My first visit with Dr Lee because Dr Kang left the practice and I found him very friendly and profess. I will refer him to other people in Erie.

Dr Lee and Amanda (P.A.) have always been attentive to my concerns regarding the continued treatment of my injury. They and the other office personnel have been very helpful in handling the necessary paperwork needed for the DOL/OWCP.

dr Lee put me at ease. I didn't bring my current Mri but he was able to look at a previous one and explain my problem. when I brought the latest one to the office he called me himself and explained the difference and what he recommended. I like his confidence and relaxed manner.

Dr Joon is an excellent doctor who took as much time as we needed to understand my problem and make decisions.

I had been a patient of Dr. James Kang for years - when I called to make an appointment and was told he left UPMC I was very up-set as doctor Kang had done many of my spine surgeries. I was told that Dr. Lee was seeing some of his patients. Going to this appointment I was very unsure, but I have to say Dr. Lee was great. He took his time with me, went over all my MRI (previous and past) and told me the treatment he thought I would need. He repected my questions to him, answer them in a way that I understood. Did not rush me was very understanding. I would recommend Dr. Lee to family in friends.
