Dr. Byong-Wha Lee is the PERFECT doctor. She listens and provides advice and follows up with her suggestions. She will call herself at 9pm and say "I see you haven't had that test we talked about--can I help"? She is professional and the right amount of friendly... FACEY couldn't do better.

10/28/2019
I see Dr. Lee for follow-up office visits every 3 months. I suppose as I get older (I am 61) it makes sense to see my primary care physician on this schedule. During my office visit, she takes the time to find out what is going on with me and asks me questions about my health and what's going on with me. She schedules routine lab and radiology appointments as needed (for example, I had my annual mammography scheduled during my last appointment with Dr. Lee).

Everyone from Reception, MA to Dr. Lee were very helpful and friendly. Felt very comfortable with everyone.
100

06/11/2019
I love Dr. Lee and have been with her for many years. What I was unhappy with was that apparently Facey has told her that she can only spend 20 minutes with me for a physical exam (instead of 40 minutes we used to have). Facey, this is CUTTING THE QUALITY of our healthcare. I felt rushed and that she did not have time to give me the usual care.

04/30/2019
I see my doctor every 3 months for my diabetes. The last two visits I had to wait to see the doctor between 45 minutes to one hour. The first time 45 minutes and this last time an hour! This is very frustrating especially because these are routine visits that should not be taking more than 30 minutes between the wait time to be called in the room and seeing the doctor.

04/13/2019
I really like Dr. Lee and followed her from the Valencia location which is much closer for me but it has become very difficult to get in to see her and for the distance I now have to travel since you moved the Canyon Country office is making me rethink my choice. This is my biggest gripe, not being able to get in to see my doctor.
100

04/10/2019
I enjoyed going to Dr. lee's because she really cares about you!
100

04/09/2019
