Gastroenterology (GI) Care for Women

In a traditionally male-physician-dominated field, Dr. Kristen Lee is one of only a few double board-certified female gastroenterologists (GI) in our community with extensive practice experience and published original research providing quality care to both men and women. According to published data, less than 15% of the nation’s practicing gastroenterologists are women. Dr. Kristen hopes to be a role model for future female gastroenterologists because many women in New York City prefer an office visit with a female gastroenterologist and colonoscopist.
