Dr. Lee recently moved to the Atlanta area from Rochester, NY where she had a thriving medical practice combining Integrative –Functional Medicine with traditional Family Practice. She is a board certified Family Physician who has a passion for Functional Medicine. After practicing conventional medicine for many years, Dr. Lee became dissatisfied with the Band-Aid: the symptomatic pill-dispensing approach to people’s health, and wanted to delve deeper into the root cause of her patient’s medical problems.
This focus became even more intense when Dr. Lee’s daughter was diagnosed with Lupus and was told there was nothing that could be done to prevent the debilitating Lupus flares except to give powerful immune modulating drugs whenever flares occurred. This launched Dr. Lee on her journey of learning how to optimize a patient’s immune system, quell inflammation naturally and potentially reverse some of these complex autoimmune effects.
Though her special interests are in autoimmune disorders, fatigue, gastrointestinal issues, woman’s health and bioidentical hormones, she is trained to treat many more conditions from an Integrative perspective.
She feels it has been a great asset to be trained in both conventional medicine as well as Functional Medicine, bringing the best of both worlds to leverage the best possible care for her patients.
Dr. Lee looks forward to helping alleviate the suffering many patients have endured dealing with chronic illness and not having satisfying options. You will love her warm, personal caring personality as well as her medical expertise from a fresh new perspective.
