Was very reassured by the whole experience
Mr Lee is very personable and explained everything very well and nothing seemed too much trouble.
Dr Lee is an extremely caring doctor. I took my mother for a consultation and he was kind and patient while we translated everything to him as my mother doesn’t speak English.
He was extremely caring and thorough throughout. He listened to all of my questions and answered informatively. I did not feel rushed in any way. I would highly recommend him.
I found Mr Lee very courteous and professional. His explanation was clear and jargon-free. The leaflet he gave me, explaining the cause and prevention of my health issue was informative.
This was my first appointment with Dr Lee upon recommendation from my Mother and optometrist. I found Dr Lee to be approachable, helpful and with a comforting bedside manner when informing me about the situation with my eyes. I would recommend Dr Lee to someone who wanted a consultation for their Retina.
Made me feel very confident re my procedure
Recommended by my normal eye consultant, early days but appears knowledgeable with a caring manner.
I am so happy with my cataract operation, such a nice man and explained all my options. I now feel a changed person and so happy. I wasn’t put out for op and must say on second eye I didn’t feel a thing but made sure drops administered by nurse went right in my eye as first op they went down my cheek and wasn’t so pain free but this was nothing to do with Mr Lee , it was my fault for not making sure they went in . So yes I would certainly recommend Mr Lee to anyone and so would my husband that had the same operation. Gilly C
I have recently had my first consultation with Mr Lee and am so grateful that I was referred to him. He was very thorough with my eye examination and described in detail the nature of my problem. He was happy to answer all my questions and the consultation was not rushed in any way.
