Dr. Lee prefers using bioidentical hormone replacement or natural hormones instead of synthetic hormones that are often prescribed by physicians. There are few physicians using bioidentical hormones in the Rio Grande Valley but they are commonly used in larger metropolitan areas. Bioidentical hormones are identical to those hormones produced in our body. Thus Dr. Lee likes to call them “human identical hormones.” Many of them are FDA approved but there are some that are compounded by accredited pharmacies that are made to order by a physician. They are usually compounded with specific amounts of hormone depending on the patients needs. The hormones may be estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid, and cortisol. He uses creams and pellets.
Since completing residency training in both family medicine and ob/gyn, he is well equipped in managing hormones that effect the entire body. He has also received training from Dr. Erika Schwartz. She is a leading expert in bioidentical hormone therapy out of New York City.
Not only do woman that are suffering from menopause symptoms greatly benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement, but also premenopausal women experiencing symptoms of lack of energy, weight changes, depression, loss of libido, and other symptoms can benefit as well.
At our office, we evaluate each patient individually to assess them for the specific hormones they may be deficient in and then prescribe the hormones they need. Our goal is to provide patients with healthy lifestyles and personal well-being.

Dear Dr. Lee on behalf of my family we would like to thank you endlessly for performing a top of the line surgery on my wife Lovely… You are a true master of your profession and I hope you will be part of South Texas Medical Community for a long time to come. Thank you endlessly and god bless you and your family.
Dr. Lee is by far the best ob/gyn in South Texas. What a wonderful disposition. With intelligence, patience, and a kind heart he was there with us to guide us every step of the way. There really is no amount of accolades that can be written that reflects the gratitude we have for him and his wonderful staff. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU Dr. Lee, you are truly the BEST!
I love your staff! They’re so sweet! You wouldn’t be able to tell if any of them are having a bad day.
You are an answer to prayer for our family who thought that we would never find a doctor in the valley who allows VBA2C. We are thankful for the practice and I believe ministry that you have here!
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr. Lee VERY HIGHLY to anyone. He is a thorough, thoughtful, kind, and godly man who truly cares for his patients.
Great physician!!! Dr. Lee has a tremendous understanding in female hormone issues, which has helped change my life around. Highly recommend him to any woman looking for a doctor who listens, cares, and has the patient’s best interest in mind.
Many thanks to you Dr. Lee. This (birth) has been an amazing experience and I’m deeply grateful for your care, compassion and expertise. Forever grateful.
I feel very lucky to have found such an awesome doctor! There needs to be more out there like you. Thanks!
Thank you Dr. Lee for performing a “Natural C-section” on me. The experience provided Topher and I the ability to see our baby being born and allowed us an opportunity for immediate bonding with Tucker as he was placed directly on my chest. I NEVER thought that birthing through a cesarean section could be like this.
Thank you for everything Dr Lee!! You were a blessing & made this all worth every moment!!
