Jessica Lee, MDMedical DirectorHouse Call Service Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital
“I am so thankful for Harris Health House Call Service. It has been a blessing for my 48 year old quadriplegic son. The staff is amazing. Even when I have a challenging request, I am still treated with respect and dignity. They always try to get my questions answered one way or the other. They continue to assist me with meeting his medical needs. They all work as a team on his case to get things done. Dr. Jessica Lee, along with Theclar Omeh, Sinu Mathew, Moncellia Scott, Donna Stephens and other staff have all had a hand in my son's care. I feel they have all played a part in him having a longer life. This is truly appreciated. Before House Call Service, my son's life and my life were literally a living hell. I had nowhere to turn until you! Thanks one million times.”
