    How was your appointment with Dr. Lee?

    May 15, 2024
    After 4 appointments with another ENT group that was not capable of diagnosing and resolving my problem, I wa referred to Dr. Lee. Dr. Lee spent time going over my recent ear infection issues and the meds I had been prescribed by another doctor. He then performed a thorough exam and explained what he was doing and what he was seeing. He answered all questions that I had. After a few appointments, my infection is resolved. Dr. Lee is business-like, yet personable. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Lee for any ENT related issues
