Dr. Lee was helpful and patient. While I am not sure there was a conclusion to my situation, she offered some suggestions and was thorough. I was comfortable throughout my whole experience. The nurse and receptionist were a bit more hasty and impersonal. The office is a bit outdated but overall appeared tidy.

Dr. Lee has very good bedside manners. Her explanations were concise and easy to follow. She was clear in what I needed to do to manage my health. When I left, she forgot to mention something and took the time to find me to go over what she forgot to tell me. I really had a comfortable and pleasant visit with Dr. Lee!

Pure perfection. Was able to get a complete physical on my lunch hour and still had 15 minuets to kill before heading back to work. Everyone there is friendly and professional. And no snotty people with attitudes at reception.

She's amazing. I've been seeing her since 2014. I love that shes' a doctor who doesn't focus on pills for everything. Healthy living and healthy eating is the top advice she gives and her most prominent recommendations/diagnosis. I also appreciate that she goes over the blood-work with us both viewing the screen and she offers suggestions for improvement that are in line with complimentary practices as well as traditional Western practices. She's the best.

I was a patient of Dr. Lee's for two years for annual physicals. At first I was pleased that she was taking time to do additional testing to follow-up on my particular situation. Then, however, I experienced the sheer incompetence of her office. First, I was overcharged for an office visit and wasn't told about it until I arrived a year later for my next annual physical. In other words, had I not shown up again they would have pocketed the money because they had not bothered to call me in that whole year to tell me of their mistake. Then, on my second visit I needed a prescription called in for a prior authorization from my insurance company. It took Dr. Lee's office nearly 2 MONTHS to call in the prescription and that was only after several calls I had to make to see if it had been called in yet! The office was completely unprofessional, never updating their patient along the way, and definitely not working to help the patient. What a complete let-down.

This place was a big disappointment. No wonder they had availability on a short term notice. The facility felt dirty and old. The doctor barely spoke to you. She seemed to want to add on all these out of scope tests on my labs (for my annual physical). I would never go back and I do not recommend other people go.

She’s very nice but dismissed my concerns. She also tries very hard to go the natural route, which is fine but not suited for me.

This facility did not appear to be a customary western medicine practice. When I booked this appointment I stated that it was for a prescription refill. Upon arrival I was told they do not provide the general type of prescription (this was for a common prescription that is customarily obtained through a PCP or general practitioner). The prescription is taken on a daily basis and I needed an emergency refill. The office should have informed me in advance so that I could have made an appointment to go elsewhere rather than waste my time. As a result, I will be out of a daily medication until I can see another doctor.

She was pretty awful. I asked for resources on a specific condition and she told me to google it. Didn't even provide me a list of clinics that I could go to or resource centers. She was dismissive. I wouldn't recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Lee’s Office is very efficient. She is my PCP and I was there for my annual physical. Upon arriving, I was asked to fill out paperwork immediately. I didn’t have to wait long before being seen by the nurse who checked my height/ weight, drew blood, etc. I also had a wait of less than 5 minutes before being seen by Dr. Lee. She’s friendly and knowledgeable.

Dr. Lee was friendly and careful to explain everything in detail, as were the nurses. The wait time was short, and overall the visit was fine. I would not recommend going to this office, however, because their admin structure is messy and inconsistent. I was billed for a followup consultation that I did not need and received vague non-answers about the entire process from multiple people. Disappointed because I liked the doctor.
