Cindy B. Lee, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a family physician, my passion is to provide you with highly personalized healthcare with an emphasis on prevention, wellness and coordination of care. Practicing good medicine requires a partnership between doctor and patient – a partnership based on mutual trust and respect. As an MDVIP-affiliated primary care physician, I have more time to develop close relationships with my patients and work as a team, to formulate a wellness plan that will help you achieve your own, personal health goals. With over 30 years of practicing medicine in the community, I have cared for several generations of patients and their families. There are no short cuts to being healthy and no simple formulas or “one-size-fits-all” approach when it comes to the health of my patients. My intention is to achieve individualized care for the whole person – physical, emotional and social well-being.

My primary care practice, similar to concierge medicine, is located in Monterey, CA. I focus on all aspects of family medicine, with a special emphasis on women’s health, child/adolescent health, anxiety and depression.
