Dr. Laneve was EXTREMELY THOROUGH in explaining the surgery. I left the office feeling informed and not worried.

outstanding experience

Dr. Laneve is excellent; one of the best surgeons you have on staff.

He is amazing! Spends so much time with his patients. Also took the time to test me even when my medical concerns did not make sense. Because he did this he was able to figure out that my calcium, magnesium and potassium levels dropped even though 2 hours before the blood test results showed normal. Because he took the time to ask questions and run tests and find that they had dropped in those 2 hours and sent me to Williams Medical Center to get IVs to get me back where I needed to be. There is no telling what would have happened had I traveled two hours back home without getting the IVs. I am so thankful that he took that extra time with me to figure it out.

Dr. LaNeve was terrific about explaining my procedure (hernia repair) beforehand, and letting me know what to expect before and after surgery. I'm thankful for his expertise.

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!
