Dr. Lee was amazing. I had a previous endocrinologist and she was my star doc; up until she moved that is. You can say I am a little spoiled with having had a professional who was so invested so, yes, I was worried about being able to find the same quality in someone new. Well, I got lucky yet again. Dr. Lee is very prompt, vocal, loves to explain whats going on so the patient can understand and is overall communicative. I explained my history to Dr. Lee and I have a few issues, nothing big, but we took our time and she worked with me, told me what I may or may not need. Gave me options, as the patient. Was extremely clear. I feel like I found someone who is really caring. There is just no other way to say it. I can't wait to see her again.

My appointment with Dr. Lee was as pleasant as it was informative. After being somewhat uniformed on my hypothyroidism, I gained a much better understanding of thyroid function/hormone balance, different medications for treatment, symptoms of overmedicating/under medicating, and what steps to take to correct it. She also explained why some treatments (i.e. NDT) may not be as reliable. Really glad I saw Dr. Lee. There was a downside, though. For some reason the office was unable to access the information that I spent all that time filling out on ZocDoc (emergency contact, medical history, etc.) so I had to go through all of that in the office, which was a little annoying.

Dr. Lee really explains things well, listens, and knows her specialty very well. She is one of the nicest Doctors I've meet. Professional, but down to earth and easy to talk to. Not a pill pusher, truly wants to get down to the root of the problem. I highly recommend Dr. Lee. The office can get a bit busy, the desk staff seem a bit overworked, but gave it their best effort to be polite. Set up your next appointment in person if possible, dealings on the phone require time and patients.

The doctor was very helpful and personable and she took her time answering my questions. I enjoyed my visit with her. The receptionists were also very efficient. My only caution would be to not visit this office if you might need blood work because they don't do it on site; rather they make you walk about seven blocks to a Quest Diagnostics facility where you will then be seen as a "walk-in."

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Lee--she was very thorough and patient, and at no point did I feel rushed. She listened to me, explained everything she was doing and why she was doing it. Between appointments I had a non-urgent question, and I emailed her through the practice's patient portal and she responded the next day. Am relieved to have found a good doctor so close to home, after a few false starts.

I am a medical student, which probably makes me an annoying patient, but Dr. Lee is the kind a doctor we all hope to have. Easy to talk to. Alows you to state your concerns and adresses them immediately to the best of her abilities. I have never felt so comfortable with another physician after just 1 visit. I am extremely happy that I found an endocrinologist that is so knowledgeable about her field and able apply her knowledge to patient interactions. A+ in my book
