“Restoring function and quality of life are the basic principles of physiatry. That is the driving force behind every patient visit. In my relationship with a patient, it is important to know what really drives and motivates a patient. The goal is not just to treat the symptom, but to rehab the whole patient properly so that he/she can enjoy their life.”

Dr. Anthony Lee joined the practice in 2005 after completing an interventional spine fellowship at Southwest Spine and Sports. Upon graduating from Dartmouth College, he returned to his home state of Georgia for graduate school and received a Masters of Science in Microbiology from Georgia State University. He then obtained his medical degree from Mercer University School of Medicine. Dr. Lee completed his Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residency at the University of Pennsylvania where he served as chief resident for two years. He is Board Certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Board Certified in Pain Medicine. In addition to the spine, Dr. Lee has a special interest in joint pain and sports related injuries.

Dr. Lee moved to Arizona after training in Pennsylvania and Georgia. He grew up playing competitive tennis, but he now also enjoys golf and other outdoor activities.

Our Patients

Dear Dr Komar, I wanted to express my heartfelt appreciation for your help in achieving one of my lifetime goals, completing an Ironman Triathlon.  Without your help, I would not have been able to even participate in the event. Late last year, I began training for a “bucket-list” physical challenge that I had long dreamed of completing, a 140.6 mile Ironman Triathlon.  About 3 months into that training, I developed tendonitis in my right hip and physical therapy simply wasn’t relieving the pain.  We met after I learnt about PRP. Admittedly I was skeptical. You took the time to provide a detailed explanation of my tendonitis and how PRP works and showed enormous patience in outlining the recovery process. The results were even better than I had hoped. A fairly painless procedure, two weeks of recovery time, and I was back to running, biking, and swimming, with no pain. At this point, I consider you and your staff miracle workers! I know that medical outcomes can be measured in many different ways. My measurement was simple – 140.6 mile Ironman Louisville completed in 14:45 (time) without the hip pain that had so impacted my daily life. Priceless! Dr Komar, I am eternally grateful for what you did in helping me achieve my dream. Thank You! — Kelli M
