It is her goal to earn, through knowledge, technology, clarity, and compassion, the trust of all her patients that will last a lifetime.

I was extremely disappointed during my visit. i had testing done, never got results and I had to follow up with the front desk 3x to get results. I was also called for an appt. and the front desk could nottell me what the appt. was for, it took them 6hrs to call me back and say it was an appt to just check how my allergies are doing. I feel they have you come into this office unnecessarily and a phone call could suffice in a lot of case. i am definitely switching to another doctor.

I loved Dr. Lee for a long time... however when she wouldn't give me my blood lab results over the phone my feelings began to change. I had recently moved over an hour away from her clinic AND was going tobe out of the state for a little less than 2 months. Even so, she refused to give me the lab results I asked for with her front desk explaining "it's not that important so after you get back home from traveling you can come in and get them".... aka they want to charge me for an office visit. I was so sad when this happened... and I called about 5 times with the same response. 5 months later, I still have no idea what my results are and now I see no reason in commuting an hour to Dr. Lee.

Wow. Best doctor I've ever been to. I love Dr. Lee. We were laughing the whole time and yet we got more tests done than at any other visit I've been to. I know this doesn't matter in regards to anoffice but the restoration style decor of the office made the visit very cozy and comfortable. I felt like I was checking into a hotel. The concierge was awesome and friendly and called me by name. As I was lying down to get my thyroid ultrasound I noticed the crown molding in the roof. Everything was beautifully done. I will never leave Dr. Lee.

First, I love her staff. I've left two doctors because their staffs where rude or at best, unhelpful. But this staff is amazing. They remember you, are delighted to see you, and eager to help in any way. Example: When Ileft my first visit I asked the front desk gal about a prescription and she said, "It's already with your pharmacy and ready for pick up"! Dr. Lee is wonderful: She keeps pace with best practices in medical care, while helping you consider lifestyle changes to improve health. And she is excellent at collaborating with specialists and coordinating your total care. I highly recommend Dr. Lee and her amazing team.

Dr. Lee was amazing! I have been in search of a primary care physician since I moved to the west coast six years ago, and I am happy to say that I think I have finally found my person! Dr. Leetook her time getting to know me and my concerns, which made me feel very comfortable. She ordered some tests, which were done right away by her extremely friendly staff. And while I was getting tests done, Stacy at the front desk was even on the phone with my insurance company to get all the details for me. Overall, it was one of the best experiences I have ever had in a doctors office! Thank you Dr. Lee and staff!

I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Lee. I never thought that I would like going to the doctor. They let me know that they received my online information but that there was also additional information that I needed to fillout. The Staff was very professional and friendly. Being professional and polite is very important to me. It was a great visit, great location and great environment.

I was a little skeptical as I had booked the appointment online without any referral to Dr. Lee. I literally selected her based solely on her reviews from ZocDoc and availability. I am so happy to say that I had agreat experience here! I happened to be running a few minutes late for my appointment because I could not find the building. The receptionist was very friendly and provided me with directions. When I arrived, she greeted me with a smile and had me fill out necessary paperwork as I was a first-time patient. I was seen within ten minutes of my arrival. Dr. Lee was very nice and easy to talk to. By the end of my appointment I honestly felt like I had been there before. She was kind, attentive, and did a great job at making a newbie feel very comfortable. Finding a new doctor (that you actually like) is typically very hard. I'm so thankful for ZocDoc and happy that I found Dr. Lee!
