Douglas J. Lee, M.D.


Professional Statement

Dr. Lee was influenced by his father, an anesthesiologist, to go into medicine. Dr. Lee, however, chose to specialize in medical oncology, because he was drawn to the human side of patient care as well as to the exciting prospect of seeing an incurable disease become curable. He came to Seattle originally to study bone marrow transplants and now practices general medical oncology to fulfill a lifelong desire to make patient care his highest priority. Dr. Lee holds the belief that quality of life, as well as length of life, are equally important in cancer care. "Since coming here, I've become extremely interested in cancer pain management and in multidisciplinary team approaches to specific cancers, such as breast cancer."
