Angel Lee, MD
Rutgers – Robert Wood Johnson Medical School
Dr. Angel Lee was born in Brooklyn, NY and grew up in Fort Lee, NJ. She attended New York University for undergrad, where she studied East Asian Studies and Chemistry. While a student at NYU, she taught at a non-profit youth organization that offers comprehensive services to at-risk and immigrant adolescents in downtown NYC. This experience was the stimulus for Angel’s initial career goal to be a teacher and ultimately ignited her passion for helping the underserved. She also taught abroad in South Korea.
After deciding that she wanted to help people in the capacity of a doctor, her journey took her to Rutgers – Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. Dr. Lee was motivated by the belief that the best doctors are also great teachers. She ultimately found her calling in family medicine, a specialty that is rooted in patient advocacy, education, and commitment to bettering the lives of entire families.
Dr. Lee is thrilled to be at Beth Israel because this program is truly the perfect fit and has everything she is looking for: opportunity to deliver quality healthcare to an urban underserved population, incredibly supportive group of residents and faculty, and rigorous training in an academic yet community-focused setting. Her special interests include women’s health and adolescent medicine.
During her spare time, Dr. Lee enjoys exploring NYC (theater, parks, museums, farmer’s markets, great food) and spending time with family and friends.
