Dr. Robert T Lee has the following 1 specialty
An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Won't to warn others of this doctor. The worst of bedside manners. Will not spend time to even answer questions. Speaks thru his staff. Has no patience with his patients. His staff are on edge because of his militant style. Went for a surgery and very little explanation of what he was doing. He is always more concerned of trying to get out of the room then the patient in the room. Avoid this doctor.
Like another reviewer, I had to FIRE Bob as well. I was forced to go to Bob because he was the only Retina specialist in town taking new patients. I had just left my Optometrist who encouraged me to act on this problem today. He had called and the best apt he could get for me was 10 days from today. When I was told again today, in person, by his not so helpful staff, they could not improve on that time frame. I pushed some more and "The Nurse" got involved, while I called my previous eye profession office, Great Lakes Eyecare and they not only had a new Mayo clinic trained Retina specialist on Staff, they set me up with an appointment the very next day. When I walked back in and talked to the nurse, she said the doctor was really booked today but could see me later this week. If the receptionist had an understanding and empathy of what it's like to have Wet AMD in one eye and then have the same symptoms show on your good eye, perhaps she would have worked me in his busy schedule, as the nurse had offered. Instead, I asked the nurse to forward my files to Great Lakes Eyecare.
I like Doctor Lee but have 'FIRED' him based on his decision to use old technology in his practice. Optical Coherence Tomography is a diagnostic technique that renders cross sectional views of the retina. There are 2 types of technology (1) time domain systems - uses 400 scans / second using 6 radial slices oriented 30 degrees apart; (2) spectral domain technology - scans 20,000 to 40,000 scans / second. Because of the higher scan rate with the 'higher resolution technology' it diminishes the likelihood of motion artifact, enhances the resolution and decreases the chance of missing lesions. Dr. Lee uses the old technology and has no immediate plans to upgrade (according to his technician). So, if you have concerns with bleeding in your eye, his technology is less apt to identify a problem before it occurs. if you don't beleive me, read about optical coherence technology on the internet.
Unbelievably long wait times both at office and in hospital, and then when you FINALLY get to see the doctor he spends the bare minimum time actually talking with you, always seems to want to run out of the room as quickly as possible. Mumbles into his dictaphone and tells you next to nothing about his findings, explains NOTHING and expects you to accept his "verdict" without questioning anything. Relies upon his staff to answer patient questions; luckily they're actually quite friendly - but during a single office visit we got 3 completely different answers about post-operative care and restrictions. His surgical skills may be fine (don't know the final outcome in my own case) but his bedside manner is nonexistent. Either he is seriously overworked or he simply does not like interacting with people... I've never met a doctor who was LESS interested in his patients, a most unfortunate experience overall.
