I had the honor to work at Stanford for Dr. Shumway and after working for such a world renowned physician of his caliber I consider Dr. Lee to be on her way to becoming as fine a physician in a different surgical specialty.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Dr. Lee seems to be an excellent and very thorough physican. She listens well, explains things well, shows genuine concern about my condition and wants to help me get answers to my "mystery" illness symptoms.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Took her time to fully investigate and examine. Comprehensive approach.

SHC Patient, May 2015

The doctor was a credit to her profession and dealt with me in a very adept manner, sizing me up intellectually and dispelling as much anxiety within me that it was in her power to do. I appreciate her adamant desire to maintain contact with me and her warmth toward my homeless condition and her congratulations on my forthcoming permanent housing. She was competent and mindful of the human care elements of treatment. I really appreciated her.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Care giver told RN to tell me "she didn't need to follow up with me.

Most impressive ENT I've ever worked with. Quite rigorous and detail oriented. Liked the fancy tools such as the shared vision endoscope - she used this to explain what we were looking at in trying to resolve my questions.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr. Lee saw me twice for emergency treatments and consultation. She is thorough, patient and clear in her communications. She also called me to follow-up as to whether I had any questions, how I was feeling and to discuss test results with me.
