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.

was good

October 12, 2015

I felt comfortable with Dr. Lee. He listened and answered my questions

October 09, 2015

Outstanding surgeon who operated on me to reconstruct my cervical spine because of near-critical cord compression. He is extremely personable, has a great bedside manner, and was astonishingly responsive to questions before and immediately after surgery 3 months ago. He is the reason I am walking and am almost completely pain free after almost 3 years of progressively increasing agony from cord compression. I am truly grateful to have been blessed with the good judgement to select Dr Lee to perform my surgery.

October 05, 2015

I met Dr. Lee when I was in the hospital for my surgery in February. Dr. Kang did my back surgery. Dr. Lee and Dr. Kang have been fantastic and took excellent care of me. I have appreciated all the care given by UPMC.

October 02, 2015

I am very pleased with this provider. He brought me through a very serious injury

September 11, 2015

It is a pleasure to visit Dr. Lee, he is an outstanding person and a great Doctor.

September 11, 2015

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.
