Interest:
Dr. Lee believes that nutrition and lifestyle play a huge role in her patient's medical condition and treatment plan. As an internist, her philosophy in practice involves understanding her patients as individuals and being able to relate their acute illnesses by addressing the underlying problems, cultures and lifestyles. Her education and work experiences in nutrition medicine, allows her to implement aggressive medical nutrition therapies to every condition. Her scope of practice range from malnutrition in cancer, specialized diets for the autoimmune and/or medication side effects to medical weight management for the obese.

She spends a lot of time in educating her patients as well as the community by seminars and corporate wellness. Her goal is to standardize the practice of nutrition and weight management by utilizing evidence-based information to her clients and the community.

Besides seeing patients in Thousand Oaks, Dr. Lee spends her Wednesday afternoons in Westwood at the UCLA Risk Factor Obesity Clinic, a medical weight loss clinic which provides an alternative weight loss regimen for clients.

Dr. Lee lives in Downtown LA and a is a proud mother of an all-white haired English Bulldog named Oggie Bubba.
