"Dr. Lane helped me heal quickly from a painful tennis elbow. He and his staff were professional and friendly. I was in and out of office in less than an hour on both visits. This included x-ray and fitting for brace. He knew how to treat it efficiently and effectively. I was on the mend in less than a month."
