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.

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.

Kind, confident, and professional! I wish she'd spent more time listening about my previous treatments and why I was on the treatment I was on, but I'll give her way a go nonetheless.

I was so impressed with Dr. Lee at my yearly physical that I not only made her my primary care doctor but returned for OB/GYN check ups as well. She is thorough and incredibly knowledgeable.

Dr. Lee is always professional and explains symptoms/meds with as much detail and you'd like. Wait times can sometimes be longer than expected but nothing over 30-45 mins

All was good except waiting time. Also I wish she could make a phone call to follow up my annual physical instead of having me at her office in person for just a few minutes follow up talk. I still appreciate it but It's not easy to go to doctor's office during work hours so please give your patients a call to follow up unless they need shots or something else.

Have not received a follow up from the office after 9 days, have called to no answer and only received a 'voicemail full' response. Was instructed to make a follow up appointment to review blood work results, but also was informed that follow up appointments would not be covered by insurance. Overall, just difficult.

Don't go to this Dr unless you want vitamins. She's great at providing lists of expensive vitamins and over the counter remedies that do not work. I came in with severe anxiety and heart pain and she did not even bother to listen to my heart. Do not waste your time, go to a real doctor.

Dr. Lee and her assistant are very friendly, professional, and thorough. The wait time is never more than 10 minutes. She always answers my questions and addresses my concerns with a lot of information. I've been seeing Dr. Lee for about 3 years now and I would highly recommend her.

Terrible. She refused any information on professional advice for whether or not the pill was a good idea for my situation, she had no information on what is covered/not OR what brand names coincide with generic names, and told me to return in another, SEPARATE appointment to ask for prescriptions since she "had already spent too much time with me"—(it had been 17 minutes total). Simultaneously, I had asked for all STD/STI screening. When we finished, I attempted to confirm HIV test was included and her response was, "No, that's not usual to test for and is not included in a standard screening." Really? Isnt that the big one? This is 2017 and the lack of knowlege and professionalism was terrifying. I do not recommend.

Dr. Lee has so many available appointments that it's easy to book for the day of, if not the time of. She listens to all your concerns and tries to give the best and most financially efficient ways to manage the issue. There is a little bit of wait-time but that's the trade off for availability.

Dr Lee was very nice and straightforward. She was very careful and made an unpleasant Annual Pap Smear necessity actually comfortable and not painful.
