    How was your appointment with Dr. Lee?

    Oct 29, 2022
    My husband had a screening colonoscopy with Dr. Lee. During the pre-procedure visit, Dr. Lee took time and explained what causes colon cancer and how colonoscopy works. He answered all our questions. We have no issues to understand him. The screening colonoscopy procedure went well. Dr. Lee's team is very professional and is very nice. Their charge for the screening colonoscopy is very competitive and reasonable. It is true that they are a little hard to reach by phone. We had luck calling them in the afternoon.
