Jay Lee, D.V.M.

Head Veterinarian and Owner


A graduate of Seoul National University in South Korea, Dr. Lee has been practicing as a veterinarian for over 30 years. He began his work as a large animal veterinarian but found his passion to be in small animal. He has since then worked exclusively with pets, small and large, treating them with compassion and expertise for many years.

He had a dream when taking over Animal Clinic of Benson to create a safe and welcoming clinic where pets and owners alike feel as if they are part of the family, with personalized and comprehensive care at affordable prices.

Dr. Lee is an avid golfer, enjoys photography and the outdoors, and especially loves his family, which includes four grandchildren and many different family pets.
