Specialties

Dr. Don W Lee has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Open hart valve transplant

Well distinguished, top surgeons that would be impossible to consult, nevertheless, have a procedure performed ! It just took a phone call from Dr. Don Lee, for them to clear their schedules, and further, they even called after us after hours, even drove back to their office to see us after completing surgery , and they schedule a surgery, promptly. That teals me how influential he is!!! My mom almost die if the surgery was delay, according to the condition of her valve. Thank you Dr.Roberts by bestowing calmness and confidence to my mom. My deepest honor and gratitude for knowing him and having him as our cardiologist.

Unfriendly staff etc

Staff are ignorant, they contradicting what they are saying. If you asked them about something, they make you feel like an idiot! I think patient knows everything and patient doesn't have the right to ask questions if you seem you dont understand the procedure. The doctor is ok, but as what the other person say's this doctor will not stay with you to fully explained what is needed. It's only a business not patient care.

This doctor is just a businessmen, has no consideration for his patients and you can't get a simple question answered over the phone even if you have been his patient for years. I don't recommend him at all.
