I'm so glad Dr. Lee's practice uses ZocDoc since I was able to book an appointment on Thursday night for Friday. All his staff were very nice, and his receptionist called me in the morning to confirm my appointment and tookmy insurance info in advance. Dr. Lee was patient while I described the ear, nose, and throat issues I've had over the last two weeks. He was extremely thorough, used a nasal endoscope to check and confirm everything, and answered my numerous questions without being dismissive or impatient. The best part was that he recommended something I could do at home instead of taking medication. I highly recommend Dr. Lee.

The doctor was very understanding of my situation. He calmly recommended the right treatment and also suggested that i come back for another visit to make sure my recovery is going well. This helps me to feel comfortable that I'm gettingthe right treatment and that my doctor also is concerned and optimistic as i am about my future health!

Dr. Edward Lee has been my preferred ENT practitioner since 2002. Presently, I must go out of network to be treated by Dr. Lee, as I belong to Kaiser Health. I return to DR. Lee when my primary care physician, and specialist at Kaiser are unable to help me sufficiently.

The doctor is nice and Expensive. Usually I will pay at my bill coming from insurance company which will give some discount as my plan is high deductible. But this place collects money at the site, it makes me feel bad.Another, the reception ladies look to be always busy except collect money.

This is a shorter version of the review I left on Yelp. I went to him for a second opinion. He insisted on knowing what the other doctor had said before giving his opinion. He didn't tell me about an add-oncost procedure before putting a numbing agent in my nose - to do that procedure. It felt slimy - literally. Caveat emptor.

Complete duplicate paper work was demanded over a filling of the net form. Repeated reminding calls to discourage appointment due I don't have supplement insurance besides Medicare. Unfriendly nurse just pushed me to pay. 5 minutes examinationof the doctor. No sense of listening the patience. No reading of filled up form. Rushed to the next patient.
