No problems whatsoever!

July 01, 2016

only negative was that we waited over an hour past the appt. time for X-ray, then waited another 40 minutes to see Dr. Lee. Was not pleased given that I has just had back surgery.

June 13, 2016

Dr. Lee is the best, a really cool guy and knows his stuff. I've recommended him many times to people with back problems

June 13, 2016

Dr. Lee was very helpful in explaining different ways to go about resolving my situation

June 13, 2016

I HAD FELT MUCH LIKE I KNEW DR LEE FOR A LONG TIME. HE DID NOT RUSH ME OUT OF HIS OFFICE BUT SPEND TIME LISENING TO ME, THIS IS VERY IMPORTAINT TO ME.

June 03, 2016

Dr. Joon Lee was recommended to me by a friend who trained in Pittsburgh for ortho surgery. Dr. Lee is who he would send his family to, so I knew he would be good. After meeting with Dr. Lee over 3 appointments for my herniated disc I must say he is one of the best physicians I have ever met. He answered all of my questions, took my concerns seriously, and was able to clearly communicate his expertise in a way that I could understand. He did not push me to make a decision, but has allowed me time to weigh the pros and cons of surgery. I can't recommend him enough and I am so grateful to have him as my surgeon.

May 23, 2016

Dr I explained about all the procedures that will be done during the surgery

May 23, 2016

very impressed with his knowledge and I thank him for that.

May 20, 2016

Dr. Lee and his fellow/resident were both wonderful.

May 16, 2016

I love Dr. Lee...I have Highmark Insurance and I am so afraid of not being able to see him.
