Patient Comments (5)
Queens Village, NY |
I am a pianist and have been to Dr Lane. He was superior to anyone I have seen. I trust him implicitly.
in Port Washington, NY |
He was very patronizing with an almost total lack of affect. Gave me cortisone injections without freezing my hand to numb it. Caused me great pain. He barely blinked.
in Oak Beach, NY |
Would highly recommend Dr Lane. I had surgery on my hand and have seen him for follow ups. HIs professionalism and kindness made it a lot easier.
in Asheville, NC |
Dr. Lane reconstructed my hand in 1995 with a 14 hour surgery to remove a malignant cyst from my left wrist. He saved my life. The cancer was aggressive. It was a terrifying experience for me. Well, over 20 years later, I need a tune up. The first one. I broke a screw and 1/2 of it is being removed April 13 2016. I will never forget his kindness, patience and eagerness to make things right. His staff as well. Thank you Dr. Lane, the doctors here in NC are amazed at what you did! Theresa Wolf
