    I have entrusted my health care to Dr. Lee from Day 1. Not only does he communicate clearly all issues and treatment plans but he does it with compassion and genuine concern. He always listens. He remembers most everything of what was discussed during the prior visit. His response time is 100%. The surgery went very well. He checked on my condition every now and then ... during recovery ... and twice in my room on the same day. He and his staff are great. They are very friendly, courteous and always made me feel welcome.

    Dr. Lee has very good "bedside" manners. He is very courteous and looks at you straight in the eye when speaking. He never interrupted my train of thought. I felt real concern as he was going through treatment options with me. God bless his heart!
