“My primary goal is getting to know each of my patients by listening, and then tailoring my treatment plan to optimize their quality of life. As new evidence and therapeutic techniques emerge, I integrate different options to provide the best care.”
Dr. Lee chose gastroenterology because it is such a multifaceted field. During her residency, she fell in love with the field because it allowed her to take part in both the diagnostic and therapeutic role of procedures as well as the physician-patient relationship that comes with chronic diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease and liver disease.
She believes medicine is a way to experience perspectives other than your own by getting to know different people and learning about their lives. The relationships she builds with her patients build are what she believes makes her profession so rewarding.
Dr. Lee likes living in Portland because of the diversity, culture, food scene and proximity to nature. In her free time, Dr. Lee enjoys spending time with family, skiing, hiking, camping, traveling, and exploring new cultures and cuisine.
