My mom has some emergency eye problem. We couldn't not find any doctor would even look at her because she's only here for a visit without insurance. (I couldn't afford to go to ER.) Dr. Lee agreed to look at my mom and ended up spending a couple hours with her because the seriousness of her condition. Then followed up with four more appointments with the total cost stil less than one ER visit. If Dr. Lee hasn't checked my mom then, she could have had serious eye consequence by now. She's back to normal and very happy with her experience with Dr. Lee.
