Dr. Lee did not take time to listen or understand my symptoms and problems. He was very dismissive simply because I am still able to work. Maybe he is too busy, overworked, or dealing w/other issues. I had to ask PCP for a different referral & I am contesting the bill from this visit.

The best.
I LOVE Dr. Lee. He is clearly smart, dedicated and extremely competent. I feel grateful to have had him as my doctor. That said, he just can't help himself when describing the issue by using terminology in a way that is difficult to follow. Not necessarily technical medical terms, but terms that I am not used to hearing in this context. I would recommend some effort by all doctors to remember that their patients - ok ME - well, we are idiots when it comes to this stuff. I need doctors to talk "gorilla" to me. I appreciate that this is a very precise field and the potential for the wrong message to be conveyed is high if not done precisely, but for the me the patient, I need explanations that are in simple terms. I was able to get the communication once I asked questions, which Dr. Lee did very well in answering those questions. I also appreciate the pre-Dr. Lee consult by the MD student. He was very competent and thorough and wasn't afraid to come back and admit he forgot to ask a question or do a follow-up. I appreciated that.
Dr. Lee conducted thrombo-blast as a possible treatment prior to the decision for surgery. Did not work. He immediately gathered surgical team with Dr. Katragunta due to urgency in treatment & length of 8 hr. travel from home.
Dr. J. Lee and his intern were outstanding - open, sharing, candid. I entered the session concerned and apprehensive, but came out feeling quite assured and confident - Much appreciated!

Dr Lee is the very best. I'm lucky to be his patient
Dr. Jason Lee has all but become a personal friend. His expertise is the best I've ever experienced.
I saw Dr. Lee for Thoracic Outlet Syndrome in 2009, and saw 2 other doctors. I decided to have the surgery done somewhere else. I'm now having issues in my other arm. I saw the other 2 doctors from last time and wanted to get Dr. Lee's opinion. He was extremely petty about me being there. "If you didn't go with me for the last surgery, why are you here? Why not go to the other doctor?" He put his ego in front of care for me - shameful.
I am so lucky to have Dr. Lee as one of my doctors. He is one the best there is.
1st class - Dr. Jason Lee & Dr. George.
Dr. Lee is terrific. Could not ask for better care.

Although he seemed well educated about my clot, he didn't interact in a way where he understood my concerns.
Excellent surgeon.
Good.
He seemed rushed and had 2 interns with him so he did not even sit down to speak with me. I wanted more information than he had time to provide and felt as if I was testing his patience.
When I had my ultrasound on my neck & legs Dr. Lee called the girl at the desk that he didn't need to see me & that everything was good. With my ultrasound.
Very kind and pleasant.
