Dr. John Lee has the following 2 specialties
- Diagnostic Radiology
Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.
A radiologist is a physician who specializes in the use of medical imaging to diagnose and treat illnesses or injuries in patients.
The different types of medical imaging are X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.
Radiologists are experts in these different types of tests and can advise a primary care doctor on which test is most appropriate in a specific case. These doctors also assist primary care doctors in analyzing the images produced by these tests in order to determine next steps necessary for treatment.

I’ve wanted upper blepharoplasty since I was a teenager, my small Asian eyes looked so small and make up was hardly noticeable on my eyes due to my heavy eyelids. At 52, I finally decided to have the procedure since my eyelids were getting even heavier with age. I consulted a surgeon in my area but they recommended I see a surgeon who specialized in Asian eyes so I found Dr. Lee and thoroughly researched his credentials and patient reviews. I flew to Pennsylvania for the consult after exchanging a few emails and pictures. It’s been 8 weeks since the procedure and I only wish I had done it sooner. Dr. Lee and his staff were very caring and professional. I did not feel any pain afterwards and kept in touch with Dr. Lee throughout my healing process. I cannot express enough how grateful I am to Dr. Lee and how happy I am with my eyelids! My eyes appear bigger and brighter and most important, they look natural.
I would like to thank Dr. Lee and his staff for the excellent care and service they provided for my upper lid surgery. I have been arguing with constant swelling and puffiness since I was a teenager. Too much salt, high humidity, I slept wrong or just because they felt like swelling...it's been a constant battle. Makeup didn't help. Ice packs slightly helped but who has time to do that every morning? I hated taking pictures. My eyes always looked puffy and swollen even on the best day. With age, that puffiness just made me feel constantly tired. It also stretched the skin and created a crease on my forehead from accommodating the extra weight. You wouldn't think something so small could make such an impact but believe me when I say how detrimental something so minuscule can be to your self perception and even the perception others have about you. Your eyes are an extremely important part of your first impression. The girls in the office was very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. Dr. Lee makes you feel at ease. His skills are superior. I made sure I did my research before I decided on a surgeon who was going to be modifying anything on my face. He has a strong resume. He specializes in this field. That was important to me. I wanted someone who does one thing really well. For me, the surgery itself was quick and painless. Follow up and recovery went very well. I went back in ten days for suture removal. Still somewhat swollen, I just kept my bangs long so I didn't have to wear sunglasses so often. At the one month mark, I was pretty much back to normal. Very slight swelling but nothing noticeable to the untrained eye. My eyes feel more open, not so heavy. I can wear make up now and it actually looks good because I finally have eyelids. Thank you again to Dr. Lee and his staff for your excellent care.
At 33 years of age, I had never been to an eye doctor to have my eyes checked. When I finally decided to do this, I asked the doctor about my hooded eyelids. She said, âWhatever you do, donât go to a plastic surgeon for this, go to an ophthalmologist,â and she recommended Dr. Lee. When I went in for my consultation, I was immediately impressed. I felt very comfortable and âat homeâ in the office. Everyone was welcoming and cheerful. Dr. Lee and his staff were also knowledgeable and informative, answering all of my questions and responding to any of my concerns. Needless to say, I choose Dr. Lee for my upper eyelid surgery. Basically, he was going to remove the extra skin on my eyelids to make my face appear brighter and more youthful. After scheduling my appointment, I was told what prescriptions I needed to fill beforehand, Tylenol with Codeine, (which I ended up not filling because I never liked taking it in the past. He said Extra Strength Tylenol would be fine) and an antibiotic ointment. When I came in for my surgery, they gave me two additional pills to help ease anxiety and help me relax. The surgery was over before I knew it. I felt like I was in a light sleep the entire time and didnât feel a thing. I also had Kybella done that day as well, right when he finished my eyelid surgery. Once home, I slept and rested for the rest of the day and the next day. I had to apply ice every hour, 20 minutes for each eye. I also applied the appointment morning and night. I went back to work after 5 days, but there was still some swelling at that time. After 9 days, I returned to the office to remove the sutures. This was one of the strangest feelings, but I was happy to have them removed. At that appointment, I was told to switch to a warm compress instead of ice. I had 2 more follow up appointments to make sure everything was healing and progressing as it should. I am currently using SkinMedica to help reduce the redness as well. I couldnât be happier with the results! I feel less self-conscience about my profile, and I feel confident when I am not wearing eye make-up. Throughout the entire process, I have felt that I could call the office at any time with questions, and was confident I would hear a pleasant voice on the other end. I will continue to work with Dr. Lee and his staff for any future needs!
