Dr Lee just did my 3 disc lumbar spinal fusion on 11/02/2016. Dr Lee prepared me for everything that could go wrong and the pros and cons of such a big surgery. 15 days post op and I feel so much better. No more pain in my lower back or my leg. Thank you Dr Lee you have given me my life back. You are a true gift to the medical field.

After 10 years waiting for Workers Comp to fix a problem they promised to fix. Over 20 doctors that reviewed my case and suggested everything from message therapy, chiropractic adjustment to over 10 spinal injections to relieve the pain. 10 years of drug therapy from aspirin to morphine, it was Dr. Lee that finally asked me what it was I wanted and suggested surgery as the very last option . Dr. Lee gave me back my life and a drug free prison I was in. Thank you Sir, Thank you.

Dr. Lee is the only doctor that I have ever completely trusted. He genuinely cares about his patients and does everything he can for them. If you have a question he takes the time to answer it. I've seen many doctors, but none are as professional, knowledgeable, and caring as him. His staff is also amazing.

Saw dr. Lee at NOSC. Didn't like the way the office ran but Dr. Lee was amazing. He performed 2 level fusion on my husband which was very complex due to his anatomy and severity of his nerve impingement. His result was great and he is atleast 80 plus % better and can finally lead a more normal life with much less pain. He was meticulous and gave us realistic expectations. Couldn't be happier with his performance and the result!

I was referred to Dr Daniel Lee from my pain management (Dr.Andrew Kim) and I have been very impressed with my result. Dr Lee has preformed back fusion surgery and I am 10 days out and I am already walking quarter of a mile. (I have not been able to walk in years) I am very impressed with Dr. Lee, he tells you the way it is. While in the hospital, his bed side manners are exceptional, he was there for me every day. Thank you Dr Kim, Margaret

The visit to him was a complete and utter disappointment. He walked in with his team and immediately said, so "everything looks great from what he could see".....then he looks at the Mri and says oh wow, u have a large herniation at c5-6, so blasé and matter of fact, no care, no feeling no sense of confidence in him.....move on from him, he was pathetic, uncaring and cold. DO NOT USE THIS DR IF U CARE ABOUT YOURSELF, HE OBVIOUSLY COULD CARE LESS AND JUST IS IN IT FOR MONEY...shame on u doc

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!
