About Us

Located in Havre de Grace, Maryland, J. T. Lee, MD, PA was founded by Dr. Jean T. Lee in 1992. In 2006, he was joined by his son, Dr. Benjamin Lee, and it was a father-son practice until Dr. Jean Lee’s recent retirement in 2015. At that time, our practice was happy to welcome our nurse practitioner, Jennifer Turpen. Our practice is focused on Internal Medicine and Primary Care for adults.

By remaining a small private practice, we are dedicated to personalized care for each patient, without being beholden to any other entities. Our top priority is the health and well-being of our patients. Our practice philosophy is helping patients to help themselves. By focusing on patient education, we believe that patients will be more motivated to get healthy and be more compliant with their treatment. We do NOT believe in a “one size fits all” approach to health care. Every patient is different and requires unique considerations. Also, we believe that all treatment decisions should be made together with the patient, taking into account their individual concerns and situations.

Both Dr. Benjamin Lee and Jennifer Turpen are currently accepting new patients. We make every effort to make sure that all routine follow-up visits are with the SAME provider to maintain continuity of care, and to develop strong provider-patient relationships. We look forward to meeting more members of our community and helping them to lead healthy and happy lives.
