About Caroline Lee, M.D.

Caroline J Lee, MD, CAQSM is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Rehabilitation Medicine at Cornell University with board certifications in rehabilitation medicine and primary care sports medicine. She specializes in the management of acute and chronic sports injuries, concussions, injury prevention, and neurodiagnostic studies. She serves as a consultant for a number of soccer leagues and community sports organizations. She is a firm believer in the ethos "exercise is medicine" and loves treating patients of all ages and experience.


Dr. Lee completed her undergraduate education at Dartmouth College. She also completed a post-baccalaureate at Drexel University in Interdisciplinary Health Sciences and a Master's in Nutrition at Columbia University. Still not satisfied with her ability to care for patients, she then pursued a medical degree at St. George's University School of Medicine where she discovered her passion for non-operative sports medicine. Dr. Lee graduated cum laude and went on to complete her residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) at SUNY Downstate Medical Center. During her training she provided sideline coverage for PSAL football, amateur mixed martial arts events, USA boxing, the New York City Marathon, and the NY Metropolitan Women's Soccer League.


Dr. Lee continued her training at United Health Services in Sports Medicine where she covered Binghamton University's NCAA Division 1 Men's and Women's basketball, soccer, lacrosse, wrestling, swimming, diving, cross country, and track. After her fellowship was complete, Dr. Lee moved back to the New York City area and has continued to cover local soccer leagues in Manhattan and Brooklyn as well as larger events like the New York City Marathon and Half Marathon.


As a non-operative sports medicine and physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist, Dr. Lee believes in a multi-disciplinary approach towards the treatment and prevention of injuries. She works collaboratively with each patient to help them to return to the activity or activities they love. Her practice is augmented by her training in ultrasound guided diagnostics and its use for interventional procedures. She is active in several professional societies such as the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, Association of Academic Physiatrists, International Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, and the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
