During the course of his career Dr. Lee has developed a philosophy of community based sports medicine. He believes that any sports medicine specialist should be working with athletes throughout all phases of care. This includes performing lectures to coaches and athletes focused on improving performance and preventing injuries, standing on the sidelines of various sporting events performing triage and caring for injured athletes, providing physical therapy rehabilitation in his own clinic, and referring patients to other area specialists when necessary. His mission is to provide individualized, evidence-based care that allows all patients to attain maximum performance and function whether their problem is due to acute injury, overuse, surgery or degeneration.
In addition Dr. Lee has over thirty years of experience in physical therapy as an educator and provider of skilled therapy in an outpatient rehabilitation setting. Over the course of his career he has cared for athletes and patients with complex medical issues, amputations, neurological diseases, and traumatic injuries. One of his favorite sayings is “If you can get your body into my clinic, I can treat you.”
Dr. Lee started a physical therapy management company which managed an outpatient orthopedic clinic in Danbury for almost a decade. He started Hat City Physical Therapy in 2016 in an effort to work more closely with the local community and he is proud to be the premier sports medicine provider in the greater Danbury area. He also is the owner of AON Physical Therapy & Wellness, with four offices in New York including Brewster, Mahopac, Somers and White Plains.
