Professional statement

Lakeshore Clinic does not accept new patients with DSHS as a primary OR secondary insurance. **Please be advised when booking an appointment all insurance plan information needs to be filled out ahead of time** Dr Lee is a graduate of the University of Washington School of Medicine and completed his residency at Valley Family Medicine in Renton, Washington. He is Board Certified in Family Medicine and joined the practice in 2014. Dr Lee enjoys practicing preventive medicine, chronic disease management and sports medicine. Philosophy of care: "I believe the physician's role is to be a guide and advocate for his patients to achieve their optimum health. The physician-patient relationship is an equal partnership. Medicine is not a 'one size fits all' situation. My hope is to help each patient achieve their individual health goals. The greatest satisfaction of Family Medicine is having the opportunity to develop lifelong relationships with patients." Dr Lee grew up in a suburb of Seattle and feels fortunate to call the beautiful Northwest his home. Outside of medicine, Dr. Lee enjoys spending time with his lovely wife and watching their young daughter grow. They like to take advantage of the bountiful outdoor activities that the Northwest provides. He also enjoys playing the piano and guitar as well as going golfing.

I was in town for work, so he's not my main doctor but I wish he was in my city. James is personable, approachable and efficient, plus his staff is just as good. One of the best doctor visits I've had.

Having just moved here from Texas, we are all in search for the right doctor. I had already taken my younger son to see a pediatrician but I will now be making the switch for all of us to Dr. Lee.He was well mannered, thorough, listened carefully while helping me understand what was wrong. I appreciated his kind attitude and patience with my 2.5 year old while I was trying to listen to him and monitor my son. It's great to find a new doctor we can all feel comfortable with.

Amazing... first of all I was like 30 minutes late and they were still able to see me on time.. actually they were waiting for me.. then when I described my symptoms to the doctor he talked to me as thoughhe wanted to help and gave me some really great options.. it's hard to find a doc that will not only listen to you but not make you feel like your crazy or stupid ... I RARELY go to the doctors but I will go more frequently to see DR Lee... thank you

We liked that the clinic wasn't crowded - by the time we had finished the paperwork as new patients they were ready for us. They were also accommodating for us having a baby and other requests. In general, the experience feltmore 1:1. Dr. Lee was great. We were in for our annual exam. He was generous with his time, discussed our expectations, answered all of our questions and provided many other recommendations. The clinic followed up after the blood work, I also found the patient portal useful.
