  • 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.

Be Careful

Very nice man, very nice indeed. However, his staff doesn't speak English. His office looks like an episode of hoarders. He didn't spend any time with me. The lab looks like a drug clinic. He didn't follow up with my bloodwork, echo, or sleep test. Overall, nice guy,but this is my health and I need someone who has a little more control over his office and who actually cares.

a friend, but truth is...

I'm a lifelong friend of Dr. Lee's, which is the only reason I've stayed with him. I find his office staff is more robotic than human like. Waiting time is often more than 2 hours. Often the waiting room is so full, people are waiting in the hallway. This may be because after 25 years, he still won't stop accepting new patients. Also, I find Dr. Lee's knowledge of medicine leaves plenty of room for desire. He is my PCP and I haven't been able to see him for more than a year, they always make me see another temporary doctor in his office.
