a lot.

Poor bedside manner, brusque and dismissive. Did not warn me of potentially painful nasal scope being pushed down my throat then was unsympathetic when I unexpectedly burst into tears bc of the pain. Argumentative about my medications (whichhe was poorly informed on and was not the prescribing physician for them in the first place). Then told me to just go to Emory sleep medicine and he had no recommendation for a specific doc to see there when I asked. I left feeling blamed for and hopeless about my sleep problems. Thankfully, I got a different recommendation from a friend for a more compassionate sleep doc who is also neurologist and I’m happy to say I’ve got better answers for my sleep disorder now.

When I give details my review gets rejected. So because I can’t seem to say specifically why I don’t recommend this doctor. Suffice it to say that I’ve never been to a doctor who I’d recommend less than this one. Also,please check other review sources for this doctor before you go. Most places have him at a 2 average.
