    The doctor and nurse went out of their way to make my child feel safe and comfortable. Talking about topics of my child's choice to help distract her during a procedure she was very nervous about. They were patient, kind and explained everything as they went so there were no surprises. The doctor was well informed and answered all my questions.

    Amazing and a wonderful person! Compassionate and caring

    We always feel good about visits with Dr. Lee, and the hospital staff are friendly and understand children. I wish the gender clinic had more of a team approach with MSW and psychiatrist, info sessions, information handouts, etc. But this is not related to Dr. Lee, who is caring, attentive, and sharp.

    We love the gender clinic at UCSF. They are knowledgeable and affirming.
    May 25, 2022
    Please warn future families that their child will need seven days of rest before they make the appointment. Not knowing that until two days before was a very big deal for my child.

    Everyone was so polite
    Mar 22, 2022
    The office is very clean and the staff are very courteous.
    Mar 15, 2022
    My only complaint would be that we had to wait 5 months to get an appointment.
    Mar 15, 2022
    We remain frustrated by how hard it is to schedule appointments. We'd love to see this practitioner on the east bay!
