Dr Lee is a lovely and warm doctor. She has a great bedside manner and is good at explaining what she is thinking. She also asked me what I was thinking and feeling so I felt like she was taking into consideration my overall point of view about my health. I really like her as a doctor.

Came in for extreme back pain all the way through my left leg. Couldn't dress myself or get up from the floor by myself. She made me wiggle around a bit, didn't feel my spine, and kept asking me about unrelated questions. She was more focused on me making an apt. to come back for a pap-smear & STI test and then maybe she'd refer me for PT in a week. I asked about a scan, she said no and prescribed me ibuprofen. Later that day I went to the ER because of the pain and I couldn't walk. They were much more helpful.

My visit with Dr. lee was rushed because I could feel they were behind schedule. My appt. was for pre-op requested by my surgeon. Did not feel they were prepared for me i.e., no urine test done - had to return to office for this. Asked for flu shot, but request was forgotten so I left without one but went to CVS!

Felt that when I addressed my health questions or concerns my provider was a little dismissive and not very understanding to my needs.

This visit was to say goodby to Dr Sue Lee who has been my primary doctor for the last almost 30 years, no one from the office called me or sent me a letter telling me that Dr Lee was retiring on 10/01/18, I had to find out thru another patient that she had heard about Dr Lee retirement, I am very very disappointed, I'm searching to find me another primary possibly not in this office..., I feel this office was very insensitive....I will miss Dr Lee...

I like the monitor in the exam room with the diet and lifestyle tips. It helps pass the time while I wait for the doctor to see me. I usually bring my own book or magazine to look at while waiting.

I spent over 40 minutes waiting for my name to ba called to see the doctor even though I came 10 minutes earlier. Once the doctor did see me she was rushing and just saw me for a total of 15 minutes. she just left the room unexpectedly and I had to go into her office to make sure I was done. she didn't even say that she had sent the request to my pharmacy until I had to ask and verify with her. this has been a really frustrating visit, Dr. Lee definitely didn't care about my time and health concerns. She was rushing to complete my appointment so she can move on the next patient. I have never had a doctor treat me in this manner.

I have been seeing Dr. Lee for over 20 years...this was the worst experience I have ever had with her. It was an annual exam - lasted less than 15 mins - I have COPD - she did not listen to my lungs or heart. Office extremely overbooked with patients. Wanted to insure I had all testing completed before I begin Medicare.

Great doctor it seems - only seen her twice. Your medical group's system STINKS and I was literally kicked out of the examining room in January because my "time was up".

This was my first visit, to get to meet the doctor.I was pleased with the doctor and the visit until the end where the doctor seemed forced to end the visit and I could not complete talking about the issue being discussed. Then the aide rushed me out -all but pushed me out- of the room, for the next patient. I wasn't even able to finish tying my shoes! That has never happened to me before, anywhere, in my life.

Reviewed on December 10, 2017 6:00 PM

I do not go to the dr often. I felt the visit was very short and there was not much done to evaluate my health. I figured that probably blood tests, xrays, and other ordered tests would need to be done before a better evaluation. I was disappointed in the fact that I could not get the doctor on the phone and did not recieve a reply to my email from the dr. I came to the office needing some routine care, but having a significant issue which the xray did not show. I would have liked a 5 minute conversation about next steps rather than a message left about the lack of results. I would have liked this from the doctor rather than a nurse who never met me. I would have liked to have called and left a message or emailed the doctor directly rather than leaving a short message through a service.

The front office ladies are great at the six corners office. This the second time I see the doctor, and the first time was great which is the reason why I decided to move with her, but this second time I had a few questions prepared for her, but didn't get the chance to ask any of them. I felt she had a time frame of 15 mins per person, but don't think every person is the same or each visit is the same. As for the same time I saw her I didn't have any concerns so I was okay with 15 mins but this time I did and the fifteen mins mark was not enough to even ask one question.

There was not enough time allotted for the appointment to discuss all of my medical issues/concerns. Because of this I have to select what issues to address. THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE WITH MY DOCTOR, IT IS AN ISSUE WITH THE ADVOCATE SYSTEM.

Reviewed on October 15, 2017 7:00 PM

I have been going to this office my entire life and have become very familiar with the staff over the years. Previous to my most recent visit, I had been in contact with the office for about a week monitoring an issue I was experiencing. Once my issue worsened I made a last minute appointment. My schedule overlapped with the appointment time that day and I was about 15 minutes late. I greeted the woman I know has worked there for about five years and let her know I was late and asked what my options were. I was given a negative response along the lines of "I don't know what we can do" and made feel like I was a burden. The woman next to her had just finished with a patient, asked what was going on and I explained to her, she immediately checked the schedule and said she could re-schedule me for an open appointment in the next 20 minutes. Within 5 minutes I was called back by a nurse. I wish I had the name of the young lady that took my experience from a negative one to a positive one to commend her for her exemplary service.
