Dr. Lee joined the Wise Patient team in 2019 and is excited to care for patients in a model that highly values the patient-physician relationship. Dr. Lee is interested in people’s life stories. She strives to meet people where they are, understand the factors in their lives that influence their health and partner with them to move in the direction of their goals. She enjoys the full spectrum of adult medicine with a particular interest in caring for patients with diabetes.
“For me, the compelling part of medicine has always been the human connection.”
I love the intellectual challenge of a diagnostic conundrum and the marvel of a therapeutic breakthrough, but putting these in the context of a patient’s life story is what makes my job the best job in the world. I strive to connect with patients, understand their health as it fits within their life story and empower them to live their best life.
I spent the first 12 years of my career caring for hospitalized, medically complex patients undergoing surgery. I have a passion for caring for medically complex patients. At the same time, this experience has made me very dedicated to prevention and health promotion. I enjoy the full spectrum of general internal medicine and am excited to be returning to primary care and to the Capitol Hill neighborhood where I grew up.
Membership medicine is a good fit for me because it is built on the idea that the patient-physician relationship is the foundation of good medicine. At Wise Patient Internal Medicine I have the time to get to know my patients and the mandate to prioritize high quality patient care over all else.
When not at work, I am usually on the sidelines of a soccer field or otherwise spending time with my husband and our three kids. I am happiest when outdoors and seek out experiences in nature where I get to feel my smallness: star gazing, ocean going or snowshoeing in feet of fresh powder.
