Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Lumbar Fusion
Honest and professional. I feel great. 5 weeks back to work and only used the pain meds prescribed for post surgery (about 2 weeks). I'm about two and a half months post op and life is pretty much normal. Still healing but zero regrets. Thank you!

Dr Lantner was exceptional! Had cervical spine surgery and felt great from the moment I woke up from anesthesia . He was patient and very informative during our first visit and then made me feel confident and at ease just before the surgery. I would recommend him very highly!

I went to Dr. Lantner with a ruptured disc in my L5/S1 Which was pressing on all of my nerves in my leg so that I could not walk. With an outpatient surgery, Dr. Lantner Repaired the disc so that it was not pressing on anynerves and I was able to walk out of surgery pain-free. I highly recommend this skilled surgeon! His team is wonderful including his nurse practitioner and office staff!

Upon reading the reviews on Doctors webpage, I was very hesitant about going forward with my appointment. Dr. L spent a very intense fifteen minutes with me and gave me instructions to have a MRI. After those results, I was scheduled for Cervical surgery. The negative reviews were likely from patients who complain about every little thing and did not follow the strict pre-op instructions. Dr. Lanter was recommended by four of my physicians who I respect and trust with my life. I will return.

Staff at hospital was great. I woke up from a two level artificial disc procedure pain free except on my back neck muscles which isn't too bad. Incision is small and hoping recover keeps going well. Feeling back in my left arm not my finger though but time might help that too.

Did L4/L5 spinal fusion operation on me several weeks ago. Nothing but praise for this surgeon. He walked my wife and I through the process, step by step, and everything (so far) has gone as planned.
