I commend Dr. Lee and all involved in my care while a patient of D.O.C. Dr. Lee is an honorable, caring, knowledgeable and comforting surgeon. I won't go into surgery specifics however I did have a successful back surgery by Dr. Lee and his team. I am still in need of additional procedures as my problems are multiple. I can't emphasize how wonderful the Valley Hospital staff is with such a clean and updated facility! Everyone I came in contact with treated me with the utmost CARE! Joseph Tripi

Dr. Daniel lee performed my back surgery on March 26. 2016. He and his team are fantastic! He fused my spine and I am now out of that awful pain that I had suffered with for years. Thank you so much dr. Daniel lee for everything you did for me. Sincerely cynthia hawkins

Rude and arrogant. Was not interested in anything I had to say

Very easy to talk to. Straightforward. Did a very good job, things went exactly as he described.

October of 2015 Dr. Lee performed a very serious lower spine operation which was the fusing of my vertebra. The before x-rays you could see the vertebra (I think it was the L4 or L5) tilting downwards at about 20 degrees. It was putting pressure on the nerves and I was limping on my left leg. Just to walk to the mailbox was a chore. At age 60 I was scared that the rest of my life was going to be spent this way and most likely it was going to get worse. After the operation I was amazed.

I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis that continued to worsen over time and I could barely move without a walker. I had been reluctant to have major surgery being 80 years old but the pain became so bad and no alternative treatments could help my situation. After meeting with Dr. Lee, I felt very confident in moving forward with the surgery. He is truly an expert surgeon and I would recommend him to anyone who needs spine surgery. I am grateful for the pain free life he has given me!
