Accepting New Patients
Professional Statement
The physician/patient relationship works best when both parties freely communicate and cooperate, and when the patient feels respected and listened to. Health is a positive state, not just the absence of disease. While many chronic diseases need long-term treatment and monitoring, attention needs to be directed towards the big picture. Exercise, good nutrition and an overall sense of well-being affect health far more than is often appreciated.

Dr Lee has been exceptional. He actually listened to me, heard what I was saying and put it in perspective in order to help me. He has spent more time with me than other doctors I have seen in past appointments. I am most impressed.

After my physical I checked MY CHART the next day and noticed it said I was overdue for a T-Dap; I asked Dr. Lee why that had not been done when I was in the office and he said it was his oversight and that I could come in anytime without an appointment to have it done. I appreciated his honesty and apology in having overlooked this but still not happy about having to return for another visit and have to pay for parking. The doctor's office should at least foot the payment for parking.

Just love Dr. Lee. He spends as much time as I need with him and always explains everything fully. Didn't need to talk about my meds because I've been taking them for years

I always feel that my provider listens and looks me in the eye when we talks. He always asks me about a previous problem to make sure I followed up on his instructions. Before I leave his office he asks me, "is there anything else we need to talk about?" He is very conscientious

He prescribed antibiotics. I went by scheduling to set up a physical. I learned he would be out of office for 10 days. I wish he had told me that, and what to do if I had concerns while he was gone. because he was running behind schedule, maybe he didn't think of it.

I have recommended Dr. Lee to several friends. He's an extremely good primary care provider!! I have so much confidence in him that I made him my sons PCP, as well as my husbands. He was the first provider to find a diagnosis for my long term health problem, and thanks to him, I am on the road to recovery! He really takes the time to listen to me, and he makes sure that I am part of my health care decisions. I can't say enough good things about him!!

Dr Lee is a good listener and down to earth Doctor. He has good medical knowledge from what I saw and tries to get at the root of a problem and not just give it a pill.

Before I came to minor & James I was getting my care at [...] hospital which was the poorest care I have experienced. It was a nightmare. Since coming on board with your clinic I have only had this kind of care twice in my life that, made me feel safe & secure in my relationship with my, doctor and caregivers.

The care is good, but so much time is spent writing visit notes, the doctor doesn't spend enough time doing a genuine physical exam. All my doctors schedule tests or referrals and few do physical exams.

There was an issue with getting my prescription. I went to the doctor on Monday […]. I went to the pharmacy on Monday. They said the didn't received the script. […] I called Thursday and indicated to send the script to another pharmacy. I went to [...] and the incorrect script was sent for an infection on the eye when the infection is of the thigh. Both scripts were actually OTC medications. [...]

He quickly diagnosed muscle/rib pain rather than heart pain based on acute pain info. I think the deeper pain, feeling of congestion, fullness of my heart was too quickly dismissed as "tightness of my chest." I will seek a total physical & EKG.

Dr. Lee has always been very thorough, and when referring me to another refers me to good providers. [...] Although I live in Everett I make the drive to Seattle for healthcare.

I do not have any thing except good things to say about my provider. He always makes sure I understand what I ask about. I am very pleased with my care.

Dr. Lee is open minded about holistic care options. We have been unable to find a cause for one problem, and I fear being labeled a hypochondriac or no longer being taken seriously. Dr. Lee has been very thorough in ordering tests. He is pretty good at offering cause for hope.

Dr. Lee is exceptionally open-minded & he LISTENS to your pt. of view.
