Dr. Laneve was excellent answered all questions. Explained surgery well. I will highly recommend him to anyone that needs his service.
Patient | March 1, 2017

I have utmost confidence in Dr LaNeve, his diligence in pursuing the best course of action for my overall health (not just the hernia repair I came to see him about), his thoroughness in patiently explaining the issues and options and the skill to perform surgery, along with the excellent staff he employs, to deliver best results. He has my highest recommendation!

Dr. Laneve provided the most excellent care possible.

Takes time to discuss my situation.
Patient | January 24, 2017

Dr. Laneve was my surgeon for an umbilical hernia repair. At 49 yrs. old, it was my first surgery ever so I was nervous. He instilled confidence from the start!

There is no need to see any other surgeon. Excellent DR. I tell everyone about him and have actually compared scars with other people who have had their thyroid removed. My provider wins hands down. Never any pain, had it out on Tuesday went home on Wednesday and was back to work on Thursday feeling great.

Dr. Laneve did a fantastic job explaining options and details to me and took his time listening to my concerns and answering my questions. Thank you!
Patient | September 6, 2016

I have NEVER had a doctor, much less a surgeon be so open & explain everything in layman's terms.
Patient | August 18, 2016

Very smart doctor. Explained so I understood surgery and test.
Patient | August 10, 2016

Considering I first met Dr. LaNeve in the ER on 12/26/16, I was impressed & very comfortable with him as my surgeon. As a former RN, MSN, I have worked w/surgeons & felt many surgeons are arrogant & did not have very good bedside manners.
Patient | August 10, 2016

His attitude came off as I was accusing him of wrong doing, when I was just concerned for my health.
Patient | August 2, 2016

He is a wonderful surgeon! #6. None needed.
Patient | May 26, 2016

Liked very much working with Dr. Laneve. Very much on the ball, great to talk with, very attentive to me his patient.
Patient | April 28, 2016

Thorough in all areas/explained procedures and surgery to come/very pleasant.
Patient | April 12, 2016

Dr. Laneve and all his staff were very ice & professional.
Patient | April 8, 2016

Since I was experiencing my first ever surgery, I would like have received a follow up call from the Doctor's office regarding my current status. I think it would have been good to have had a conversation about my experience following surgery. I had questions about specific details about the procedure, I did not get a chance to follow up on. I think only the surgeon would have been able to answer since he was there when I was under. thank you.

Could not have been better!
