      I hate to see such a wonderful physician leave. At least he will be teaching new physicians and passing on his great attention to his patients.

      Dr. Lee was friendly and concerned, but he did not take the time to get the whole picture from his PA before diagnosing and prescribing a drug for me. I am still unsure of the diagnosis, and may seek a second opinion.

      Dr. Lee is by far the most knowledgeable, caring and thorough physician I have ever seen regarding my rare condition. He spent almost an hour with myself and husband. I was very impressed how he included my husband In his explanation of how intricate my condition worked. I will wholeheartedly recommend and refer patients to Dr. Lee. I feel very fortunate to have found someone with his level of expertise and care. It's truly unparalleled in the healthcare industry. He deserves a Lamborghini as a bonus this year! :-)
