Verified Patient Reviews
As new patient, i was very concerned about the staff and care i might get. The staff was helpful snd efficient. . Dr Lee was professional and very through snd i really liked her
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 not tell 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.
This was my first appointment with Dr. Lee and I was very impressed with her and her staff. I'm looking forward to having her as my primary care physician.
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 an office 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.
Doctor was very informative, approachable, and listened to my concerns before giving me answers.
It was a pleasure dealing with Dr. Lee. Her staff was very friendly and I was seen at the actual appointment time. She explained everything very clearly. I look forward to dealing with Dr. Lee in the future.
I am so thrilled to have Dr. Lee as my primary care physician. She is completely confident in her diagnoses and treatment plans, and you always know that you're in good hands when she's treating you. She's an overall wonderful person and a fantastic doctor. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Lee is professional, extremely competent and thorough. She does not treat you like a drone, and tells you exactly what needs to be done and guides you through the recovery process. The best general physician
Dr. Lee was so sweet and professional, this was my first visit and she made me feel completely comfortable
Fue exelente !!!!
Dr. Lee is always very knowledgeable and comforting. She addresses all of my concerns and considers all avenues before jumping into treatments. She is a fantastic doctor!
From her receptionist to the 2 young men who were assistants and the Doc herself, a ll were very on the ball. Dr Lee is straight forward and professional. I believe we will work well together.
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 to be 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.
I'm so impressed with Dr Lee, she's very thorough and makes sure that preventive measures are done for her patient's well being. Thanks to zocdoc I found her.
Great service . the office is friendly and inviting and the medical assistant s where caring and friendly. And doctor Lee is great and caring and compassionate. I highly recommended her.
This is my 2nd time visiting Dr Leeband I recommend anyone to visit her. She is friendly and welcoming, professional and gives you an opportunity to talk to her about anything. Her staff also made me feel at ease. The office was very clean and located in a new area. So glad I finally found a doctor I like.
She is really GOOD! she also took the time to explained everything you need to know. Very professional!!
Great office and Doctor. Very professional and elegant attitude. Very knowledgeble! I was impressed by the beautiful office too. So happy I found great doctor finally.
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. Lee took 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!
Dr. Lee is efficient but patient and I feel she really cares for my health. She can be busy, so may not get a same day appointment, but that proves how many people trust her.
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 I left 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 very nice and went out of her way to personally help me schedule a specialist visit, in order to help me get an appointment sooner than I might be able to on my own.
Dr. Lee is a fantastic doctor and her staff is just as excellent. She goes out of her way to make sure that I receive the best care possible. I'm forever grateful.
her exam was fairly thorough
This was my second visit with dr Lee- no need to find another, she's excellent.
She was thorough and very kind! She went out of her way to make sure I knew exactly what was going on.
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 fill out. 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.
She squeezed me in and while she was "quick" and didn't have as much time as I would have liked for a full history - she was efficient and thorough:)
Dr. Lee and her staff were very professional and polite. Overall, it was a good experience to be in Dr. Lee's office. Thank you Stacy and Pinky!
Very professional. The waiting time was fast. All the nurses were very poite and Dr Lee had very nice.
Dr. was great and the office was very clean and beautiful. The staff were great too!
Great office! Love the doctor and staff.
Dr. Janet Lee was very professional and insightful for my visit. She was very caring in her approach and very knowledgeable. The wait was very short and the staff were very professional and warm. I would recommend seeing her to everyone.
Dr. Lee has a nice personality and very knowledgeable. She is a patient's advocate and I would recommend my daughter also see her.
Dr. Lee and her three staff members I dealt with were just great. I was not at my best and they treated me kindly and efficiently. I really appreciated their help.
Excellent experience!! Not to mention that she has a very competent, well mannered & smart staff!
Very professional and kind. I felt very comfortable with doctor lee!
Thank you to Dr. Lee for the great experience I had at her medical office. Dr. Lee is very professional and efficient. Thank you to her staff member Stacy also for being friendly and very helpful with the process of getting me in and out of my appointment in a very timely manner. I will be definitely referring this office to my friends and relatives.
I would highly recommend Dr. Lee, she is very professional, through and prompt. Her staff is amazing as well.
As always, Dr. Lee and her staff are friendly and very professional.
DEFINITELY would see her again. Very thorough, thoughtful, and dedicated.
I was very impressed at my physical this morning. Dr. Lee was very thorough and comforting as she explained each procedure and the reason she thought it necessary. I appreciated her kind bedside manner and could tell she cared about her patients even the brand new ones like myself. The office environment was also very welcoming with friendly administrative personal. My nurse was great and understanding to my "not doing well w/ blood being drawn" she allowed me to take my time and was quick and painless.
Very efficient! Listened to all my needs, and didn't look like she was rushing like a lot of Dr.s I've been too. Shes also really friendly and easy to talk to.
Such a refreshing experience after so many disappointing doctors. I had almost given up on the idea that there was a doctor out there that would simply listen, and talk about what is going on. A huge bonus is her gracious and kind staff.
She's wonderful! It's been years since I've had the courage to get a physical. She was able to help me and be honest with me without a lecture. She is very patient with my anxiety and double checked to make sure everything was ok with me so she didn't stress me out. I used to dread seeing doctors but not anymore! Thank you so much Dr. Lee :)
great experience, Dr Lee and staff are nice
So far so good. I agree with her diagnosis which will aid me in improving my health. She seems like she genuinely cares about her patients well being.
I appreciate Dr. Lee so much. My problem is a bit of a mystery but she is doing everything she can. And I can always count on her staff for any questions or help as well. Stacy is especially helpful to me!
Great doctor who is very personable and puts the patient at ease instantly. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
Best doctor finally I am happy and relief.
It was great! I felt very comfortable and i was definitely in good hands. Dr. Lee and the nurse were attentive and knowledgeable. I will definitely be back!
It was a very comfortable environment. Dr Lee plus her staff were very warm and welcoming.
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 a great 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!
The best doctor I have seen in California. She knew what to do and took care of business.
She was friendly and knowledgable. I would recommend her to family and friends.
Janet Lee is the best. I don't hesitate to see her when I'm have health issues. She is determined to help and thinks outside the box if the problem persists. She doesn't give up on you.
She was warm and friendly but knowledgeable and takes a lifestyle change approach rather than instantly prescribing Medication. I really appreciate that
It was excellent and staffs were very pleasant.
The office is on the Southwest Corner in a Medical center that makes it very easy to find...Dr. Lee is great and very knowledgeable and very efficient..Once you see her she gets you in and out:)..All her staff are beautiful ladies that have a very pleasant and warm personalities and make the atmosphere very calming.
was excellent. She was helpful. Office was modern and clean. Staff cooerative
I just had my first visit with Dr. Lee for a physical. I was the first patient, so I went in right away with no waiting! She was very thorough and took her time with me. It was also very convenient to have my blood work done in her office.
I am so impressed by Dr. Lee's balance of a warm bedside manner and insightful expertise. She instantly made me feel comfortable on my first time visit and thoroughly addressed my concerns with many options.
a recent hospitalisation brought up possible surgery - thought i was going to be stuck with pacemaker for rest of life! a friend of family asked dr. lee if she could do favor an see me in hospital. she kindly took my case and discharg me next day. as she instruct, I follow up in her office for compete physical. during visit, she electrically send my hospital note to a profesor of cardiology at ucla, an electophysiologist I think, and I receive an opinion right away. his office call to work me into schedule next day. all in week i know what is going on. NO PACEMAKER! dr. Lee THANK YOU!
Dr. Lee is thorough, takes her time and is very caring of her patients.
Loved the doctor, staff and office!
This was my first visit with Dr. Lee and thus far very happy with overall experience. I would LOVE to recommend her, but I think that happens in time and with trust. I enjoyed the staff, they made me feel right at home, and were very pleasant. I will go back and hope Dr. Lee will become my permanent doctor. I also arrived during their lunch hour but they still took care of me promptly. I would highly recommend her, but as noted that will take some time in me getting to know her.
She's great! Answered my questions and concerns!
Dr. Lee is a fantastic doctor, I am SOOO glad that I found her on Zoc Doc. Everything that was reviewed by previous patients was true. She does care for her patients and her staff is friendly and amazing as well. Thank You Dr. Lee! Thank You Zoc Doc!!!
Less time of a wait would be nice :) other than that I love my doc she's really nice and conversational and has really good English :)
Loved Dr. Lee! She spent lots of time with me and she was really nice. Her office is beautiful and the staff overall were wonderful.
It was excellent! the doctor Janet Lee and her staff were great professionals at there jobs
I love Dr Lee. She is the most caring doctor I have ever had. She is so genuine and really does everything in her power to help you or make sure you get proper help from a specialist. She is the only doctor to make any progress on fixing my health issue that other doctors could not solve. I can't thank her enough for her help and the care she shows me. Even her nurses/assistants are awesome and personable :)
This office was amazing, beautifully decorated. The staff was exceptionally efficient , friendly and nice. Wait time was great , could not have gone in to see the doctor in no more than 5 minutes. I filled out my paperwork ( which was a breeze) and was then called to the back immediately for exam. Lastly , Dr. Lee is a wonderful physician. I came in for a rash and she diagnosed it right away. She then ran some test ( blood work / breathing) and found that I had mild breathing issues. Overall I couldn't be happier. I felt well looked after , thorough exam , up to date technology and kind and caring doctor. A super plus ; rep called me back in 4 days with my blood test results and emailed me a link to their portal. love this place , highly recommended .
Good visit, felt like my concerns were addressed.
Very nice office with professional staff. Dr. Lee was attentive and offered advice on areas outside of her specialty. Very satisfied!
i believe she will be able to help me with all my medical problems also very nice and informed
An amazing physician with patience, impressive diagnostic knowledge and excellent bedside manner.
My rating says it all! I would like to also comment on the reviews from others for DR.Janet Lee .Thank you very much ,what you all wrote was spot on & was the decision maker for me on choosing a Dr. I had not been to a Dr. for 15 yrs so I had no idea where or who to go to. She wasnt the closest Dr but I feel with your help I made the best choice .Thank you all, Special thanks to Zoc Doc for this website & Dr.J Lee for having me as your new patient .
Exceptionally sweet and informative. I will be back for follow-up.
she is always sweet as ever i just love her :) her staff and everyone that works there is always so nice they are all so very nice and sweet you will love Dr. Lee and her great staff!
I highly recommend Dr. Lee. She is very knowledgeable and caring, she really wants to help the patient with whatever issues they have. She considers all possible options and makes sure the patient gets care whether it be from her or a specialist (she doesn't hesitate to give referrals if you need a test she cannot perform). Her annual physical exams are very thorough, I definitely feel cared for. All of her staff is also fantastic!
Dr. Lee was timely, personable and attentive. She gave me multiple opportunities to ask more questions and a clear plan of care. I am a nurse with exposure to many physicians and recommend Dr. Lee highly.
It was awesome better than All my expectation. Dr. Lee was very professional in all aspects And deep concern for patients well-being. I discovered a great Primary Care Doctor And highly recommend her if you are looking for a caring Doctor who pulls no punches.
I highly recommend Dr. Lee to everyone who is looking for a primary care physician or unhappy with their current doctor. I finally found a doctor who worked with me instead of using a physician's assistant. The front staff was very pleasant as well, and the slight wait was due to me being a new patient filling out paperwork. She was very thorough asking me questions about my overall well-being such as work, diet, home, exercise, family history, etc. I look forward to visiting again!
It's refreshing to encounter a doctor who has a warm smile and friendly persona. Dr. Lee takes the time to talk to you and is genuinely concerned about your condition. Very professional and easy to converse with. Great doctor! Her clinic is beautiful too, the waiting area looked like a chic med spa. I think I found my primary care physician for life!
I was very happy with her bedside manner and interest she showed to me. The entire process with ZocDoc was easy and impressive!!
Enjoyed meeting Dr. Lee. She referred me to a Dermatologist for treatment.
She is very kind and thorough! The office is very pleasant.
Dr. Lee is an excellent internist. She is well versed in many aspects of medicine and relayed her knowledge to me in a very clear and understanding manner. I have referred two other people to her as a result of my visit with her.
awesome doctor. Had a sinus infection for sometime, and she caught it right away. Great office staff. Friendly, empathetic, and funny. Willing to go the extra mile, and stay as late as needed to see every patient through their ailments.
I've seen Dr Lee twice now....and she is awesome. Dr Lee is personable, courteous, knowledgeable and very professional. Stacey and Veronica are awesome too!
Her receptionist, Stacey, is an absolute angel. She went out of her way to be helpful, as I was about to have my first doc. visit with Dr. Lee. Finally, an enjoyable greeting at a doctor's office!
The office and all of it's staff is very welcoming and patient.
Really good. Dr. Lee listened as I gave a lengthy explanation of the reason for the visit. She gave me a thorough explanation of steps to take to provide some relief. I'm very happy with my choice as I move forward with Dr. Lee.
Dr H Lee is very efficient, knowledgable, and thorough. I was impressed with her recommendations for treatment, and diagnostic plan. The office is attractively furnished and appears to be well run using up to date technology, with little waste of materials and time.
Vey nice and professional... both the Dr. and the office... I felt very comfortable and I would definitely return.
Dr. Lee was nice and very courtesy she listen she ask questions i was ask is it anything else i need to tell her before she leaves we all forget or feel we don't want the doctor to feel like we are hypercondriac's because i do have a lot of real problems but she never made me feel that way and that meant a lot to me thks for that Dr. Lee :)
Very nice and helpful! Thank you Dr. Lee!
She is detailed and explains things through with you so you are not left wondering about the treatment options and the exam. Easy to talk to and listens to find a solution and gives solutions for follow up.
Dr Lee is a professional who is honest, straight forward, kind and thoughtful. She is "old fashion" in that she truly has the patient's concerns in her heart and it is her desire to give the best service to achieve results that will make the patient comfortable asap. I was very pleased with everyone in her office. Excellent and professional service at its very best! Thank you for taking me as a patient.
Went well. Thanks.
zocdoc was the best app I have ever downloaded. I love Dr. Lee she is very complete. She listens and cares about you. Here odffice help they are proffesional and extremely plesant. I had a very awsome experience..Thank you ZocDoc... Annette Hegmann ps; I am going back to see Dr. Lee
I thought Dr.Lee was great! She was very thorough and took plenty of time to answer all of my questions and concerns. The only thing I would like to see change would be for the office to accept credit cards as a form of payment. They take only cash or check which I was not prepared for at the time of my visit.
Dr. Lee is very caring and she really wants to help. Even after all the tests I told her that I've been through with all the doctors and their results saying I'm fine, that didn't stop her from coming up with other things to try and other things to consider. She recommended different tests for other possibilities to the problem. She is very detailed and asks questions to get to the root of the problem. One thing though... I wish she accepted debit/credit cards. Cash or check only so make sure you have either before going in!
Very thorough. Her specialty in heart disease gave me comfort going in and her expertise helped me solve a previously incorrect diagnosis. Totally awesome. Sent prescription immediately during our conversation so when i left office it was already ready at the pharmacy. Staff is super polite and attentive. I didn't wait more than 5 seconds; even though someone was in front of me, the receptionist made a point of greeting me anyway. Highly recommended.
She had an excellent bedside manner and made a difficult situation easy for me to understand and made me relaxed. Very professional and wonderful service!
Very easy appointment setting. Nice clean new office. Great staff.
I was seen right after I finished my paperwork. The office and rooms are clean. The doctor was great! She made me feel like my concerns were important and spent a lot of time talking to me about what options I had. Definitely would recommend her!! There was no rush about the visit.
She's very nice and thorough with her diagnosis. Would def. recommend her.
She is extremely nice and laughed at my jokes. Her staff was just as nice and helpful.
It was my first time there that why I put 4 stars for recommendation but she is amazing with me while I was there.
As soon as i filled out my paperwork everything from there went fast and easy. Very professional and i recommend her to anyone.
friendly, very knowledgeable, was seen right away
I was very comfortable with Dr Lee and with Kris. Both were professional, friendly, and polite. I have 100% confidence in this doctor.
Dr. Lee didn't make me wait and was very personable. She treated me like she actually cared about my well being. She was knowledgeable about my condition and was willing to help me get a referral if I need one. She talked to me like an equal, unlike many other doctors. Her front desk person was amazing - volunteered to call the insurance company for me to get my provider changed on the spot and saw the process through. Very friendly and nice!
Dr Lee was very easy to talk to. She asked lots of questions to get at the heart of the issues. She explained our goals as well. She was very accomodating.
Dr. Lee was very professional and helpful. She and her staff worked very diligently to get through the paperwork for an out-of-state vacationer who needed help with getting her physical needs met. I'd give her an A+!
Very thorough and professional.
everything went very smooth and she my visit with her was better then any other visit i had with any other docors.
Good experience. Wait wasn't too bad, and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
very nice person.
GREAT Dr.! Will return.
Dr. Lee was very professional and thorough when examing me. I was pretty sure I knew exactly what the problem was, but she was able to confirm with an easy test and then discussed ways to avoid this ailment in the future.
The Dr was very informative.
Very comfortable speaking to her and she was listening to all my concerns.
Felt more like I was visiting the only used car lot in town rather than a professional doctor's office...would NOT recommend!
I had to wait a long time and they hadn't correctly updated their calendar to reflect the rescheduling completed via ZocDoc, but Dr. Lee saw me regardless of the confusion. Her and the staff are very friendly. Dr. Lee seems highly knowledgeable; however, I found it odd that she expects me to come in for a visit every 3 months to renew my birth control prescription. Every other doctor I've ever had has been fine with giving me this type of prescription for a full year as long as I don't experience any complications.
She was great! Personally phoned me to let me know she needed to change my original appointment time. Very friendly & helpful.
Dr. Lee was very professional and she quickly made me to feel comfortable. She was very easy to understand and she broke things down to a laymen's level. I really liked her bedside manner a overall service.
