Dr. John Lee

Surgeon, Vascular Surgery Specialist

Dr. John Lee is a board-certified general and vascular surgeon. Upon completing his vascular surgery fellowship, Dr. Lee joined Desert Vein and Vascular Institute in 2015. He was born in Seoul, South Korea. He graduated from medical school with high honors before specializing in vascular surgery.
