Verified Patient Reviews
Professional and kind.
Dr. Lee was responsive, professional, knowledgeable, and listened to my concerns. He asked lots of questions to get to the bottom of things, and didn't seem to make assumptions before gathering all of the information.
Very professional and very personable
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 took my 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 getting the right treatment and that my doctor also is concerned and optimistic as i am about my future health!
Office staff was cordial and prompt. Doctor's approach was professional and humanly. His clinical inspection was thorough and deep. Overall experience was nice.
Dr Lee was very friendly and explained very well.
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.
He is very knowledgable and took the time to answer all my questions and give thoughtful explanations.
Dr. Lee was very professional, gave me good advice, and didn't appear rushed while with me.
Dr. Edward addressed my problem and was very efficient. Did not prescribe any unnecessary meds and was very clear about what my ailment was.
Average not highly recommended
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.
Dr. Lee was amazing. He's calm, kind and patiently explained everything. I recommend him.
I had a good experience as a new patient. The Doctor saw me on short notice. The staff was attentive and pleasent.
Very knowledgeable, and performed endoscopy right in the office. Very happy with my visit...
Office staff was friendly and helpful. Facility was modern and spotless. Most of all Dr. Lee was great. Highly recommend him.
This man has his own diagnosis in mind without your input. He is convinced everyone is stupid. Does not listen.
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-on cost procedure before putting a numbing agent in my nose - to do that procedure. It felt slimy - literally. Caveat emptor.
Dr. Edward Lee was very friendly. He listens to you patiently and gives proper advice. All in all, it was a good experience.
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 examination of the doctor. No sense of listening the patience. No reading of filled up form. Rushed to the next patient.
