Dr. Twiggy Lee in incredible. I am so glad my pediatrician recommended me to her years ago. I strongly dislike going to the doctor, but she has always made my visit great. I was talking to a friend this week about how much I like my primary care doctor and we learned we both see Dr. Twiggy Lee and went off on how incredible she is.
  Overall Patient Rating - October 2020
Dr. Lee listened to my description of my leg injury, asked appropriate questions, suggested X-rays prior to diagnosis. The X-rays told us what we need to know and she suggested the treatment.

The doctor did not outline possible/common side effects of medication that she prescribed. (I learned of side effects from the paperwork enclosed with the prescription when dispensed by pharmacy). I decided not to take the prescription.

Dr. Lee has gone way ABOVE AND BEYOND for me - that is why I travel to University Village to see her when she left the Lynnwood office. I couldn't ask for a more caring doctor when it comes to dealing with the issues I have had over the years. She truly cares and that means everything

Dr. Lee was amazing! I've never felt so genuinely cared for at a doctor's office visit in my life. She wasn't rushed at all. Extremely patient and kind with my questions. I felt *truly cared for*. I will not hesitate in the slightest to refer her to whoever I can to Dr. Lee. And I can't say enough good things about her and my visit. That experience was appreciated more than anyone could ever realize. Thank you so much!

I absolutely love Dr. Lee (aka Twiggy) She's charming, engaged, great at delivering an overview treatment plan of my health concerns - and she gets me into follow up appointments like mammograms and colon cancer screening, so I'm up to date with preventative care. I wouldn't change doctors for the world!
