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.

I recently had an emergency complication from my hernia needing surgery and Dr. Lane was my surgeon. She explained every step and made sure all my questions were answered. After my surgery while recovering at home she was available for any questions that I had, even calling later in the evening after her long day of surgeries. She was always professional as well as being kind and showing compassion. I was thankful for her care.

I had sleeve surgery with Dr. Lane on 5/24/16. I came out of surgery with no complications, virtually no pain and was out of the hospital in less than 3 days. She advised me before the surgery and told me how to prepare myself for surgery and explained every thing that occurred. She checked on me after surgery numerous times and made sure I was not only healing but also as comfortable as I could be. I now see her for periodic check-ins throughout the year and she addresses my progress/concerns
