Dr Lee also see´s my mother (I later found out when talking to her about him) so I am definitely glad I have him as a provider.
Great discussion with Dr. Lee and very informative!
Felt dismissed. Not much effort to engage with my concerns. Regarding question #1 - courteous but not friendly. Maybe just having a bad day. But it was an annual visit and I don´t suppose I´ll be back next year. Overall, made me feel discouraged. Not helpful in any way, a waste of my time and money.
Appreciate Dr Lee´s clear explanation of my test results and timely information on the service he will provide in adjusting the Cpap machine if necessary. I did not have any sleep doctor explaining any of my first sleep study in Pensacola FL
Dr. M. Le is an EXTREMELY caring doctor. I wish I had met him, the first day I moved to NW. He is VERY conscientious with my sleep problem_ working with me, one-to-one, for few years.
Best sleep Dr. ever!
Dr Matthias Lee is excellent. Sleep physician.
Dr. Lee is informative and helpful. He asked pertinent questions, (listened and asked perceptive follow up Q´s. He is knowledgeable and concerned! Good doctor to have with sleep problems.
excellent care excellent and streamlined process great team work
God bless this man, Dr. Matthias Lee; he saved my life in 2004. I shared with Dr. Lee the issues regarding scheduling a longer appointment and he took action. This did not stop him from taking the time I needed. I have a traumatic brain injury and did not want to feel rushed with my visit because it exacerbates my stress.
I think you people are great
Dr. M. Lee is an excellent A+++ doctor. I always look forward to seeing Dr. Lee for an appointment or when running into him while seeing another in the same clinic location.
Dr. Lee was incredibly caring, thorough, friendly, understanding, and patient. I was thoroughly impressed with him and felt he listened attentively, never rushed, and made sure that he completely understood what I was trying to communicate.
I have a lot of confidence in Dr. Lee to help me with this problem.
Dr. Lee was very efficient with our time together as I was a late arriving patient. He took care to make sure my need for new equipment were updated and help me select improved breathing apparatus. I left pease with the situation.
I was a very skeptical patient abd dead set against a Cpap machines. However he guided me through it. SOS was a great provider and now I am a happy consistent user. Dr Lee has a very friendly and professional approach to me. approach
enjoyed Dr. lee; very engaging and approachable
Dr Lee is the most professional and thorough Dr! He listens and provides information to empower me to have success with my sleep disorder. I recommend him to anyone who is unhappy with their Dr. or feels they may have a sleep disorder! Top notch Doc!
Dr. Lee is outstanding! I have complete confidence and trust in him.
Dr Lee really took the time to explain the condition and went over all the options.
Dr. Lee is very patient and takes the extra time to explain and to gather new information about my concerns and health
I have recommend Dr Lee to other people
#5. I am on no medications for Dr. Lee. We did talk about my CPAP and he provided some options to current mask.
Dr Lee disregarded some of my thoughts and told me he didn´t believe some things I told him. I felt like I wasn´t heard in some of my concerns
I did not feel rushed in the appointment. Dr. Lee took the time to address concerns from both my spouse and I.
Sometimes depending on schedule, seems very rushed
Dr. Matthias Lee is the best sleep doctor. Our visit time was not long enough.
Dr. Lee is a very good doctor! He is knowledgeable about sleep issues and and very reassuring.
Good dialogue. His explanations anticipated my questions.
Dr. Lee was excellent
I really enjoy dr Lee, he is an amazing doctor
Very efficient and answered all questions.
Excellent doctor very kind & explains everything very good.
Dr Lee has a wonderful way of making me feel like a partner in dealing with this condition. He truly seems intent on wanting me to have a good night´s sleep.
Dr. Lee is exceptional.
I felt very well cared for.
I like my new dr. - Dr. Lee in sleep disorders. I have only seen him once. He didn´t jump to conclusions about me or my disorder but rather - repeated back to make sure he understood.
Dr. Lee was excellent. His candid, professional yet personable approach was comforting and instilled my confidence in him as his patient. He was very thorough, knowledgeable and genuine. Very much appreciated.
As an initial appointment with this MD (M. Lee), covering several ongoing issues in my treatment, I was very glad that he took lots of time to review and address all the issues and possible adjustments to treatment and equipment.
Have recommended Dr. Lee to others.
As is the case with most medical doctors these days, Dr. Lee seemed rushed and impatient. Insurance driven health care is the culprit.
I had this sleep study done before in Oklahoma and that was shared to me by my doctor re: results was it´s severe and I stop breathing 43 times. Dr. Lee not only explain thoroughly to my daughter and I he strongly recommended I call and set up an appt. in Seattle to do the study at the overnight hospital stay. #5. 5 mg. #8. 30 min.
Overall a pleasant experience. Could have spent a little more time explaining the information depicted on the monitor showing test results. If the patient were provided with a graphic explaining the monitor scans well in advance of the follow-up, that could give the patient more time to absorb the info and develop meaningful questions.
He spent a lot of time explaining how to use the mask correctly and showed me my results of my sleep in detail. No one had ever spent that much time with me explaining things as he did. I appreciated it very much.
Dr. Lee is an excellent doctor - he took the care to listen to my concerns and offered advice in a way that I could easily understand. He gave me a few solutions, and he understands that medicine is not one size fits all. I would definitely recommend him for anyone who is suffering from sleep disorders.
Dr. Matthias Lee is by far the best sleep medicine doctor I have ever had. I feel he saved my life. I keep his cards with me and refer many friends and acquaintances to him. I have even shown the video that he did for the Sleep Disorders Clinic.
Been a patient of the Sleep Clinic for 15 years. This was first appointment with Dr. Lee after retirement of Dr. DePaso. I was apprehensive about having a new provider but after this appointment I am very happy that Dr. Lee was available to pick up the ball.
Dr. Lee identified my problem with non-operating machine, and he took direct action to eliminate delays in restoring my therapy program in the same day. I am very impressed with his efforts.
Dr.Mathias Lee is a tremendous physician. In my view he is aided in his sleep clinic/sleep apnea work by his background as a psychiatrist. I have the highest - repeat highest regard for Dr. Lee as a physician and a person. VMC is so fortunate to have Dr. Lee is it´s employ!
I would have appreciated information on the drug he prescribed and why.
Dr. Lee is my sleep apnea doctor he prescribed my CPAP machine & monitors my sleep time and answers questions I may have or makes related suggestions.
My first visit with this new provider. Normal provider retired from practice. Felt like I was being talked down to. Also felt like this person was more interested in being my Psychiatrist(I already have one) than my sleep disorder doctor. He actually mentioned he was a Psychiatrist and asked if I knew that.
I saw Dr. Lee initially for a second opinion about my RLS symptoms and medications. His knowledge and empathy impressed me and I now consider him my primary sleep disorder physician.
Dr. Lee has been outstanding. Very personable, patient, respectful, and is very good at explaining things. He also does not rush the patient and takes time out to explore and explain peripheral circumstances regarding my condition.
Dr. Lee was outstanding.
As indicated by my responses the care provider was exceptional in providing superior care.
Dr. Lee not only explains the information, he shows the results of my VPAP machine.
Dr Lee was very patient with me at the beginning of my use of the sleep apnea machine, particularly since I had had a bad experience initially about 10 years ago with using a CPAP
I love Dr. Matthias Lee. He has always provided exceptional, efficient care for me. I have referred many friends to him.
Dr. Lee is excellent. I felt well taken care of and glad that I have him as a provider.
Dr. Lee is amazingly informed about cutting edge medical sleep issues.
