Outpatient Services for Mount Sinai

Queens, as announced on April 9 by

Chief Medical Officer and Vice

President of Medical Affairs David

M. Nierman.

“I’m very excited by the opportunities at Mount Sinai Queens,” said Lee. “When you come to see your provider, you’re actually seeing a team, a small ‘family’ who knows you.”

Raised in Woodside and Astoria, Lee has returned to Queens after studying at Yale, and completing her residency at Harvard. A National Health Service Corps Scholar, she spent the last six years working on the Navajo Reservation in Northeastern Arizona. Board certified in both internal medicine and pediatrics, Lee fits in with the medical practices concept of taking care of a whole family.

“We are happy to welcome Dr. Lee,” said Nierman. “She is a great addition to our group which focuses on our patients to provide continuous, coordinated, quality care under one roof. We are a home base for families.”

In addition to the handling of emergencies and planned surgeries, Mount Sinai Queens also offers a range of outpatient services through its medical practices-Family Health Associates and Physician Associates. In both locations, patients receive focused, individualized care from a team so that they can get all the medical care they need as outpatients.
