Dr Lee came highly recommended and I would also highly recommend him.
I am totally satisfied with the experience I had with Dr. Lee and his associates. I had been scheduled for a large, very invasive surgery with another surgeon. Thanks to Dr. Lee I didn't need the surgery and was able to recover through physical therapy. He answered all questions and was very pleasant to speak with as were the rest of the staff. I would definitely recommend him to anyone dealing with spinal problems.
