My experience with Dr Lee was excellent. She is always glad to see me. She comes into the room very quickly after I arrive. We have great conversations over my health. I am on very little medications and take them only as needed. I have not needed to see her or any other doctor for more than 4 months. She is on top of what was taking place the last time I saw her and is extremely gracious and respectful of my concerns as well as my thoughts and desires in my care.

Dr. Karen Lee is one of the most considerate, caring, and capable doctors I have ever had. She was aware of my surgery, had the follow-up information, and was very concerned about my health needs.

my visit with Dr. Lee was wonderful. I would like it noted how dispointed I was with the Lab. for my blood work. I visited the lab on healthway on Jan. 24th the greeter was very nice but I over heard talking to another nurse about how another associate who was there but was sick. she mentioned how she was vomiting but still was at work. The greeting nurse was wiping down the desk area. Then the person came out and was talking about her night of illness. Next thing I new she was ca)ing a patient in to do lab work. she was not wearing a mask like they ask the patients to when they are sick. Thank goodness I had the other nurse who was very nice and did a great job. If I was called by the other one I would of refused.
