Dr. Lee could have been more polite, rather than indifferent and dismissive. It would have been helpful for she and theresident to use more comprehensive language, as I’m clearly not a medical professional.

I was delighted to meet Dr. Lee and agreed with her treatment plan for two upcoming surgeries I will need to have. She answered all my questions and addressed my concerns. Her office staff was quite helpful, very pleasant and efficient. I am so glad I found her and am confident going forward that she will take the utmost care of me! Thank-you! ~ Barbara K.

I usually don’t write reviews but WOW what an amazing doctor. Her bedside manner was so great, something that I alway struggle in finding with my precious gynecologists. When she did my Pap smear, I felt absolutely zero pain or discomfort. Any question I had she was very open and candid about answering with zero judgment. Definitely will recommend her to all of my girlfriends

Referred me out and did not really ask me many questions. Appointment was less than 15 minutes and I did not feel like the Dr had good bedside manner. I did not feel that the doctor cared about my issue or had any desire in following up or keeping me as a patient. I did not think that the visit was worth my copay considering that I already had a script and wanted a good recommendation for a surgeon.

Dr Lee is great and she’s very efficient. She will make sure everything is taken care of in a timely manner and answer all your questions. The front desk sometimes is nice when she’s in a good mood and if she’s not in a good mood she can be a little grumpy but overall I recommend the doctor
