Dr. Lee & his nurse both listened to all my concerns and were very helpful.

I have been coming to UPMC for over 20 years and have never had a bad experience with you. All my doctors and their staff have always been very supportive and caring, there is no place I would ever go or any of my family.

Dr. Lee gave me my life back. Don't lose him like you lost Dr. Kang, they can not be replaced.

Dr. Joon Lee is fantastic... he is so caring, very easy to understand, explains everything very clear and detailed... I told him that I'd love to do one of those UPMC commercials... "I didn't choose to have spinal stenosis, but I did choose Dr. Lee & UPMC"! I can not say enough good things about him... he is one UPMC should be extremely proud to have on their payroll! THANKS Dr. Lee!

Dr. Lee and his staff was very kind and helpful.

October 26, 2015

Everyone I encountered from the front desk staff to the x-ray staff to the doctors was very pleasant, and friendly. This was a 1 year follow up to surgery, so no actual new issues were present, but I did get good information on my progress and descriptions of what I should expect in the future.
