Review of Dr. Lancaster

- in Hendersonville, TN |

Dr. Lancaster performed what I believe is called a Thoracoscopic Wedge Resection on my right upper lung lobe for a spiculated lung nodule. He was very informative and answered all my questions and made me feel very confident of his expertise. He told me exactly how he would proceed step by step and what he would do depending on what he found. I had heard all kinds of stories about removing chest tubes. When he did it, WOW, I felt nothing! A talented surgeon you can trust. He's awesome

Review of Dr. Lancaster

- in Cedar Hill, TN |

I was fortunate to meet Dr. Lancaster by way of several referrals . After suffering months of pain due to blocked arteries, he assured me he could help me. In a "tell it like it is" down to earth conversation he explained what he could do, when he could do it and about how long it would take. I entered the hospital on a Wednesday for an Aorto-Bifemoral Surgery. Six days later I was at home , using a walker and experiencing very little pain from surgery.

Review of Dr. Lancaster

- in Bowling Green, KY |

I have been seeing Dr Lancaster for 10 years and he has been excellent in all he has done for me. He has replaced arteries in both of my legs and both are doing well. I am an RN and I know a good doctor when I see one. I would recommend him a million times a day if I had the opportunity.
