Dr. Lanes is personable but his office is horribly run. I have been waiting for THREE WEEKS for a call from his office to my insurance company. I am now sicker than I was four months ago because I can't get the medication he prescribed me. Today, when I called his office, I was directed to an answering service that directed me to a 1-800 number. The registry didn't have Dr. Lanes so I couldn't even leave a message. Poor poor poor medical care.

I saw Dr. Lanes yesterday. He has excellent bedside manner and spent ample time explaining my issues. I highly recommend him.

Off all the things said about this practice I have to agree 100% with how the front desk is handled. I waited very patiently on the line for more than 30 minutes and then i get an attitude from the girl because i mentioned it to her. On top of that the doctor does not follow up with the results, she puts the same girl on the front desk (which i bet is not a doctor) to explain them to you. She not only did not address the problem i had but just read a piece of paper and send me on my way.

I had to wait 1 hr 40 minutes to see him and he saw me for less than ten minutes. He kept cutting me off and wouldn't even let me speak. He just assumed he knew what my health issue was. And he offered me no comfort or explanation. Just seemed like he wanted to get on to the next appt. horrible experience!

I have seen the Dr. in the past for routine colonoscopy and it was acceptable. He is a talented Dr. but the wait times and efficiency of the office staff are awful. I usually wait over an hour. Can't leave messages because the mailbox is full. No one is ever available to talk to. I think it's a problem with overbooking. We are switching to a new Dr. and I do not recommend this practice.

Dr Lanes was very helpful and knowledgeable in his scope of medicine, as well as his explanation of reasoning concerning my condition. I never felt rushed or pressured during my visit in any way, whatsoever. A truly pleasurable visit with an old-fashioned Physician, the way going to a Dr should be. Immaculate office, with a friendly staff, & highly recommended! Greatly Appreciated! !

Dr Lanes is the most incredible Physician, with an extremely gentle bedside manner. He spent over an hour with his thorough examination reviewing my symptoms and giving me suggestions on the proper treatment for my condition!. I would highly recommend Dr. Lanes to anyone who wants a caring and knowledgeable Physician!. Friendly and helpful staff as well.
