Dr . Lee was very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. Was honest in explaining that I might still have some pain after surgery but it would be reduced.

All good experiences.

I really liked provider's expertise, respect for me, calming manner.

February 26, 2016

I needed time to thoroughly discuss my neck and shoulder pain. I was given plenty of time to go over my situation and concerns. I was not hurried. I initially spent a lot of time talking to Dr. Lee's fellow. A really helpful appointment. Good people all around.

February 15, 2016

Dr Lee was extremely informative, I felt very comfortable with his expertise and advice.

February 08, 2016

Dr. Lee is a fantastic doctor who takes care and is interested in your problem.

February 01, 2016

Dr. Lee is wonderful. He is very knowledgeable and spends all the the time you need at ask questions etc. I saw numerous doctors after seeing this doctor but returned to him when ready for surgery. I believe his ability to successfully see me through a very complex spinal surgery will far exceed any of the other surgeons I saw. I have a spinal deformity and need complex cervical fusion surgery. IDr. Lee has made me feel very comfortable about his ability to successfully perform this surgery.

January 22, 2016

Very good. I'm sure Dr. Lee is very busy he did stay focused on me and my visit. I felt he cared and was not in a hurry to get to next patient

January 04, 2016

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