Are you a patient of Elizabeth Lee, MD?
I really like Dr. Lee. She is an honest, straightforward doctor who is not motivated to do procedures unless they are the best answer for you. I have gone to her for small injections such as Dysport and Restylane and also a small surgical procedure. I also consulted with her about a more major surgery, and she was very kind and honest and explained I would not benefit from it, which I really appreciated. I get the feeling other plastic surgeons would not only do any procedure, but push procedures that are unnecessary. She is very smart and pleasant and I always have a positive experience at her office.
Highly skilled and very kind, Dr. Lee is everything you could want in a plastic surgeon.
Dr. Elizabeth Lee was the only doctor I interviewed who "got it" that I didn't want implants. Three other doctors tried to convince me that I would be better off with smaller implants or to do explant with a lift or smaller implants plus a lift. Dr. Lee spent an entire hour with me discussing options and truly getting a picture of what would work for me. Together we opted to go for explant only and reassess the possibility of a lift after 6 months. Dr. Lee explained the miraculous way that the skin will adapt post-removal of implant.
I initially visited Dr. Lee to discuss my very raised and bumpy c-section scar but, took the opportunity to talk about a possible tummy tuck as well. She was so easy, approachable and informative. She explained my options and at no time did I feel like she was pushing me in any direction. After researching other plastic surgeons in the area, I decided to have the tummy tuck and to go with Dr. Lee. Not only was there an overwhelming amount of positive feedback posted about her at various sites but, she was also incredibly personable, communicative and a good listener. The surgery went very well and recovery was just as she explained, not fun but no complications. She has worked continuously with me to ensure that my new scar does not grow like my old one. I would absolutely go back to Dr. Lee if I needed other procedures in the future.
Dr. Lee was referred to me by another doctor. I can't say enough about how fabulous my necklift experience was and is. I am in my 70's and I had a serious turkey waddle neck. The folds of skin even hung over my turtle necks. Dr. Lee did an incredible job with hardly any discomfort. Both she and her office staff were extremely wonderful and dealt with my fears and anxieties. The surgery was so much easier than I thought it was going to be and Dr. Lee was always available for my questions and concerns both before and after the surgery. In my opinion she is truly an artist and I would recommend her to anyone.
My experience at this office was great. I live in San Francisco and this office is in Berkeley...but Dr. Lee was recommended by a friend and she was offering a laser peel special, so I thought I would give it a shot. Well worth the drive (even in traffic). This office is busy, but they process you quickly and competently from your intake paperwork to your follow-up call. I appreciate this. My consult was somewhat quick but I left informed and I was offered plenty of opportunities to ask questions and could have had more time with Dr. Lee if I needed it (In case the brief consult sounds like a negative, I should probably add I'm a nurse and not new to laser treatments so we didn't need to reinvent the whole wheel on this treatment). As far as the actual Laser peel goes, the experience was also very good and the result was much better than I anticipated. I'm very happy with my experience at this office and will recommend this treatment to friends.
Dr Lee is a true professional in every sense. She really listens to you and takes in and addresses all of your concerns. Her staff is always courteous, professional and discreet about the services and they always do a follow up call. For my service there was minimal wait time and quick turn around time to continue on with my day.
From start to finish, my procedure was handled with class. I was given all of the information I needed by a very communicative Dr. Lee, her kind and professional staff, and her amazing, detailed printed materials. I was confident that all would go smoothly and, indeed, it did. There were NO SURPRISES and the results exceeded my expectations.
This quality of communication and expertise in medical precision is fantastic. I will forever appreciate the caring and artistic expertise of this doctor.
Dr. L is warm, knowledgeable and truly talented. She was extremely thorough when explaining the procedure and when answering all my questions before and after surgery. Her commitment to me as a patient was outstanding. She is a rare find.
