Dr. John Lee personally experienced the healing power of chiropractic care as a patient while he was a college student. After being rear-ended in an automobile collision by a drunken driver, Dr. Lee began having back pain for the first time in his life. Knowing something was not right, he sought the care of a chiropractor. This was not the first time Dr. Lee had seen a doctor for his spine however. While in junior high school, he was diagnosed with scoliosis (abnormal curvature of the spine) by the school's nurse and was referred to an orthopedic doctor for evaluation. The doctor x-rayed and examined Dr. Lee and confirmed the scoliosis. However, the doctor felt that no treatment was necessary and that they would just monitor the condition from time to time. Upon evaluation by this first chiropractor, it was revealed that the pain in Dr. Lee's back was definitely related to his pre-existing scoliosis. He received a course of chiropractic treatment and was able to get out of pain. However, Dr. Lee still occasionally experiences similar back pain due to his scoliosis and requires regular chiropractic care to maintain a healthy spine. Looking back to the time of his original diagnosis during junior high school, he wishes he would have been referred to a chiropractor or had known about the benefits of chiropractic care. Scoliosis is best corrected with chiropractic care during adolescence. Therefore, Dr. Lee feels confident that if he had known about chiropractic during his younger years, that he would not have to deal with his chronic episodes of back pain today.
Dr. Lee has been in practice since 2002. He received his chiropractic education at Palmer College of Chiropractic-West in San Jose, California, a sister school of the original Palmer College of Chiropractic located in Davenport, Iowa. Being a southern California native, he attended the University of California, San Diego, earning a bachelor's degree in the field of Physiology and Neuroscience. After receiving his chiropractic doctorate from Palmer West, Dr. Lee honed his clinical skills while working in various successful chiropractic clinics in the bay area. Dr. Lee now resides and practices in Irvine and is committed to being one of the premier healthcare providers in the community. Outside of his practice, Dr. Lee's enjoys being a family man and spends most of his time with wife and two young daughters.

He accepted treatment and received regular adjustments for several months, after which he became migraine free!
