"I've given reviews for Dr Lane already but not for my MRI review. Top notch visit as usual and there was no problem with my using my GoPro camera for the entire visit. This has also been a big help in showing my wife everything that was said, as well as refreshing my memory as to what went on. Very informative, never rushed, answered all my questions. Still have not made the decision yet but leaning towards having the repair done if the pain/symptoms don't subside in a week or so."

"I saw Dr. Lane for shoulder pain, fearing I had a torn rotator cuff. He said it didn't look TOO bad and we could try an injection and PT first, a plan I was happy to try! I'm 3 weeks in on the PT, and feeling much better. I'll definitely see Dr. Lane again, hopefully not for surgery, but should it become necessary I'd feel quite safe with him taking care of me!"

"Can’t express strongly enough how much I appreciate Dr. Lane and his staff. He repaired my pec 4 years ago and I recently saw him for a smaller bicep issue. Both times he has listened, made me feel better about my concerns, proved to be incredibly knowledgeable, and ultimately got me on the road to recovery. I have, and will continue to send anyone in need of orthopedic care his way."

"My visit with De. Lane was informative and he gave me a couple of alternatives to surgery before we go that route. Very personable and I would recommend him."
