Best Surgical Experience

Having had colon surgery 30 years ago, I was looking for a surgeon that was able to perform laparoscopic surgery for my current colon cancer. Dr. Lee described his procedure in great detail and followed through with a successful and flawless surgical procedure. My recovery time in the hospital was minimal and I returned to a normal lifestyle in about two weeks. Dr. Lee's staff and the quality hospital experience were the best ever. I am grateful for Dr. Lee's skill, knowledge, and experience. It certainly worked for me.

Five Stars

After two years and several doctors, we were fortunate to have been able to meet with an amazing team of doctors including Dr. Sang Lee. We left our home which was 500 miles away to meet with Dr. Lee after doctors had told us that the only option my 12 year old daughter had was to has a complete removal of her rectum. After a total of 10 minutes in Dr. Lee's office, he offered us an option that would require an out-patient surgery with a 3-5 day recuperation period. I don't know that I've ever been as happy in my life. The procedure was a success and has given my daughter her life back. Dr. Lee was professional, accommodating, informative and kind. I would very strongly recommend this surgeon! My understanding is that he has left New York Presbyterian Hospital. I am hoping that I will be able to track him down in the event that my daughter (or anyone else) might need him again in the future.

Outstanding surgeon addressed my problem

Dr. Lee is not the most personable guy, but he is an outstanding colorectal surgeon and exceeded my expectations vastly. I went to him for what was both a discomfort and a cosmetic issue in a sensitive location. It was bothersome and difficult to keep clean. His work was flawless. The area feels, functions and appears like new. I can't believe how good the result was - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Lee to anyone considering a colorectal procedure.

Colon Surgery

Dr Lee spend quite a bit of time with me and answered all questions thoroughly. He recommend a procedure that was less invasive and the surgery was very successful. I would highly recommend. He is on the quiet side at times but always attentive.
