I received several unexpected charges after-the-fact, which I verified with my insurance company. If you do your research across other sites, you'll find several cases about questionable charges from this office.

Very sweet but looked at my throat and determined I had strep without doing a swab which is concerning. There are several diseases that have white spots as a symptom so I would have preferred her to actually do a swab than just assume.

Doctor was pleasant and to the point. Seemed like a nice lady, however the office was pretty out dated. That turned me off a little, but the Dr was very professional and nice. Weirdly, she did prescribe me allergy medicine foran infection which I’ve read will do nothing for my symptoms. And prescribed cough medicine for no cough. But we will see how that turns out.

Usually, many doctors can seem arrogant, aggressive, or pushy but Mr. Lee was very gentle, friendly, and warm with her interactions. I had a great experience speaking with her. She was very thorough about explaining my concerns using anatomyreferences. The nurse helping was also very kind and warm. I would continue going.

Absolutely horrible experience, do not recommend to anyone ever. Went for my MMR vaccination, and not only did they not have it, they sent me to a pharmacy that ALSO DID NOT HAVE THE MMR VACCINATION!!! They charged me for literallynothing, no services provided. They did nothing for me. At all. Total garbage.

Doctor Lee has officially become my favorite doctor. Ever. She was very warm and genuine. And she explained everything very clearly including the science and biology behind the problems haha. I kid you not, she took out visual displays and evendrew up diagrams to help me understand. I loved that because it always frustrates me when doctors don't explain the reasons behind issues. She even addressed issues beyond what I went in for. I don't generally talk to people very openly but she was so amicable. Absolutely amazing.

I went to Dr. Lee for a regular annual physical. Dr. Lee was very thorough and had great bedside manner. I felt comfortable being seen by her and she explained in detail the results of her examination, which I very muchappreciated. She explained both the anatomy of the health issues and why I would have certain symptoms that I might not think is related to what she was explaining. All of this was in layman's terms but not too dumbed down that I felt like it wasn't thoroughly explained. The appointment once seen by Dr. Lee was quite efficient. I didn't feel like we went into a ton of detail or explanation on my additional questions, but she did answer the question with good suggestions to try and I probably didn't really express that any of the topics were huge issues. Her staff was also very nice and courteous (though some are somewhat reserved). I will say that there was quite the wait. I showed up a few minutes before my appointment and there were only a couple additional quick forms I had to fill out, but it was still 30-45 minutes before I even saw the nurse for blood work. Then around an hour after my appointment time, Dr. Lee finally called me into the office for the examination. In fairness, they tell you on ZocDoc to block off an hour of your time, but I didn't really expect beyond an hour. Overall a decent visit and I'd probably go again, but just maybe block off extra time next time.

The doctor was extremely patronizing, insulting and wasn't able to help me with a cough. Had to schedule a new apt wiyh another doctore to get help. Unfortunately apt I could find for the day. Do not recommend.

Long wait time, took about an hour and a half from the time I got there until I left. The doctor was nice and pretty thorough, and the woman that took my blood was very nice, as well. Would probably recommendand go back if needed to go to a doctor that wasn't an urgent care.

Doctor was a nice lady, I have no complain. But the staff there at the front desk was a joke. The male staff smelt cigarette smoke in the waiting room, apparently he smokes during his shift. Evidently he was outside smokingas I was leaving the building. I have never seen such practice as a clinic staff.

I am a type of person who has had lots of bad doctor's office experiences in NYC and have developed a natural aversion to going at all. However, my experience with Dr. Lee was excellent and ended with me voluntarily schedulinganother appointment. Dr. Lee gets right to the point in a very friendly and knowledgeable way. She is very patient and explains concepts in plain terms insofar as diagnosis as well as practices for healthy living. I highly recommend her especially for those (like myself) who have had less than ideal experiences in NYC.
