Lee is a breast fellowship-trained breast surgeon with 14 years of surgical experience, bringing a multidisciplinary perspective to treating breast cancer.

Lee brings expertise to her new position, having served as assistant director of Breast Health at NYU Winthrop Hospital in Mineola, where she practiced for four years.
From 2003 to 2014, Lee was a member of the surgical staff and served as acting director of the Breast Health Center at New York Presbyterian Queens. During that time, she was also an assistant professor of surgery in Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology at Weill Medical College of Cornell University.
