I have been a patient of Dr. Lee's for nearly 10 years and there is no other doctor I trust more to treat me. Dr. Lee is thorough with his exams and takes his time answering questions when necessary.

I went into Dr. Lee's office with a terrible cough. I was asked a couple of questions, had my vital taken, and he checked my breathing. He immediately assumed it was due to my allergies. I had assured him that myallergies are never this severe and that I was on allergy medicine. He insisted I take prescription allergy medicine and some generic prescription cough medicine. I went to an urgent care the following day and was told I had pneumonia. This was a terrible experience and would not recommend.

I have a day into his diagnostic today with meds he gave me. I aint a Doc so I cant say much but I am me for quite a few years, still in pain... As a professional in determining / solvingcomplex issues.. The Doc was too quick to come to conclusion. If I am wrong with his diagnostic, I will add comments reflecting such..

This guy obviously overbooks patients. I've been there 4 times and every time my wait has been at least 1 hour. They try schedule as many visits as they can to get you r money. They schedule visits just to tellthe results of blood test - things that you really don't need meet him for so they can charge for the visit.

Nice guy and very thorough. The wait was actually a little longer than right away but I don't want to tarnish the 5 stars I want to give him. Just understand that this is healthcare and waits just can't be avoided.I'm glad I found Dr. Lee and I hope to continue with him as my provider. The office is clean and I definitely recommend him.

He's really nice and obviously really busy. He's one of the few doctors in this area open late, so I could imagine a lot of people coming to him. His reception and office team were really polite and accommodating. Would go again (but hopefully won't need to!)

The doc was respectful and thorough - I recommend the doc. But the wait time is excruciating- 40 mins in the wait area, and another 15 mins after initial questioning by the nurse. An hour of wait time - that's with an appointment.

I just went there for a referral. So I can't say much. But my husband is fully satisfied with Dr. Lee. He treated him twice and the diagnosis was correct!!! He showed his condition on the picture on his computer andanswered all my husband's questions. The only complaint is a long-long wait!

Wait time was a little rough, because there are a lot of patients. The doctor is very knowledgeable and very professional. Overall good experience, only if the waiting time between my scheduled time and the time I actually got into a patient room was reduced.

The doctor was good, but I was surprised about the long wait (45 minutes before being called in and then another 15 before the doctor actually saw me). I signed up for the ZocDoc appointment that morning and it appeared thatall appointments for a number of hours around my appointment time were open. Yet, there were a bunch of people in the waiting room when I arrived and everyone had checked off "yes appointment" on the sign in sheet. It is possible that they called that morning for last minute appointments. But, either way, I was disappointed at the wait.

My first visit and I was very impressed. The staff was friendly, fast and very professional. When I saw Dr. Lee I was most impressed by the fact he wasn't trying to rush you out to get to the next patient.He spent time listening to history, asking questions and showed great concern for the reason for my visit and my overall health in general. Overall I was very satisfied.

Pretty knowledgeable primary care physician but when he found out that I was a health care professional, trained in ambulatory care medicine, he was pretty condescending. I really hoped that we would be able to talk about my health as aclinical team would but he wasn't receptive to the idea. Overall though, thorough primary care physician.

I have been seeing Dr Lee for almost two years. He is always patient and flexible; offering "old fashion" medical care. Often he looks for alternatives and cares to ensure that you are feeling well or getting better. He calls youpersonally to provide lab results. This is much appreciated. His staff is always attentive and professional.

I arrived like 15 minutes late, so I can't complain about the waiting time. He did what most doctors do for a yearly physical and told me he would contact me regarding my labwork as soon as it was available. Ihave had other doctors who may have been a bit more thorough but it's a simple yearly physical and I'm pretty young.

I think there was a rush of appoinents so my wait was about 45 minutes but they had called me earlier to let me know it would be about that long before I would see the doctor.

I liked him but didn't love him. He was nice enough, but maybe a bit reserved, and I think I like a doctor who is really forthcoming and friendly, and goes out of his way to explain a lot of thingsand answer my questions thoroughly. There was nothing wrong with him, just didn't necessarily jibe. Also, after I made an appointment (it was a same day appt bc it was an emergency) his staff called me and told me that the availability was an error. Eventually they accommodated me and let me go RIGHT THAT MOMENT, but they seemed a little bit annoyed about it and weren't the friendliest (the office was closing early that day so I guess they weren't too happy about having to stay late). Otherwise it was okay. It wasn't a bad experience, but I think I like a more coddling by a primary care physician's office.

I went to see Dr. Lee for a cough. I was seen promptly and he prescribed me a Z-Pack. Unfortunately I had a major allergic reaction to the antibiotic. I tried calling the office to see the doctor, but the receptionistwas not helpful and said all his appointment was booked and that the office is closed the next day (even after I told her I'm having a major reaction to the medicine). I ended up going to the ER to get checked out.

Had my annual physical with him. He was not very thorough and he only saw me for about 5 minutes. I explained to him that I was concerned about a lump I found and he did not examine it. Additionally, Ihad to wait about 45 minutes to be seen.

Pretty good. It may be because of the demographic of the area, but the physicals are very superficial and despite being newlywed, he did not ask about birth control or do a pelvic exam. At this visit he treated me quicklywith prescription medication but did not perform a diagnostic test to confirm--but I didn't mind since the medication worked!
