Too rushed; he could be knowledgeable but it feels like he is trying to end the visit as soon as possible. Does very minimal testing and usually just sends you straight to physio.

Recently visited with an interior right knee issue from a soccer injury. He continually spoke over me as I was explaining how I was injured and the symptoms I had/was experiencing. When physically examining me, he performed 2 very quick tests and diagnosed me within 2 minutes of walking into the room. I have been in multiple doctor offices for a variety of injuries over the years (including the same knee) and have never been so rushed and quickly turned away before (not without prescribing a custom knee brace and physiotherapy). I even had to ask prior to leaving the examination room to have an MRI scheduled to determine the extent of the damage. Seeking a second opinion as, like other reviews, I feel as though he is in it for the $$.

Met with Dr. Lee for hip pain. He was able to tell me what was up within minutes, and was very kind. Spent more time with me than he had to, and took time to make referrals that he thought were helpful. Was awesome.

I was first a patient of Dr Lee's at age 13, and again at age 30. He went through my options (surgical and non) and made well thought out recommendations that were best for me. He was friendly and professional and came up with a plan to keep me active in my sport.

I don't have enough good things to say about Dr. Lee. I was misdiagnosed in emerg and saw him 4 days after my injury. He was up front about what he thought it was, but said we wouldn't know for sure without an MRI. I just saw him again today where I found out I tore my ACL. He was understanding, clearly explained all my options, and did a fantastic job with my consult. To all the people who just want meds, surgery, and a quick fix, you won't get that from any doctor worth his salt. I've had nothing but good experiences with Dr Lee and would recommend him to anybody!! Also I saw him alone without a family member and he was perfectly pleasant to me :)

He would show up 1-2hr late to my appointments or not at all and not even apologize, let alone have an appropriate conversation with me about my injuries. His daughters went to my school, so he would talk about the older one (in my grade) and disapprove of my future life plans. The one day I went to leave when he was 2 hours late and was told I would be billed for the appointment he didn't even bother showing up to. The front desk staff were noticeably uncomfortable telling me this as they knew that was unacceptable. I had just finished attending physio for previous injuries when I fell while running during a race (foot caught in a root while running downhill). I immediately went back to physio and my therapist told me to go see Dr Lee. He said it was nothing more than an ankle sprain and to wrap it up in tensor bandage, use crutches for two weeks, then walk normally again without even examining it. Convinced I broke something, as I had heard some gnarly sounds during the fall, I talked to my physiotherapist - who had noticed my ankle wasn't responding well to the treatment (and my foot was black from bruising). She asked him to send me for more testing. Turns out I had multiple stress fractures to my lower leg and foot (including being dangerously close to having a Potts fracture), a torn hip flexor and a sacroiliac joint injury. He had me walking on all of this....and then got upset with me for going to the therapist about my injury questions and concerns.. Very unhappy with his treatment. Will never see him again. He seems to act in a rude manor to those who come to see him alone, without the backup of a friend or family member..

Dr Lee is awesome. Seeing him for treatment post concussion , really knows his stuff, listens to you, hes very thorough, but also very realistic which I appreciate. At first I saw a normal physician for my concussion, who was basically totally useless besides telling me to rest. Dr Lee on the other hand is very helpful and knowledgeable in giving me a timeline and a guideline to follow for return to activity and as an athlete that wants to be doing what I love, that is vital . Really impressive experience with Dr Lee and Waterloo sports medicine.

I can't believe that the comments I'm reading are about the Dr. Lee that I've seen several times. Yes, he tries to avoid surgery because often surgery is unnecessary AND it can make things worse. Yes, he often prescribes physical therapy, because physio can make a big difference. And yes, he sometimes (not always, as people would lead you to believe) suggests a brace, as braces can make a big difference. Over the years I've had a few different orthopedic issues that I've seen Dr. Lee about, and I've come to see him for 2 different injuries, and I am very impressed by his professionalism. In regards to him not examining an ankle, when I saw him after sustaining a severe sprain, he looked and ordered an x-ray but he did not manipulate by ankle. Any manipulations would have hurt horribly and would have caused further injury. If you want drugs - I don't - he is not your doctor, and good for him. If you want a quick fix, sorry, but most orthopedic injuries require weeks or months of healing time. If you want unnecessary surgery, take a look around at the many people whose problems became worse because of surgery.

Avoid if possible, his solution to everything is to wear a brace, which also became evident in all the comments here. He didn't thoroughly check what was wrong with me, kept interrupting me when I tried to explain to him what was wrong, didn't want to spend any time actually examining my leg, "Come back in 2 weeks and we'll see if the brace fixes it." The only time I saw him motivated to work was when he took me directly to the dispensary so that he could make a sale on the boot and crutches. Please avoid, don't waste your time or money, you can get better medical advice from a potato.
