How was your experience with the doctor?I had to fill out what felt like a short novel’s worth of forms and questions before seeing the doctor. Once he came in, he asked a few more questions, did a physical exam to zero in on the problem, then treated it. He was very thorough, and did more than other doctors have. I am very pleased.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Lee has been very kind and considerate, has not tried to push me for any treatments I don't feel are right for me, and has just overall been a great doctor. He's located at Mount Sinai, so I have waited over an hour to see him, but I've come to expect that from large

How was your experience with the doctor?After a terrifying consult with another ortho (and PT that never pointed out it was an issue that I wasn’t getting better), Dr. Lee put me at ease about my prognosis. I start a treatment plan for lower back pain caused by a bulging disc next week and feel optimistic.

How was your experience with the doctor?I have been seeing this MD since I was first diagnosed with spinal stenosis, herniated disks and arthritis in my back almost 20 yrs ago. I began seeing him at union square and followed up to Mt Sinai. I highly recommend, very personable, warm, caring and always professional. His support staff also is great.

How was your experience with the doctor?My first appointment but I'm very encouraged by the plan he has in store for me to get me back to Normal. I've had the same basic problems for almost 5 years now and Dr. Lee is the first of many doctors I've seen that is articulate enough to explain WHY he's taking the steps he recommends.
