I enjoyed my time with Dr Lee. She included me in the decision making process regarding my care and was respectful of my concerns.
April 2018
Dr. Lee was very efficient, particularly because my scheduled appointment length was only 15 minutes, but still personable and caring.

It seemed the DR. was busy not just with me.
March 2018
I LOVE Dr. Lee!
March 2018
Twiggy Lee was GREAT! She was concerned about how I would handle being ill while being a single parent. I really felt that she was genuinely concerned about my health and my home situation. I don´t think I´ve ever had a physician in my 52 years make me feel quite as supported as a patient as Twiggy Lee did. Thank you Dr. Lee!
March 2018
I refer Twiggy Lee to anyone who asks. We all LOVE her!
March 2018

Care provider was substitute for my doctor who is on maternity leave, I would not recommend her or schedule an appointment with her again. Her explanations were confusing and contradictory. Her demeanor was dismissive.
January 2018
I am recommending Dr. Lee to my wife.
January 2018

January 2018
I really like Dr. Lee. She is compassionate, practical, and down-to-earth.
January 2018
first thing I did, after finishing my UVillage Dr Twiggy Lee appt, was to text a friend, and tell her, that I loved Dr Lee. Very happy I switched from Swedish Ctr Comprehensive Care, formerly, Minor and James Medical; and also switched from Poly Clinic. Hope all the good continues, with Virginia Mason, when I go to other Virginia Mason appts with other physicians.
January 2018
Twiggy Lee may be my favorite medical provider yet. She was informed and provided info. Definitely respectful. As someone was overweight but healthy, I appreciated her comment in believing in healthy at any size. She also countered that with helpful information about my concerns about the rate of my weight gain. I got the real sense that we would be a team in addressing any health concerns I might have, which is what I want out of a doctor.
January 2018
This was the best medical clinic experience I´ve had in 20 years. my doctor was awesome, I waited 1 minute for my labs and mammogram. I even received a call from both the doctor and the radiologist all within two hours of my appointment. It was truly a stellar experience .
January 2018
I have recommended Dr. Lee to family and friends. It´s been more than 30 years since I have had a doctor that listens, processes and comes to insightful conclusions in the same way. PLUS she is very nice.
January 2018
Dr Twiggy Lee is exceptional. She spends so much time with me compared to previous care providers I´ve had. She is efficient but spends enough time delivering her responses that I always leave feeling like my questions have been answered. She is also provides great balance between clinical responses and practical lifestyle advice.
January 2018
Dr. Lee is amazing. I truly believe that she genuinely cares about her patients. She is very intelligent and can think outside the box to find the best solution.

I have recommended Twiggy Lee to several friends already and will continue to do so.
November 2017
Very pleased with Dr. Lee she seemed to really care about my health and my concerns. She walked me over to the lab for my blood draw. Tried to help with scheduling a mammogram.- front dest asked me to schedule from home. This was my first visit with Dr. Lee and I am going to keep her even though drive quite a distance. She is wonderful.

I have always had an awesome experience at this office, I´ve never had any complaints for the politeness or kindness of staff!
July 2017
Dr. Twiggy Lee is fantastic. I was seeing her regarding sensitive issues (weight gain and hormonal imbalance) and she was so empathetic when listening to my concerns. She made me feel like I had a lot of control over the choices that impact my health and suggest realistic ways I could make improvements. I also appreciated her own personal anecdotes-- they were very humanizing.
July 2017
Dr. Twiggy Lee is an outstanding doctor; her presence enhances the reputation of Virginia Mason...I would recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Lee was filling in for my PP who is on maternity leave and her care was excellent and she provided help with my concern over my anesthesia for my cataract surgery in another facility.
June 2017
She is responsive to my requests. Dr. Twiggy is an outstanding partitioner. She is "my hero" due to past action. She is fabulous about "follow through" often does this immediately at the visit. I don´t plan to see anyone else - she is worth the drive from Bothell.
June 2017
Dr. Lee is outstanding!
May 2017
Dr Twiggy Lee is one of the best PCPs that I have ever been to and I have been coming to Virginia Mason since I was 19 yrs old and have worked for VM for over 28+years so I have seen other physicians but she is clearly the best, in my mind
May 2017
Dr. Lee is an amazing doctor. She is quick, but concerned. She is straight to the point and gets you in and out and feeling better fast.
May 2017
Dr. Lee an excellent doctor-she is kind and compassionate as well as being a brilliant diagnostician!
May 2017
Dr. Lee was amazing. Given that she is not my normal PCP, it would have been easy to just conduct a routine visit. Dr. Lee spent a lot of time getting to know about my history and concerns and I had extremely high confidence in her advice. was very happy!
April 2017
My whole family sees Dr. Lee - she´s fantastic.
April 2017
Dr. Twiggy Lee is an excellent Doctor. I have no problem recommending her and have done so in the past.
April 2017
Excellent.
April 2017
Dr. Lee is highly professional, knowledgeable and clearly discussed the potential etiologies for my condition and the options for further evaluation and treatment. No new medications were required or prescribed.
April 2017
I am very impressed with Dr. Lee. Prior to becoming of "Medicare Age" I have only used a naturopath and I have concerns about using an allopathic medical dvc. for several reasons, however, her staff of practicing and demeanor with me has exceeded my expectations.
March 2017
I really like her a person but as a doctor, I feel that she is so rushed....she talks so fast and you can tell she wants to be in and out. as we were talking, she was already on her phone looking for a prescription for me, not making eye contact. Again, I think she treats me fine but I would like someone that doesn´t seem like there is a ticking clock all the time.
March 2017
Dr. Twiggy Lee understood my health concerns and explained how I can maintain a healthy lifestyle.
March 2017
Dr Lee is clearly a superior provider.
February 2017
Dr. Twiggy Lee is an outstanding physician. She is personable, funny and quick but also very knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. I recommend her to all of my clients whom I believe wood appreciate her style of care. I like to incorporate holistic care/preventativeand the doctor is very supportive. She doesn´t have me come in unnecessarily. I usually do not like going to the doctor, but trust Dr. Lee completely.
February 2017
LOVED DR. LEE. She saw through whatever I was holding back (in my emotions and concerns) and really got to the heart of my issues and made me feel so understood and cared for. As an MD myself, I was really touched by her good advice and excellent care
February 2017
I appreciated that Dr. Lee gave me advice about my health and if the initial activities that I could do didn´t work, the future course of action.
February 2017
I have recommended Dr. Lee to friends. She´s great.

January 2017
Dr. Twiggy Lee had me laughing. Love her sense of humor.
October 2016
Dr. Lee is the best doctor I have been to. She is very upfront and direct while being understanding and personable. I will continue to go to her as long as I can.
October 2016
Physician talked too fast, and, overall, seemed in a rush. I waited 20 minutes from my scheduled appointment time to see her. She probably spent 5 to, at most, 10 minutes with me.
October 2016
Love Dr. Lee!!
September 2016
I have lost so many GP´s as they always seem to get pregnant....with the exception of Dr. Rochier.....Very sincere, professional and caring provider who is here to stay once she gives birth to her healthy child.
September 2016
provider was warm, profesional, and expressed concern for my welfare and wanted to make sure care and labs, etc were attended to in a timely manner because of the potential seriousness of my condition
August 2016
She is the best doctor I have had in a long time.

June 2016
I have recommended Dr. Lee to several people - all of whom have Dr. Lee as their provider.
May 2016
I already do recommend Dr. Lee to my friends and family - she´s wonderful. You feel very involved in your own healthcare choices, talking over options and planning next steps. I had a note before I left the office to make sure I checked my blood pressure later on in the week to establish a better baseline, and knew we´d need another appointment if the results were still high. Great "My Virginia Mason" follow up on my test results - I really appreciate knowing so soon. I´m just delighted with the whole experience.
March 2016
Dr. Twiggy Lee possesses to a high degree all the elements that one wishes for in a primary care provider: An open-minded intelligence as seen by the concerned way in which she treats the whole patient, by her desire to provide understanding in place of uncertainty and stress, and by her unusual ability to make one feel a part of the entire process.
March 2016
First time at U village clinic and with this physician, felt like our time was unimportant. She responded to my questions, but with bare minimum care. Felt like she recommended that I not come once a year for routine checkup or follow up, because I am healthy. The reason I am healthier is because I am taking preventative action to keep myself this way by being involved in my health ... this physician was not. I wouldn´t go back to her.
March 2016
I´ve recommended Virginia Mason to several friends.
February 2016
Very good experience
January 2016
Dr Lee is awesome.
January 2016
I have recommended Twiggy Lee to four of my friends. All are now patients of hers and Virginia Mason.
