We disagreed on a treatment plan, which to me seemed to be based on her bias towards one potential cause for my diagnosis--while my research leads to many potential causes.

I would never recommend Dr. Lee to anybody. I have never seen a doctor that seems to have zero interest in helping me. I truly feel like I am just a paycheck to her and she has no concern for helping me. She did not explain medication side effects to me. I had to ask her if they could cause weight gain, because I had gained almost 20 pounds in one month. I went through weight loss surgery and was very concerned about the weight gain. She said I need to adjust my lifestyle to compensate for the weight gain implying that I eat poorly and that I'm not active. I had lost over 180 pounds and take my diet and exercise seriously and it infuriated me that she accused me of otherwise when she knew the medication caused it.

On this occasion, we reviewed an MRI report and I was referred to a surgeon. Dr. Lee gave a clear explanation of the reason for needing to see a surgeon and what had changed. She also was attentive to my pain levels and medication needs. I left with a clear understanding of my current condition and treatment plans until my next visit.

The Doctor does not listen to my complaints or offer any decent solutions to my Disease, and continues to take me off the medicine that has helped me in all the years I've suffered from [...]. Since this Doctor took over from my previous Doctor at Swedish, she has increased my pain level to an intolerable level with her inability to compromise. She shows very little compassion towards me and my condition.I have been unable to function at any level with the extreme reduction of my medication. In my opinion, "such as it is", her only concern is to protect herself and to take me off the meds that have worked for me.

Still unsure what this program can do to help me live with all medical issues without medications.

Dr Lee is the best in my opinion. Her staff and Dr Lee are the benchmark for which I judge other professionals.

I was very nervous about having Jennifer Lee as my provider as her online reviews are awful. she was wonderful, she's kind, humble, caring and very knowledgable. I made sure to write positive (glowing) reviews online as the bad reviews are under served.

I believe Dr. Lee is an excellent pain management provider. I would recommend her to anyone that asked. While I do have great confidence in Dr. Lee's abilities. I had a familiarity with Dr. [...] earned through years of monthly visits that has, unfortunately, not transferred to Dr. Lee. However, I suspect that this is normal and surely not Dr. Lee's fault.

Dr. Lee is excellant

Dr. Lee is amazing. She is a great pain Doctor.

Dr. Lee seems very interested in me, and my issues - she works very well with me, and is very easy to talk to.


Everyone is very professional and courteous.

She always has encouraging things to say that are helpful in my ongoing condition. She continues to give me a bad time about smoking. Ha ha "oh well she's right."
