      It is not Dr. Daniel Lee's fault, but he had not recieved my forms and was under the impression I was there for an unrelated problem that I don't even have. We were not able to discuss anything and had to reschedule. I am dissappointed that UK has wasted his and my time by not being organized or prepared.

      Dr. Daniel Lee is the most caring,compassionate, and intelligent doctor I have ever met. He is so caring and reassuring and they don't teach that in medical school. UK Health is so very lucky to have Dr. Lee.
