    How was your appointment with Dr. Lane?

    Jan 01, 2021
    Over 10 yrs cancer free. I was so happy we chose Dr Lane after interviewing 3 other Doctors. She is professional and personable. She explained the cancer type and relived us of fears and explained what was to be done and what options we had. She’s doesn’t know how many compliments I’ve received on her excellent surgery skills when I have breast exams. I barely have a scar. If you choose Dr Lane you will get the honest truth and good care. Thank you Dr Lane.
