Professional - Start to Finish

Everything from the very first call for an appointment to the post surgery visit was the best possible experience I could have asked for. I could go on and on but to be brief: Dr. Lee and his entire staff were warm, friendly, and knowledgeable. Every question and concern I had was answered promptly and professionally.

Excellent Doctor

My experience with Dr. Lee and his team was great. The procedure went exactly how he described it would go. Whenever I had questions or concerns, Dr. Lee and his team was quick and responsive in following up with me and providing accurate information. I highly recommend Dr. Lee for anyone looking for a surgeon to perform a parathyroidectomy.

In The Best Of Hands

I choose Dr. Lee because he is a highly experienced surgeon, with impressive professional & educational credentials. He calmly explained the partial thyroidectomy surgery I faced and answered my questions/concerns. I had total confidence in this Dr. & his surgical abilities, which helped ease my fears concerning my prognosis. I realized I was in the best of hands. This review must mention the extraordinary care I received post-op at Colombia; the nurses were superlative.
