What clients are saying...

"Lee works well under short deadlines. I have been able to have Lee do an exhibit
turnaround in hours so that I can show a jury. His illustrations have contributed
substantially in helping me teach the medicine and anatomy and physiology to
the jury. He's professional, and he's just simply very good at what he does."

                             Scott P. Whonsetler / Whonsetler & Johnson PLLC / Louisville, KY

"Lee Wade has been my 'go to' medical illustrator for over 20 years. I have rarely gone
to trial in that time without one or more of Lee's illustrations to support my case.  Lee is
not only a talented artist, he is diligent, accurate, fair, fast and local. He has a firm grasp
of both medical and legal issues. I have been pitched many generic or national medical
illustration services over the years, but none could provide the level of service which I
have routinely experienced from Lee."

                             John W. Phillips / Phillips Parker Orberson & Moore P.L.C. / Louisville, KY

"Lee has worked diligently on creating some of the finest medical illustrations I have
seen for publication in a wide variety of medical peered reviewed journals, textbooks and monographs.  He has been our exclusive artist working with our faculty in developing
these medical drawings that have expertly illustrated a broad pallet of areas in the
cervical, thoracic, lumbar spine, and pelvis" 

                             John R. Dimar II, MD, Norton Leatherman Spine Center / Louisville, KY

"For the past 20 years, Lee Wade has helped me establish an infrastructure with several
medical device companies. I've used Lee's illustrations for patent drawings, educational
illustrations in power point presentations and on websites he has developed. Lee is an
incredibly versatile artist, he was able to design and produce marketing materials for
many products I have developed, package design with DFU's and a trade show booth."

                             Ronald J. Thompson, MD, FACOG / Ft. Thomas, Kentucky

"Lee's illustrations have been an integral part of my slide shows, papers, and video
presentations.  He is a great resource!"
