Specialties

Dr. Denis Mee-Lee has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Dr Mee Lee is a very caring and most understanding Dr. I was very anxious about running out of my meds, but he calmly helped me. Outstanding bedside manners1 I will recommend him to everyone that I come in contact with! His receptionist is just as great as he is. SO VERY HELPFUL AND FRIENDLY! I will never change my doctor - EVER.

Very Disappointed

Does not come up with treatment plans. Prescribes drugs that interact with other drugs he's prescribed. Absentmindedly listens but does not come up with actions to solve problems. Could not get ahold of receptionist. Receptionist would not return calls for refills on prescriptions when needed which would obviously cause withdrawal symptoms. Could not get ahold of staff to make an appointment. Dr. comes in late into office a lot. This last time was over an hour late. Staff is apathetic. Have to pay for parking. Parking costs more with the over an hour of wait time. Dr. goes on vacation a lot for long periods of time. Does not have back up Dr. to get ahold of when he's gone. An unpleasant experience overall. I've had other psychiatrists and the experience was very pleasant. The only reason I had to switch was they didn't take my insurance any more, or I needed to try someone for different treatment options. I'm very disappointed as I was told he is well known in the community for speaking engagements. Perhaps he's not so good with his patient engagement commitments.

Two Stars

Although he was nice enough and seemed to want to help, he didn't try to get to know me and I felt like he didn't really care about my problem. His staff was super-nice and very helpful and professional, but I wish he better advice. I felt I was put on medication that didn't really help.
