Welcome to my website.  I've thrown a few things of interest here.  This isn't a professional website by any means.  I am a physician (Surgeon and Acupuncturist) in Modesto, California, and to balance my life, I enjoy my life-long hobby of playing violin and piano.  Playing music for me balances the artistry of Botox injections, filler injections, acupuncture needling, hernia surgeries, gallbladder operations, and breast cancer operations.  I work at Surgical Artistry in Modesto, California with my wife Dr. Tammy, Plastic Surgeon


Calvin Lee, MD, Guest Concertmaster, July 17, 2009, Schindler's List Theme Solo, Taipei, Taiwan (National Concert/Music Hall), with the Taipei Civic Symphony.  Another solo in Star Wars (not shown).

I was pleasantly surprised to see this on YouTube.  I actually didn't know it was recorded.  I'm grateful I had a chance to really hear my violin against an orchestra.  This is a relatively new violin for me, although I've had it for about 10 years.  It is a violin by Francois Louis Pique, France - Late 1700's.

I realize now, that I had the camera on the wrong setting - the dynamics have been equalized.
  I guess I should re-record it sometime

Brown University wanted me to answer some questions about my life and why I chose their school/medical program.  I'm in the process of re-recording this so I don't look so tired.  I recorded the above/below video at 4AM in the morning (they are the same video).  Here's the youtube version of it.
