Thorough, understanding, compassionate.

May 2017
Dr. Lee has been a fantastic doctor throughout my treatment. I have experienced a lot of dr.´s in my life, so I tend to trust my instincts when I say she is better than 9 out of 10 of them. But negotiating my health is like trying to solve: A riddle inside an enigma!!

April 2017
Dr. Lee was very professional, easy to talk to, made me feel comfortable and is very knowledgeable about her profession.

April 2017
Made me feel very comfortable about an "uncomfortable" situation/symptoms

March 2017
Dr. Lee is a very thorough, caring & knowledgeable doctor. I will definitely recommend her to family & friends. She is the best.

December 2016
I liked the discussion we had about my condition and what the various options were.

December 2016
Very satisfied with the care I received from Dr. Lee.

November 2016
Dr. Una is extremely good at what she does. I would & have recommended her at least once to someone else. I feel that she not only cares about me as a patient, but she doesn´t dictate(to me). Doctors can do this, but she works with me to arrive at a decision whether its medication or surgery. This is extremely important to me, because not all doctors have this attitude & I have seen alot of them. I wish more Doctors took this attitude toward treatment. So thankyou to Dr. Lee

October 2016
I felt the doctor could have been a little gentler with the actual procedure. I´ve experienced this procedure three times-Boulder, Portland, and here-in Bellevue. This was the most painful, and resulted in bleeding--whereas the other two only resulted in brief spotting. I feel the doctor is a good doctor, and person; and this, in no way, reflects her practice. I just felt she was a little rough in the handling of my bladder.

October 2016
This is #3 urologist for me and I was about to give up till I found Dr. Lee. Words cannot express the gratefulness I have for the concern, exclamation of problem, and care she has given me. I am so encouraged.
