Great Doctor & Staff

I broke my hand snowboarding, and required surgery to reset the bone. Dr. Lee was easy to deal with, to the point, and seemingly spot on in his diagnosis and treatment. The whole process (visits, surgery, recovery) was very clear cut and easy to manage. I strongly recommend Dr. Lee.

Wonderful Surgeon

I injured my wrist over 3 years ago and was seen by 5 different doctors an even had arthroscopic surgery which was unsuccessful. Thankfully, I found Dr. Lee who operated on me in November. He fixed my wrist and gave me my life back!!! I am grateful beyond words. It was a complicated surgery but very successful. Prior to the surgery, he carefully explained the problem to us in a way I could understand. He is an excellent surgeon and I highly recommend him.

Five Stars

Dr. Lee performed reconstructive surgery to repair a completely torn ligament in my wrist. Following his diagnosis, he very clearly set out all of my options with their respective pros/cons. He described in detail (multiple times) the different surgical options, including a relatively new procedure that he was on the forefront of developing and performing. He ended up using that new surgical procedure as I was a suitable candidate for it. Nine months later I was back to all of my normal athletic activities, and am now completely asymptomatic, pain-free and actually stronger. I couldn't recommend Dr. Lee more. Besides being an outstanding surgeon at the top of his field (the doctor I met with for a 2nd opinion actually knew Dr. Lee and told me I could not do better!), he takes his time to communicate thoroughly and clearly, is available to address any concerns and is a pleasure to deal with.

Steven K Lee

Dr Lee had his PA remove my stitches after my Ulnar Nerve Transposition. My incision was not closed. I questioned her and was told it would have to heal from inside. I spent a week bandageing my arm 6 times a day it because the four inch open incision would leak thru. My surgery had to be repeated. Now i have so much pain. Worse than ever.i can no longer use my right hand. I was a Master Automobile Tech now its only on paper. Now i cant work. Now i lost my job. Now i am waiting for a decision on SS Disability. And now my home is heading into forclosure. Thanks Dr Lee

Top notch

The best I can say is that each time I have visited Dr. Lee, always with simple problems, I have heard other patients praising him for dealing with complicated issues or for correcting problems that previous doctors didn't help.
