Specialties

Dr. Richard T Lee Jr has the following 4 specialties

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

  • Hematology

    A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
    Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
    Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.

  • Hematology & Oncology
  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Thankful!

So very thankful for a physician that would sit with my family and tell us the truth. We had heard the news from another Doctor, but Dr. Lee was the one person who promised to walk the journey with us. He went above and beyond what he was called to do to treat my family. He treated my husband and mother and I would recommend him to anyone. His compassion for his patients is remarkable. It takes a strong person to do what any oncologist does every day. He gave us hope, time and most important support during a very difficult time. Thankful God put him in our life.

Two Stars

Dr Lee was insensitive and arrogant in dealing with my family member's cancer! Instead of considering her mental well being he was blunt and took every ounce of hope from her. He came off as arrogant and egotistical. We found her a new doctor, one with oncology expertise as well as compassion and kindness. I wouldn't recommend this doctor for those reasons. Look elsewhere. You'll be glad you did.

He certainly dosen't consider how important that mental wellness plays in dealing with a decease such cancer is.

he shouldn't tell patients that need every ounce of hope that they can muster up about other patients that didn't live but a few months thats very calis and cold plenty of patients do survive cancer of all types, and thats what patients need to hear. when I left his office with my mother I thought whats the use in even getting her treated,he has a very cold dementer. I have learned tht half the healing with cancer is mental and Dr. Lee needs definantly needs to focus on that more.

not impressed

I was not pleased with Dr. Lee at all. He tells you one thing and then does the complete opposite.
