I had almost a thousand DR visits in 15 years. I was concerned I might never find someone who could help me. Dr Lee took the time to figure ME out and instead of al the others who had blown me off and He was able to make an informed, well thought out diagnonsis and put me on the path to recovery. I can't ever thank him enough.
Hands down this Doctor is Mind Blowing and Amazing! Hands down this Doctor is Mind Blowing - Amazing!!! His bed-side manner is superb; friendly, compassionate. His training, expertise and experience are exceptional. Dr. Lee takes the time to truly listen and then executes a plan facilitating other top docs (usually within the Swedish Team) to not only diagnose you but to aid you in realizing a healthy life style. Dr. Lee is both a professional ally and friend. I see him at least once a month now for over 2 years. I have been living with a complicated auto-immune challenge and spine injury for many long years. I myself live within many personal challenges. Dr. Lee works within my limitations and always exceeds my expectations. Over the last 15 years; Because many of my symptoms often are misleading and cross over; it has been a long hard rode with many doctor visits UNTIL Dr. Lee - who has been the essential and refreshing catalyst in aiding me to find the correct referrals & successfully negotiate a plan of attack. His entire team of doctors at Swedish are simply amazing! Thank you. <3
Dr. Gerald Lee is the finest physician I have ever had in my life. I have a very rare and painful disease and he helps me to do the right things to cope with my disease. As a PHD he has the advantage of a higher education and is an extremely intelligent man with I am certain a very high IQ. He can just look at you or talk for five minutes and know what is wrong and how to deal with it and how he can help you to deal with it. He has helped me so much in the past fives I cannot imagine having another doctor. He will be out of time for a long time he said so I guess I will have to one, but the minute Dr. Lee returns I will be the first one banging on his door. He even picked up on a rare disease and the fact that I have Bi-Polar disease (mild-but has affected my life negatively forever. Now my countenance is happier, my pain load less (not just because of medications, but many other recommendations as well. Such as pool therapy, physical therapy, home physical therapy, acupuncture... He is the best if you can get and appointment you will be very lucky.
