Dr. Lisa D Yee has the following 2 specialties
- Surgical Oncology
Surgical oncologists play various roles in treating cancer. They can perform biopsies to determine if a tumor is cancerous or not. If it is, they’re trained to remove the tumor, tissue, and in some cases, all or part of an organ or bodily structure where the cancer has spread. In addition to removing cancer, they can perform any reconstructive surgeries that may be necessary.
Many surgical oncologists specialize in certain types of cancer, such as liver, lung or breast. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they have the most experience treating. When looking for a doctor, it’s important to know that general surgeons are also qualified to perform many of the same surgeries. However, surgical oncologists have specific training in recognizing and treating cancer, which some patients prefer.

Dr. Yee , Is the greatest Dr. on earth, as far as I'm concerned, she found my cancer once in 2009, next 2017 her last day before she moved, I wouldn't be here today if it weren't for her. I wish now I would of followed her when she moved , and got my check ups from her. Sincerely Jan Houser-Golliday
Made me feel comfortable from the first consultation. The operation was flawless and she went out of her way to ensure I was doing fine afterwards, for months afterwards. I've called her literally dozens of times before and after and she has always found time to talk to me or if she was busy she called me back when she said she would. I have recommended her to friends and relatives and they have had the same experience.
