Ratings for Dr. Herbert Lane
Frim x-rays an MRI Dr. Lane dianosed my chronic hip and shin pain as stemming from my back and prescribed an oral steroid and physiitherapy for mild spinal stenosis. I was pain free by the next day. Dr. Lane is knowledgeable and caring. I will go to him for other ortho issues.
He and Dr. Gorsen saved my ability to walk, among other functions. Thanks to both of them operating together on me, I have more quality of life than I would have otherwise. Don't get me wrong, no could have FIXED the mess that is my long term back injury, but they did a wonderful job and did it well, with compassion, honesty, and great skills.
He makes all patients sit and wait for him. The office staff told us after waiting for 2 hours he'd be running late by another hour. After getting into the office finally, we sat another 35 minutes. He is rude and only wants a quick fix surgery. Does not think about the long term effects but getting it fixed now. They schedule patients at the same time so each visit is basically first come first serve. Do not go to him!!!!!
He is a very well-known surgeon and very respected at repairing people from terrible accidents. He does not have good bedside manner. You will have to wait to get an appt. He does not like Workers Comp. so he gets upset easily and doesn't turn in necessary paperwork. He is an outstanding doctor!
Great guy, excellent surgeon. He's always overbooked though (the good ones always are), go in with your questions written down so he doesn't rush off before you can think of them. Bring something to read because it's always a long wait - but worth it.
