Ratings for Dr. Tommie Lee
What a bundle of energy! Great doc. Answers all my questions and explains everything he is doing while he is doing it. Never makes me feel as I am uninformed or pressures me to buy products offered at his location. Even remembers to ask about my kids and what they are now doing. Seems to really enjoy his job. I recommend everyone I know to him and they have come back with positive reviews as well.
I've been going to Dr. Lee for 8 years or more. Dr. Lee is personable, thorough, knowledgeable, incredibly friendly, and always ready to take time to answer all my questions. I never feel rushed through the exams and discussion. His reception staff is also excellent - friendly, professional and helpful.
I have the trifecta of really bad eyes (-8.5), astigmatism and needing reading glasses, and Dr. Lee was the first to successfully put me back into contacts, which i hadn't been able to wear for years. Plus like someone else commented, he saw something in a routine checkup that he suggested i get followup with an opthamologist, who was impressed with the catch. I'm generally leery of the glasses chains' in-house optometrists, but have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Lee (who's a nice guy to boot)
I've seen Dr. Lee for about the last four years, and followed him to his current location when the last shop had to move. I ask a lot of questions, and Dr. Lee has always taken the time to to give me detailed explanations. He is also very through in his examinations and his "bedside manner" is wonderful. Prior to moving to DC I saw a fancy ophthalmologist in NYC because my insurance covered the cost. Although Dr. Lee is an optometrist, he has always provided me better care. An added bonus is that the sales shop at For Eyes is removed from the doctor's office, so you don't get pushed to buy products. You can always take your prescription elsewhere. Frankly, though, I've never needed to because the shop has a great selection and decent prices.
