I had a wonderful experience in Dr. Lee's care. I was diagnosed with a vestibular schwannoma and within a few months I had an appointment for surgery to remove it. At the first initial appointment, he was very good at explaining all of my options and what would be best for me. He answered all of my questions and concerns clearly. Though a big decision, I felt confident with the choice to go forward with surgery. Surgery went amazing and he was able to remove the entire tumor. Within two days I was back home recovering! Post surgery he and his team have been very responsive to my questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Lee! He is an amazing doctor and I am very grateful to have found him.

After suffering from SSCD and also additional impairments from a failed surgery in CT a few years earlier with little post-op care, I thankfully found my way to Dr Lee & his team at Mass Eye & Ear. I found Dr Lee to be extremely knowledgeable, experienced, humble, honest, and thorough in his assessment and in his surgical skill. Going forward with corrective surgery (middle fossa craniotomy & revision transmastoid) at Mass Eye & Ear has been a life-restoring experience! The entire process from beginning to end—office staff, radiology, surgical, recovery, surgical floor #11, and post-op care—have all been beyond satisfactory! Grateful for Dr. Lee and his team at Mass Eye & Ear!

Dr. Lee diagnosed and corrected SCDS for me after suffering with that condition for at least 10years. His expertise and skill in this field are phenomenal. Changed. My. Life. If SCDS is a concern for you, run, don’t walk, to see Dr. Lee. He takes the time to listen, and explain things which explains why he is frequently running behind in his office hours. Don’t give up.

Dr Daniel J. Lee is an outstanding human being. He is so smart, empathetic, a skilled listener and surgeon. He successfully repaired my left ear SCDS at Mass Eye and Ear in September 2020. The experience from pre-op to healing at home with his team's support was five star.

I could write pages and pages on how grateful I am for Dr. Lee’s expertise and the positive impact it had on my son’s life, but I think this review will be most impactful if I break it down into high level bullets: • I heard about Dr. Lee at a social event and made an appointment with him immediately. The reason behind my son’s hearing loss was unknown and Dr. Lee performed an exploratory surgery. • During the surgery, it was discovered that my son needed a stapes implant. This is a very uncommon finding in children – and as I write this review, Dr. Lee was the first to complete the successful implant. The success story is my son. • Result: My son’s hearing has continued to improve since the surgery. His grades went from average to straight As and his athletic ability went from better than average to spectacular; both a result from being able to understand his teachers and coaches. Words cannot express the gratitude my son I have for Dr. Lee and his expertise.

Dr. Lee is courteous, patient, happy to share as much detailed information as I request about my condition. He is direct when needed (I have a condition that could mean the sudden loss of hearing in one ear), but also optimistic : my situation is stable and could remain the same for many years. So I feel as if I am in very good hands and I trust him completely.

My inner ear condition was so serious and complex, that multiple ENT’s declined to perform the surgery. Ultimately, I was referred to Dr. Daniel Lee as the surgeon with the best qualifications and experience to handle my case. I was extremely nervous during my first meeting with Dr. Lee. However, he took his time to explain my condition in great detail using MRI results and CAT scans, and mapped out a surgical plan to remove my inner ear mass and restore my hearing to its normal levels. His confidence and professionalism were very reassuring and I felt I was in the very best hands for my situation. The two surgeries are behind me now and I couldn’t be happier with the result. I am a huge fan of Dr. Daniel Lee’s and would highly recommend him to anyone facing serious inner ear issues. I am so thankful to have had access to his kind of talent.

My son has a very rare cochlea shape that caused him to loss his hearing. Dr. Lee helped us a lot with making the decision about our son’s CI. He was patient and answering all of our questions about the surgery. He followed up with us after the surgery as well,and still answering all of our questions until today. We highly recommended him.

I would like to thank everyone who was involved in the planning and executing of my recent ENDOSCOPIC TYMPANOPLASTY procedure, which was conducted at Massachusetts Eye and Ear (MEE), on 26 July 2019. Once again the staff, at MEE, were very accommodating and knowledgeable; which again made the process a pleasurable one. I am happy to report that the hearing in my right makes me feel like I have been born again; I cannot wait to have the procedure conducted on my left ear. It was interesting to read the DESCRIPTION OF PROCEDURE IN DETAIL, which explained of how the procedure is conducted.

He did an amazing job fixing my hearing problem. Prior to seeing him, I had lost all hope and accepted that an infection had permanently damaged my hearing and that my current hearing was going to be the new normalcy. It was a long surgery, but he was able to fix a complicated issue and now I am hearing much better these days. He and his whole staff were extremely courteous, helpful, they explained every detail and answered every question I had from the very first visit, the day of the surgery, and every follow up visit. Thank You! I would absolutely recommend him..mc

I loved Dr. Lee—he is everything I would want my doctor to be. He did a cochlear implantation for me and it could have not gone better. I found him to be warm, caring, patient and understanding. My circumstances were different from most and I travelled across country to have him to my surgery. I could not recommend him more highly.

Dr. Lee performed cochlear implant surgery on me three days ago. I am fortunate to be the benefactor of his skills and abilities, having experienced no pain or discomfort and only caring, compassion and professionalism from him and the entire surgical team at Mass Eye & Ear. Assuming my journey continues to successful activation, Dr. Lee will have been the person to ameliorate the worst challenge of my life, hearing loss. For that gift, I will never be able to repay him.
