Dr Joon Lee is well respected not only by his office staff & physical therapy offices, but by the hospital staff in Montefiore Hospital. I had some concerns going in for my third back surgery to which Dr Lee had done neither. So, after asking around & having someone close to the surgery unit, I was VERY confident going in with Dr. Lee. He is truly beloved, is an excellent surgeon and I feel very blessed to be with him for my medical needs. When he speaks with me, he shows great respect, concern & answers my questions thoroughly in a way I can understand. I just love him & will refer all friends & family to him if they need a back surgeon! Your hospital administration must insure that this man is well taken care of! He is a real asset to your business!!!

As usual, the entire staff was friendly, helpful and professional.

They listened to all my concerns, and answered my questions.

October 24, 2016

In my opinion, Dr. Lee is an excellent diagnostician and orthopedic surgeon. I had been suffering with spinal related pain in my left buttocks and leg for almost a year. The procedure he performed on me provided total relief from my previous symptoms. He has a very easy manner about him and listens carefully when you talk to him. If I EVER need to see a physician again for this type of problem, I hope Dr. Lee is still practicing. He is a great asset to your group of skilled physicians.

Dr. Lee and his staff are wonderful! I have no complaints at all.
