Dr. Dan Lee is very thorough and takes as much time as needed to explain your diagnosis. He reviewed my x-rays and MRIs with me in great detail. He was honest about treatment options and I was pleased he agreed with a conservative approach based on my age & symptoms. Highly recommend!

I just had spinal surgery in June 2020. Dr. Lee performed the surgery. He was great very nice and patient. He took the time to explain the benefits of the surgery and any possible risks. I am very glad I had the surgery. I would definitely recommend Dr. Lee.

I have not met Dr. Lee I’ve been seen by Dr. Lee yet name is Linda Fowler. I was seen by his assistant Kathleen M White a PRN, and she was awesome. If this Kathleen in white his assistant is anything like that to Lee all I can say is Dr. Lee must be one outstanding doctor became his assistant , Nothing height did a thorough check up on me she checked my whole body she really cared she really cared a lot she gave me referrals to doctors and got me going in the system and this was something I haven’t had in many years with a new doctor. I’m looking forward to seeing Dr. Lee but she was outstanding!!!!! Lunda G Fowler!

The doctor spent maybe 90 seconds actually seeing me. Tried to inject me with a medication I am allergic to. Did not feel listened to.

Dr.lee is fantastic! Five years ago he put my neck together after a VERY serious car accident. My disks were shattered and my neck very broken. Dr. Lee saved my spinal cord and repaired me so that I would have the best recovery possible. He was extremely confident and skilled . I have had great mobility and not nearly as much residual pain as I thought I would have. My neck has remained stable for 5 years. Yesterday when I saw him he was as kind and compassionate as I remember. He truly is a great doctor and human being. I have the utmost respect and love for him.
