    Following medical school, he performed his internship in medicine in upstate New York. He completed his neurology residency at the University of California at Davis, with his final year as Chief Resident. He decided during this time to focus on headache medicine and completed the first fellowship in headache medicine at the University after receiving an award grant from the American Headache Society to sponsor his research on migraine and multiple sclerosis. This project was presented to the American Headache Society at their annual national conference and published it in the medical journalHeadache. He also attended a nationally sponsored mini-stroke fellowship during his fellowship at the University, where he partook in increasing his understanding of stroke and upcoming advances in stroke care. He was appointed assistant staff physician for the University and participated within the Headache Clinic. In his final year at UC Davis, he attended a national stroke mini-fellowship.

    After completion of his residency, he and his family moved to southern California as he took a position with Kaiser Permanente and directed the regional headache clinic alongside his general neurology clinic. He became a regional Headache Champion for the group. He undertook and updated the stroke program during his tenure . He left the Kaiser organization to take part in creating and establishing the neurology department for Mission Internal Medical Group in 2007.

    He continues to stay active in headache medicine as he maintains membership in the major headache medicine organizations and is part of the headache section within the American Academy of Neurology. He is one of the original members of the Headache Cooperative of the Pacific, an organization established for promoting education and communication in headache care. He is active within Mission Hospital at both campuses of Laguna Beach and Mission Viejo.

    We are confident about any advice that *Dr. Gee gives us regarding [Name]'s care. He is knowledgeable about all of [Name]'s medical issues (there are many) and comfortable in dealing with a person with severe developmental delays.
    *Dr. Gee is excellent in all respects.
    He is very busy.
    Dr. Gee needs to be more communicative, explaining his thoughts on the patient's condition and possible treatments, and reasons for his recommendations, without the patient having to ask first.
    This visit Dr. Gee touched on new procedures to consider for my Essential Tremors. I came away hopeful and with possible decisions to make about treating my tremors.
