Gilbert Lee, MD Reviews (348)


Pre-op consultation was honest and supportive. Dr. Lee called me to consult on a possible pre-existing condition (a doctor actually called me - on the phone!!) and he listened to my preferences. The surgical center was professional, supportive and friendly. The results have been as expected!


My nose is much straighter than it was before. The airways are much more open allowing me to breathe better than I could before the surgery. My nose is also much more symmetrical than it was before surgery.

Breast Reconstruction

[Single best thing is...] The warmth and caring of Dr. Lee and his entire staff. The true caring and concern for my well being by Dr. Lee and his entire staff. The excellent artistic results. And the whole experience was just wonderful. I would never consider seeking and plastic or cosmetic procedure from anywhere else!

Breast Implant Revision

Doctor Lee LISTENED to me and encouraged a conversation that went both ways. I am so happy with my revision! I no longer have daily pain. My breast fit my frame. No more saggy skin or ripples! He is so wonderful and his staff is well trained and patient. Fabulous experience.

Breast Implant Removal

They didn't rush, explained things in great detail, answered all my questions.

Fat Transfer

I thought the consultation went very well. Dr. Lee was very empathetic to my concerns. I was told he had openings in late Jan/February for surgery during the consult by the coordinator. When I reached to her the following day she said he was booked until April. I asked her to please let me know if I could get in sooner and never received a response. I understand Dr. Lee is busy but a follow up wouldve been nice.

Dr. Lee and his patient coordinator listened very carefully to exactly what I was wanting. They allowed me to ask as many questions as I wanted and didn’t make me feel like I was annoying them.

Vaginal Rejuvenation / Tightening

Dr. Lee really listened to my issue and gave me the results I truly desired! I felt confident & safe using Dr. Lee as my surgeon and I will continue to use him, and him only for future procedures. I live in Nevada and have came out twice to have surgery by Dr. Lee. He takes pride in his work and his expertise let’s me rest assured that I’m in good hands. He is also very nice. I never once felt uncomfortable or uneasy. I absolutely recommend him.
