Dr Lee began his career in 2011 as a basic trainee. He worked at the Ipswich Hospital and then the Hervey Bay Hospital as a paediatric registrar.

Dr Lee’s fascination with the growth and development of children at their early stages of life is what inspired him to seek a career in paediatrics. He embraces the challenges that working with children brings, as no two children are the same, which makes finding the right treatment and seeing the positive results that much more rewarding.
