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.

Dr. Lee was very thorough in his explanation of my condition and put in terms that were quite easy to understand.

April 25, 2016

Every experience I have had with Dr. Lee has been very positive. As a patient, i could not ask for a more qualified, knowledgeable and courteous doctor. UPMC should be grateful for Dr. Lee's participation in its healthcare system.
