From the Provider

“Women and families experiencing complications during pregnancy need data and expertise. But even more, they need someone to help them understand what it means for them. Someone who will listen to their needs, learn about their situation and guide them in reaching decisions that take all things into account. My goal is to help each person understand the best available science and to be the source of emotional support and encouragement they need.”

About the Provider

Dr. Lee finds helping women and families navigate the complications of pregnancy to be very rewarding. While he enjoys caring for all high-risk pregnancies, he has special interest in the fields of diabetes in pregnancy, preterm delivery and ultrasound.

He currently serves on the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine’s (SMFM) Board of Directors, the Advisory Board for SMFM’s Practice Management Division, the SMFM Committee on Patient Safety and Quality, and the SMFM Clinical Informatics/EMR Steering Committee.

    Is there anything else you would like to share about your experience with your provider?

    I did not appreciate the manner in which the information was presented. I was in a state of stress, and though I was given good news, it took some time to sink in. When I didn't celebrate immediately, I was treated as if I was hoping for bad news. It would have been nice to have been treated with more delicacy in the matter. Also promptness. My husband and I had been there waiting for 3 hours.

    Dr. Lee was outstanding! He took time to answer my questions, review my medically history, and help me understand my medical situation. He was very caring and thorough. He was extremely knowledgeable and confident. He supported his recommendations and medical knowledge with his experience, statistics, and medical resources. He was also very personable and humorous. I look forwarded to future appointments with Dr. Lee and his medical assistant. Thank you so much Dr. Lee!
