The Doctor with the Mostest

Dr samson Lee is the BEST!! After my first surprise skin cancer surgery in March 2014 Dr Lee had the job of putting back together the left side of my face including the eye area. He was so kind and caring throughout the ordeal which included many follow up treatments. In October of 2015 a totally shocking discovery was made that the right side of my face now had an even larger area of skin...

Facial Surgery After Skin Cancer Removal - Issaquah, WA

Dr Lee had to do a rather large facial surgery after skin cancer was removed. The area was about the size of a 50 cent piece and quite deep. At first I was nervous and a bit upset about the appearance of my forehead. There were a lot of stitches that covered a large area. The outcome has been remarkable. I would recommend Dr Lee to anyone. His work is amazing. Just follow directions for...

Very Complicated Revision Rhinoplasty - Issaquah, WA

To summarize: I highly recommend Dr. Lee for difficult rhinoplasties, including revisions! An ENT when I was much younger offered to do a rhinoplasty at the same time I had sinus surgery, and not knowing better, I took him up on it. Needless to say, the results were horrible. My nose was badly misshapen for sixteen years, and my nasal passages were warped. I had horrible tip bossae, sagging of my septum, and pretty much everything was asymmetrical. I was quite anxious when I approached Dr. Lee, who was very transparent about what I could expect. He wasn't the "warmest" of the doctors I met, but that wasn't a big factor to me. His reputation and honors are well-deserved, if my experience is the norm (and I believe it is). Ultimately, I selected Dr. Lee over two other physicians I'd been considering, and I couldn't be happier with my decision for several reasons. Among them: because the damage impeded my airway, his office worked with me to obtain the necessary proof for insurance, saving me tens of thousands of dollars. My surgery was quite complicated, in that there was significant damage to the cartilage inside my nose (we weren't sure exactly how much until surgery). I had chosen a doctor who I felt confident could handle this tricky, meticulous procedure, and I'm very glad I did. I'm about six months post-surgery, and my nose looks and feels great. The changes are remarkable to me, and friends and family have all commented that my nose looks completely natural for my face. Dr. Lee told me it would look "significantly better" than what it looked like pre-surgery, and that's exactly what I got. Not fake perfection, just a nose that suits my face (looks a lot like it did when I was a kid, only better), and for lack of a better phrase, has structural integrity. I highly recommend Dr. Lee for any ENT/rhinoplasty surgery, but particularly complicated ones.

Rhinoplasty - I am really happy with the result - Bellevue, WA

Dr. Lee did a truly outstanding job - I am really happy with the result and the level of expertise he showed. Warning - rhinoplasty comes with some swelling of the nose tip which last up to a year. I'm now 2/3 of year after surgery and seeing the results slowly take shape. It takes patience, but I am glad I went through with the surgery.

Amazing Doctor. Really Cares About His Patients, and Has Fantastic Results! - Seattle, WA

I first saw Dr. Lee because I was recommended to him by one of his partners. I had already seen a few doctors and was set on one, but after I met Dr. Lee I changed my surgery to be scheduled with him. He He uses the latest techniques for surgery, ensuring quick and effective recovery. He truly cares for his patients well being and experience throughout the entire surgery and recovery process. His dedication is admirable. Before the surgery at my consultation Dr. Lee meet with me 3 times to discuss the surgery and answer any questions I had. He gave me a lot of information about the process that I had previously not known. He uses the latest techniques for surgery, ensuring quick and effective recovery. Following surgery I had a few routine follow up appointments with Dr. Lee. After the first week I thought that I had put too much pressure on my nose with an ice pack and caused damage, so I called him to see what I should do. I had an appointment scheduled with him for later that week so I figured he would just look at it then. Instead he asked if I would like to come in later that day (sunday) and he could have a look at it then. There ended up being nothing wrong, but I was so surprised by Dr. Lee's dedication. I really could not be any happier with my results. I can breathe better, and I am so much more confident in myself. Getting surgery with Dr. Lee was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
