Dr. Wendy W Lee has the following 2 specialties
A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.
- 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.

Office staff rude and unhelpful. Took months to contact me for appointment after my primary MD sent referral. Told me they did not accept my insurance even though found out later they did after taking $250.00 out of my pocket and took forever to get returned. The whole office staff needs a class in service line provider care when insurance reimburse now depending on ratings. I would suggest a entire office staff overhaul and start fresh just keep the MD's. The office staff clearly does not care to make money for payroll and has no empathy for patients. This is not a general practice office so patients that come here are sick and scared. The entire staff should learn compassion also. Worse Dr officeI have been to sent sat at the health department in nursing school. G
I have Medicare and a supplement. Have yet to pay anything at all at a visit. My insurance even pays my deductible, part A and Part B. I went to Dr. Lee, she ordered testing and told me she needed a check for $300. I asked why as I have never paid anything and they assured me that this is what happens when you get 'specialty testing'...what? I sat in her office on the first visit for almost three hours, no exaggeration. I thought because it was the first visit they were taking longer (however, they weren't with me, I was sitting in a chair). The second visit was worse and I actually walked out. I wish I had taken my $300 with me or, at least, reported them. They did nothing for my condition, nothing for me and I changed Drs immediately. I would NEVER recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Lee is one of the finest, smartest and compassionate doctors I have had the fortune to have in my life. Dr. Tim Hunter recommended her to me 10 years ago. She has treated my fibromyalgia, arthritis and the stress related to the problems in connection to these diseases. She has seen me at my worst and had made me my best. Thank you Dr. Lee.
