Dr. Lee is the first endocrinologist who actually listens! I've been to 5 other doctors who have dismissed my symptoms and Dr. Lee finally found a cause for them. Also his staff is excellent! I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

Dr. Lee is great! I followed him to his new practice. The wait time was less than 10 minutes to be called in. The girls at the front were great too! I am so happy & appreciative for this doctor! He listens to my concerns, & makes sure I have the best treatment that works for me. I highly recommend him, especially if you are suffering with a thyroid disease!

Dr. Lee is great. Takes time to discuss all your options, what test results mean, etc. Friendly staff. Because he doesn't rush, he does fall a little behind sometimes. If that's the trade-off for not rushing, I'll take it.

I have a less than common disease; and he really listens to you about any symptoms associated with it and into the future. He's clear and concise; as well as incredibly cordial; probably one of the nicest doctors I have ever met. The initial consultation lasted longer than normal; he talked with me about everything and again, he LISTENS! I highly recommend Dr. Hong Lee to anyone looking for a Endocrinologist, or seeking a second opinion on anything thyroid, hormone, or metabolic related.

Dr. Lee was friendly, respectful, informative & thorough! He not only made sure that I understood what his concerns were, but also why, what our next steps are & what to expect from him, the medication & future visits. Dr. Lee also has a great sense of humor; he kept our serious conversation light, (which I truly appreciated). When I left my appointment, I felt thoroughly prepared, informed & confident that I was in good hands! I would absolutely recommend Dr. Hong Lee to anyone looking for a great Endocrinologist!

My appt was confirmed for the Bolingbrook office but when I arrived 30 min early for my appt, it was actually for the Hinsdale office. I called the correct office and they were still able to see me. Dr Lee's assistant and Dr Lee was very polite, professional and asked me many questions trying to get to the bottom of my problem. The office staff, medical assistant and Dr Lee apologized for the office mix-up. I appreciate that. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

If you have any reason to see an endo, I would bet you won't find a better one around. I know I will continue to follow up with him regardless of insurance or location. Simply the best.
