It was my first visit and I agreed to see a PA for my yearly skin check. I saw Nancy andshe was wonderful. She addressed every concern I had and was very thorough in my skin check. Her assistant was very sweet as well. I also needed a biopsy and it was handled very quickly. I’m very thankful to have found this office!

Dr. Lee is great! I am so glad that I found her and this office. Everyone is so polite and friendly. They always try to make you comfortable when having biopsies performed or stitches removed. Scheduling is easy and never a long wait once I arrive. Most importantly, I was very worried about a mole on my arm, while checking that they looked around and found a small mole on the back of my shoulder that turned out to be melanoma in situ, thankfully, they cought it in time and it hadn't spread. Thank you Dr. Lee and everyone at Halcyon Dermatology!

My son was nervous that he would need a biopsy and it would hurt. I explain this to Dr. Lee and she reassured him that is rare and she would start by just looking. She announced the good news, nothing needs to be done but to watch the area. He was so relieved. She was wonderful!

Very efficient and clean operation. They seemed nice and professional but approachable. Communication can improve. No one introduced themselves to me, including Dr. Lee. Which made me file like just another unit in the HMO machine. I'd recommend nametags and a pleasant introduction by everyone on staff, especially since i was there for a medical issue. I can be quite frightening - so I stopped them and asked their names and their positions. Once this was done, it was a nice visit and they seemed to care. Since moving to SoCal from the NW i've noticed that the medical system is not nearly as personable as in Oregon and Washington. Maybe its just the system or maybe manners or likely the urgency of moving patients through the system. i go back because I don't think it would be better elsewhere.

As soon as I met her I liked her. The explanations she gave me for what procedures I felt I was interested in were completely understandable. Because this was the first time in the office I don't feel qualified to answer many of the questions listed.

Dr. Lee was very caring with sincerity. She didnt rush the appointment. She was open and helpful to solving my daughter's acne issue. For example, we were able to have a two-way conversation about various options and she wasnt jusgemental to my parental opinions. In the end, Dr. Lee was searching for a resolution not a permanent patient. I really appreciate that especially in Orange County!

Had an appointment today for an annual check. Brought a book to read in waiting room and didn't even get through one page before being seen! Everyone at the office is extremely professional and discreet. I asked about additional treatments and information was given, but no coaxing at all. Highly recommend.

Was very impressed that Dr. Katherine Lee took her time to review my history, and understand my situation as diagnosed with Melanoma last year. She was very concerned with my treatment plan, and personally made contact with area specialists to provide additional referrals for me to consult with. Dr. Lee went beyond what I've seen from most doctor's in pursuing the best care for me. I highly recommend Dr. Lee as a dermatologist!
