Ratings for Dr. George D. Lane
Dr Lane operated on me on December 4th 2008. The very next day I was released from the hospital and I experienced great pain. I tried to call him and his backup but he was no where to be found. I went to the ER and they loaded me up with pain medication and sent me home. I went back the next day and I had to have more surgery to save my foot. I had severe nerve damage as a result of no blood flow and I still have great pain. Be very careful.
Dr Lane lied to me and has permanently disfigured my foot. He told me he was going to do one thing and then during the surgery did another. I will never be able to bend my two middle toes again due to Dr Lane tying off my tendons at the base of the toes instead of at the tip of the toes as he said he was going to. My foot constantly hurts when I walk and it has now been more than 6 months since the surgery.
I was so impressed with Dr. Lane - he was very patient and listened to my laundry list of issues as well as my concerns about what a previous doctor had said (this was a "second opinion" appointment). Everything he said made logical sense and he managed to allay my concerns. His staff was very knowledgeable and patient too!
Dr.Lane is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He cares about every patient and takes extra efforts to make sure that the patient receives the care they need. Even when I had insurance problems with approving a MRI, he took care of the issue himself by talking to them directly and making a strong case. He spent half an hour going over my analysis and answered all my questions without rushing and made me aware of all my options. He even called me directly after reviewing my old MRI data from a previous injury to the same area and gave me his opinion. I have not seen this kind of patient care and attention to the patient's needs anywhere else. I would highly recommend him.
