Dale Young Lee, MD, MSCE


"As a specialist in Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition, I care for a broad variety of conditions impacting the GI tract and the body's ability to digest foods. Medical conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease and celiac disease can be intimidating, but it is my privilege to come alongside patients and their families as we develop a comprehensive treatment plan and work towards getting back to good health. My particular area of expertise and research experience is in the role of diet in disease. This includes the thoughtful use of dietary therapy and studying the role of food additives in inflammatory bowel disease. I am a strong believer that diet plays a fundamental role in health and can be utilized as part of the therapeutic plan for many GI tract conditions. My goal is to help children achieve their potential and not be limited by their medical conditions."
