Dr. Douglas A Lee has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • 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.

Think twice

After several years of being followed by Dr Lee I am looking for a new physician. Following a procedure I was in excruciating pain and after several phone calls was unable to get a hold of his nurse . Finally my general practitioner was able to prescribe me with the correct medication for my diagnosis and discontinue the meds Dr. Lee prescribed. I month later and I am still rehabilitating from the procedure. If you can't get a hold of the doctor or nurse when there is a complication what good are they?

The man is too busy!

First appointment took almost a month just to talk to him. Next step was to have some testing done, they said his next available appointment would be in 2 months,Meanwhile I suffered. Turned out he was on vacation. All my test came back great, but still had and have the pain. He tried to give me some medication....that didn't do anything. Now I'm too the point where am in serious trouble, everything I eat causes me problems, like a form of autoimmune disease. Been calling for days, nurses just say he isn't here but we will get back to you when he gets back to us. This is the first gastro doctor I have ever been too, but based on my experience, LOOK SOMEWHERE ELSE!

Dr. Lee is a very caring Dr. who gives you the attention you need if you let him know you have questions. He can appear to be in a hurry but any time I have had questions he sat down and took time to explain everything I asked . I have recommended him to at least 5 friends and they all have loved him!
