Ratings for Dr. David C. Lee
Dr.Lee has a no nonsense style, but is great with my 2 year old who has multiple serious allergies. I am surprised by any negative reviews and I myself would be inclined to ignore them.
I too am surprised by all the negative responses. I found the entire experience exactly how it should be. Courteous, professional and to the point. My allergies have since gone from debilitating to easily managed with nasal flushes. Since my shots, I no longer need pills at all. As others have said he IS old school. He's there to do a job and he does it well partly because he is efficient. That can sometimes take away from idle chit chat and pleasantries that seem to be expected from some people.
I saw this doctor in 2004. He was very pointed and I got the same spiel about how he spent all his days seeing people who thought they had allergies. They did the skin test. Only when I bubbled up at every prick site did he believe something wasn't right. He softened up at that point but I didn't get much further than where I'd started. I found out from him I had dermatographic urticaria, which was great to know, but he didn't address what was causing my hives. I now have to find another allergist to see as the hives have progressively gotten worse.
I am surprised by the number of negative ratings for Dr Lee. I went to him a few years ago for allergies that I have had for 30+ years and he was wonderful. I do think he may be "old-school" and probably doesn't appreciate patients who try to diagnose themselves and then tell him what is wrong with themselves.....I found him very knowledgeable and most helpful.
I seen Dr Lee in 2005 for allergies he said that I didn't have any yet my skin reacted to something he tested me for, he told me I wasn't allergic to it because my skin didn't bubble right on the testing spot; I found out on my own that I was allergic to milk by elimination process. I am now reacting to something else and like before I've eliminated a lot out of my diet yet I keep having reactions and antihistamines seem to work a little bit & I keep popping them a couple times a day even know the packages say good for 12hrs. I have been resent to see Dr Lee and last month I had to cancel my appointment because I had a dental appointment that day and I could not see him my mouth was frozen. My doc office has re-faxed a request to see Dr Lee 3 times but I keep getting told by the receptionist that they never get the fax; which is total BS! I asked to be referred to another allergist I’d rather see someone that cares about patients health.
Went to see Dr. Lee with my 7 year old daughter following and allergic reaction to something. Having read all the comments here first figured I would kill him with kindness. We were seen immediately and he was very thorough in his examination. We ultimately decided against testing based on many questions and answers and will revisit should she have another reaction. No concerns here
Worst experience ever. Upon visiting the office for the first time, I was told my appt was cancelled, as they could not contact me the day before. Refused to see me. Staff was incredibly rude. I was told I had to pay $20 was the missed appt? - in which they cancelled.
Dr Lee is an old school Physician. Has an abrupt bed side manner and it seems to me that he feels that his time is being wasted a lot of the time. My initial visit started out rough but got much better after my skin testing, and his nursing staff was fab when I was super nervous about a full strength test that in the past has caused anaphalyxis. My second visit was as good as a doctor visit gets where he retested for new allergies and talk to me very open and honestly about the potential of my new baby to have reactions to what I eat. He also was patient with me when I did not understand his answers reexplaining things in a manner that made sense to me. I am happy to be one of Dr Lees's paitents
After readingall the negative reports I was a little anxious about going to see this Dr. but I was pleasantly surprised. He was not rude with me but very intent on getting things done. My testing was done quickly and painlessly . All in all I was happy with Dr. Lee
