I really really like Twiggy
just made 21 and was very nervous about the papsmere part of it. dr did an amazing job explaining the procedure so that I was comfortable and prepared.
Dr. Lee is always super easy to talk to which is fantastic. I really appreciate that she shows a genuine interest in me by asking about my work, etc.
Dr. Lee is one of the best doctors I´ve had!
I love Dr Lee. She is always very caring and attentive. Hands down my favorite doctor.
Dr. Lee was thorough, interested in obtaining my input and provided instructions for care.
our appointment felt more rushed than usual
I have always had an awesome experience at this office, I´ve never had any complaints for the politeness or kindness of staff!
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.
Dr. Twiggy Lee is an outstanding doctor; her presence enhances the reputation of Virginia Mason...I would recommend her to anyone.
really like Dr. Lee and have referred several patients to her including family members - all feel she is outstanding
Dr Twiggy Lee is amazing! I´ve never had a PCP that was as invested in my health and wellbeing!
Twiggy was excellent, friendly informative and very knowledgeable.
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.
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.
Dr. Lee is outstanding!
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
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.
Dr. Lee an excellent doctor-she is kind and compassionate as well as being a brilliant diagnostician!
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!
My whole family sees Dr. Lee - she´s fantastic.
Dr. Twiggy Lee is an excellent Doctor. I have no problem recommending her and have done so in the past.
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.
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.
Dr. Twiggy Lee understood my health concerns and explained how I can maintain a healthy lifestyle.
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.
Dr Lee is clearly a superior provider.
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.
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
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.
I have recommended Dr. Lee to friends. She´s great.
LOVED Dr. Lee from the start and felt connected to her immediately.
Dr. Lee & Meagan are fabulous!
Dr. Twiggy Lee had me laughing. Love her sense of humor.
Dr. Lee is a woman that makes me feel confident in my medical care and empowered to make my own decisions regarding my healthcare. She is caring, kind and most of all SMART.
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.
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.
Love Dr. Lee!!
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.
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
She is the best doctor I have had in a long time.
I AM hoping she will accept me after she returns from maternity leave.
I love Dr. Lee! She treats me with respect, she spends quality time, I highly recommend her to others.
Twiggy Lee is amazing!
I already have recommended Dr. Lee to other folks.
Dr. Lee is an excellent physician. She´s very good at listening to my concerns and giving me very clear and informative feedback. I trust her judgment and expertise and I highly recommend her.
I have recommended Dr. Lee to several people - all of whom have Dr. Lee as their provider.
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.
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.
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.
I´ve recommended Virginia Mason to several friends.
Very good experience
Dr Lee is awesome.
I have recommended Twiggy Lee to four of my friends. All are now patients of hers and Virginia Mason.
