Joyce Lee, M.D., M.A.S.

Pulmonologist and critical care specialist

Dr. Joyce Lee is a pulmonologist and critical care specialist, and the director of the Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) Clinic.

In addition to treating patients, Lee helps conduct research focusing on the role of gastroesophageal reflux and microaspiration (inhalation of small droplets of stomach contents) in the development and progression of pulmonary fibrosis.

Lee received her medical degree from Northwestern University in Chicago, Ill., and completed her internship and residency at the McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University. She completed her fellowship at UCSF. Before starting her fellowship, Lee was a post-doctoral research fellow in the UCSF Cardiovascular Research Institute.
