Ratings for Dr. Edward A. Layne
I went to dr Layne based on these reviews and unfortunately, I did not have a good experience with him or his office. I had to wait anywhere from 1.5-2.5hrs for any given appointment, including my colonoscopy. I visited regularly for 2-3 months during a severe flare and he never remembered who I was when I came into the office. I called the office panicked one day due to scary side effects I was having from medication. I asked to speak with Dr Layne or a nurse and was quickly dismissed, pushed to come in for an appointment nearly a week later. He had blood work at his office indicating I was severely anemic and no one ever called to inform me or have me come in for a visit. I only found out because I requested my blood work be sent to another doctor. Dr Layne did not help me at all and I’m still in search of a credible doctor to help push me out of this current U.C. flare.
Dr. Layne is a phenomal doctor who truly cares about his patients. He has been my GI Doctor for the past few years and I initially met him when I was hospitalized for GI issues. He takes the time to listen to his patients and is truly concerned about their overall well-being. He has given me dietary advise that has helped me tremendously and probably is saving my life. He is truly a blessing. You have to be patient when you schedule a visit because he takes his time with each of his patients, but it is definitely worth it.
Dr. Layne is a caring, knowledgeable and excellent physician. I am a physician myself and am very happy to have him as my gastroentaerologist. Previously I had a physician who would only give me medicine for the symptoms and would not explain anything. I did not feel treated properly. With doctor Layne we analize the problem and he makes sure I know what to do to improve my condition.
I am in love with Dr. Layne. He has always LISTENED to me sense my first visit. I had a multitude of symptons, and one by one, he has fixed. We are still working together to resolve the rest. But one very important thing he has taught me, is not to just 'take a pill' for my problems. My primary gave me high blood pressure meds, lipitor, and an anxiety meds. Just take them. Dr. Layne explained to me that they should of explored the reasoning behind my high blood pressure and chols and anxiety, rather than just putting me on meds for the rest of my life. So he is working with me on quitting smoking, losing weight and what to eat. And other ways to lower my stress. He is an astonishin man. My best friend went with me to one of my appointments and after she said "I wish he could be my primary, or that I had GI issues just so he can be my doctor". Enough said. But seriously, when you go to a doctor who loves to prescribe, remember, there are other ways to get your health back.
