She burst through the door and said "what are YOU doing here?" I had been told by walk in clinic physician that I should be seen for high blood pressure and an updated physical. I was startled and didn't know how to respond, since I had been told to make this appointment. I'm new at Medicare and wasn't aware of all the rules concerning timing of visits. She made me feel as though I had done something wrong in making this appointment.

I spent 25 years as a nurse. I haven't seen a doctor who is more competent, caring, and dedicated to her patients. She is a gem within your system.

Excellent.

Dr. Lee always shows she truly cares about you. She makes sure you're comfortable and that you understand any follow up. She took the time to address all of my concerns, and I appreciate her candidness when I was looking for answers.

I have been seeing Dr. Twiggy Lee since September of 2018 and will continue to schedule appointments with her. She is professional, personable, kind, and well-informed. Thank you Dr. Lee for what you do.

I am surprised by changes to the latest standard of care for an annual exam (lowered blood work, zero breast exam, more years between PAP smears), but my MD appeared to be observing current standard of care.
  Overall Patient Rating - February 2019
Twiggy Lee is the best doctor I have ever had. She took the time to explain "in layman terms" everything I came to see her about. I would highly recommend Dr. Twiggy Lee!
  Overall Patient Rating - February 2019
Dr. Lee is wonderful and super attentive its like she know's immediately what I need before I do. There is also no problem to awkward or to uncomfortable to bring up with her.
  Overall Patient Rating - February 2019
I would've appreciated a more detailed follow up recommendations to my physical. (Dr. recommended diet to follow but we never discussed nutrition at visit.)
  Overall Patient Rating - February 2019
This was my first visit with the doctor which was good but I still need more encounters to truly determine my confidence in her and likelihood of recommending her to others.
