Patient Reviews

To say I am a tough patient to wrangle into a medical office, let alone an operating room would be an understatement. I have some good reasons but Dr. Lee not only set my mind at ease but she arranged a team that worked with my phobia’s. She was amazing. It finally clicked just before I had the anesthesia. AMAZING and such empathy. I was a very lucky person to have someone so very thoughtful as well a total professional. Thanks will never be enough...I will just have to be a good patient instead.

Dr. Lee is a wonderful physician and a caring person. She consulted with me about my concerns and explained all of the steps of her procedures. I would confidently recommend Dr. Lee to anyone for any GI medical assistance.
- MiriamR

Dr. Lee is personable, compassionate, and is most definitely an expert in her field. I was a bundle of nerves going into my appt. and came out so relieved that I had found an outstanding GI doctor. She spent a lot of time with me and answered all of my questions--I had a lot. I have seen Dr. Lee twice and I am so glad that she is a part of my medical journey.
- Lisa M

I have worked in hospital healthcare for many years. I have never met a doctor more committed to my care. She had a calm presence, and she sought to insure that I had a complete understanding of the route that she was going to take to get to the bottom of my problem. I trust her. She has embraced the lost art of caring for people. South Metro Gastro is blessed to have her on staff.

Dr. Lee may be the worlds greatest GI doctor. Smart, intelligent, beautiful, and clearly an expert in her field. I was so petrified of having an EGD and colonoscopy at age 31--I must have asked at least 10 times about what conscious sedation would be like--she answered all my questions and never made me feel silly for asking. My nerves got the best of me, and I cried like a teenage girl the day of my procedures; Dr. Lee couldn't have been kinder, calmer, or more patient. Yale is lucky to have had Dr. Lee... You can be confident she will take great care of you.
