I highly recommend Dr. Lee. He is amazing - so qualified, caring. My results are so good - off the charts!

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

I like that the doctor and PA remember me by name.

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

Dr. Lee was very good at initial surgery (very skilled) but I went with his recommended 2nd opinion for finishing surgery. Dr. Nguyen seems to listen more to the fine details. I appreciate that Dr. Lee would recommend someone else (not ego driven).
