I have recommended Dr.Lane to several people. I was told at my last visit, that he would be retiring next year. I will miss him a lot. When I moved here back in 2008, my glucose, triglycerides were so out of wack. He got me on the right tract. When I mess up, he' s always getting me back on track. I m on disability, my wife lost her job in 2016, no more prescription coverage. Dr.Lane contacted Vanderbilt and they sent out my insulin medication and supplies at no coat to me. (wife) "I have to say, I hope they find a doctor that is as caring and personal as Dr. Lane". he has really been a great person. he will be missed.

Every was very good.
Patient | January 31, 2018

This was a first-time visit for a physical exam. I was very impressed with Dr. Lane.
Patient | January 29, 2018

Didn't tell me what the outcome of the exam was.. ex. didn't tell me if I had fluid in my ears etc.
Patient | January 16, 2018

The provider did not complete full examination. He spent more focus on the frustrations with the new computer system than with patient care. He asked what I had been given before and prescribed it. I told him he was the doctor and that was why I was there to see what I truly had going on. I preceded to get worse and feel that if I was provided a better examination my illness could have been shortened. Instead I missed a full week of work and feel that I have incurred additional doctor visit bills due to lack of quality patient care.
Patient | January 14, 2018

10. In some respects. 11. Fairly GOOD. Depends who for in what time dr. is allowed to have and in what he is allowed to do in it for actual cures. Drs. need to coordinate - whole body care more.
Patient | January 11, 2018

Dr. Lane and his staff have always been great for several years I have been going to him.
Patient | December 8, 2017

I've been dealing with this condition for 9 months and he could have cared less about what I had to say. He didn't listen at all and provided solutions that I had already tried and that I told him had failed.

Always good - I've been going to him very long time. #5. Blood test.
