Hello, my name is Dr. Lena S. Lee, I'm one of the pediatricians in the High Desert Medical Offices. Thank you for taking the time to visit my Web page.
I grew up in Canada but I've lived in California for more than 20 years--and yes, we do speak English in Canada; and no, the Canadian national anthem is not sung to the tune of "O Christmas Tree." But all kidding aside, I've wanted to be a doctor since high school and I've wanted to be a pediatrician since after my first clinical rotations in my third year of medical school. It can be challenging, as well as satisfying, and I truly believe that helping and caring for children helps everyone. My favorite color is green, I love spicy foods (especially Indian), my all-time favorite TV series is the "X Files," and I'm a strong believer in retail therapy (I'd like to think I'm helping the economy).
I believe in immunizations, preventive measures, and healthy living. I view myself as a child/patient advocate. I am a part of a large team of professionals that works toward taking care of our members. I believe that patients have a very significant role in their own health care.
I try to use my time efficiently, I have a commute to work and I love to read, so audio books have been a Godsend. And I've found that it's very important to spend time with family and friends, and those you love should be made a top priority. I drive a Hybrid car and recycle, which makes me feel like I'm doing my part for the environment.
