About Dr. Jenny Lee Español

Philosophy of Care

Dr. Lee's philosophy centers on excellence of care. She believes this goal requires dedication, commitment and passion from all members of the health care team, including not only a patient's physicians and nurses, but perhaps most importantly, from the patients themselves. She is a proponent of health care education and patient empowerment fostered by open lines of communications between patients and physicians as well as between physicians themselves. Although she is a specialist in kidney disease and focuses on preservation of kidney function, she believes firmly in the importance of preventative health care which unfortunately increases in complexity with the onset of kidney disease. Establishing sincere and frank relationships between patients and physicians are the foundation for these goals.
