Garry R. Lee, MD, Medical Director, The VIP Medical Clinic
In 2001, Family Practice Physician Garry R. Lee, MD, opened The VIP Medical Clinic & Wellness Center in Henderson, Nevada, just outside of Las Vegas. Dr. Lee was a 1990 graduate of The Ohio State University College of Medicine in Columbus, Ohio, and completed his Family Practice Residency at Grant Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio.
After graduation, Dr. Lee was commissioned as a Captain and Medical Officer in the United States Air Force to complete the service obligation for the prestigious USAF Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP). Dr. Lee was stationed at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, Nevada, served at the Mike O’Callaghan Federal Hospital, and was a Board Member for the American Cancer Society, which presented him with their Life Savers Award. When he was offered the SGH (Chief of Staff) position in Alaska or Japan, he resigned his commission as an Air Force Major to enter private practice in Las Vegas, culminating in the opening of the VIP Medical Clinic in 2001.
In 2002, the FDA approved Botox Cosmetic for wrinkles and by 2006, Dr. Lee was one of the top Botox Clinics in Nevada as well as the #1 Medical Practice in the State of Nevada for Restylane, the first HA cosmetic wrinkle filler. Dr. Lee became so skilled at cosmetic injections–Botox, Dysport, Juvederm, Restylane, Platelet-Rich Plasma, and Microneedling—that he left Family Practice to open Look Younger MD (www.LookYoungerMD.com), dedicated to helping you Look Younger, Without Surgery. He became the State of Nevada Physician and Nurse Instructor, a National Lecturer in minimally invasive medicine, an Amazon.com Medical Procedure Best Seller, and an Internationally Published Expert. By 2019, Dr. Lee was the WINNER of all 4 of the Top Cosmetic Injection Awards in the USA–selected over hundreds of the Best Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologists, and Cosmetic Physicians in the country.
In March 2020, the Coronavirus Pandemic struck Las Vegas. Dr. Lee closed his cosmetic medicine practice (www.LookYoungerMD.com) to dedicate himself to help with COVID-19 Testing once again, as The VIP Medical Clinic. He believes the greatest initial bottleneck here was the critical lack of Test Kits, which allowed the disease to proliferate unrecognized.
Dr. Lee believes the Federal Government will soon deliver thousands of Test Kits creating the second bottleneck. The cumulative need for COVID-19 Testing will overwhelm primary care physicians, Urgent Cares, and Hospital Emergency Rooms. Currently, patients can spend hours to be seen for COVID-19 Testing—completely exposed to getting COVID-19 infection just while waiting. The greatest need he observed was that there was no one primarily dedicated to serve those who had no medical insurance or physician.
To help, Dr. Lee created www.NeedACovid19Test.com using TeleMedicine to speed physician screening for COVID-19 Testing. Since screening is done online, there is no infectious exposure and waiting time is minimized in the safety and convenience of your own home.
