Dr. Lee's personality and expertise are what convinced me to go ahead with the surgery. He was super sweet and explained what he was going to do. He already had a good reputation and so I trusted him. It all went extremely well and the results were better than I expected. His staff are equally amazing and I had an overall excellent experience. The best thing about the surgery is that I healed very fast compared to the other patients, according to Dr. Lee. The results were amazing.

Dr. Gilbert Lee is hands down one of the best doctors I have seen in my entire life! His demeanor and bed side manner is calm, positive, thorough, attentive, flexible and personal. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed and asked me questions about my life. I find doctors are usually distracted or rushed in my past experiences, but not Dr. Lee. He really cares about his patients. His staff are exceptional and extremely welcoming, I give them a 5 star. I would recommend this practice to anyone that values their health and appearance, who wants a doctor that’s empowering and a true team player! Thank you for everything.
