Ratings for Dr. Shung Lee
I met Dr Lee in September for an initial consult. He saw me 15 minutes after my stated appointment time, not bad for an MD. He was courteous, knowledgeable and kind. He called me a few weeks later with the results of tests and explained to me my options. He answered all my questions. I realize others have not had a good experience but so far, for me, he's been great!
Supremely rude with no bedside manner at all. He did NOT act like a professional during our appointment. Exceptionally dismissive and insinuated that I was a liar during our discussion. No health care professional should make you feel so insignificant and stupid. Very unprofessional and made this a very poor experience. I've had other vascular specialists present the same information to me in a much better and more appropriate way, with patient compassion at heart.
Because of my atrial fibrillation, Dr. Lee believed that I had thrown a clot which blocked my femoral artery. He explained the surgical procedure clearly which was to remove a section of an ankle vein, open the femoral artery, clear it out and attach the vein. The surgery was a success. Dr. Lee came to see me twice in the hospital. I saw him for one post op follow up. I found Dr. Lee's manner to be very professional and am grateful that he is suck a skilled surgeon. I have recommended him highly to others. Sharon McCollough

I was referred to Dr. Lee with a blocked carotid artery. During the initial consultation he very thoroughly explained the condition and my options in a manner that I could understand. He patiently and politely answered my and my wife's questions and then set a date for my carotid endarterectomy. My wife was very pleased with the courtesy he extended to her after the operation by calling her in person to assure her the operation went well. Dr. Lee came to see me on the ward prior to my release from Royal Jubilee. We are very grateful to Dr. lee and recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone seeking his considerable expertise. Thank you!
Dr. Shung Lee performed varicose vein ligation and thromboject at the Victoria Surgery. Excellent pre op service, Wonderful presence by the staff at the surgery. Excellent post op information to take home. Four days post op and my leg hasn't felt this good in five years.
I read the review below, but cannot understand any of the poor ratings, as my experience with Dr. Lee was very positive. I spent a little longer than I wanted in the waiting room, but once it was my turn he took a great deal of time with me, answering all my questions and explaining my condition in great detail. I realized that if he gave all his patients this level of attention, it wouldn't take long for him to 'run a little behind schedule'. I had a varicose vein stripping surgery performed at Victoria Surgery and have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Lee and everybody (from reception to recovery) at Victoria Surgery.
Dr. Lee did surgery (both legs) for my painful varicose veins, and each time I have seen him he has been very helpful with explaining what is happening, and what could be done. He seems very thorough, and the surgeries and recovery both went well. I was gratified that any questions or issues that I had post surgery were fully answered personally by him on the phone, and the scarring is very minimal. I am grateful for his skill and attention to detail, and am almost pain free after more than 30 years of feeling hopeless about it.
