I could not have been more pleased. The staff was pleasant, as were the surroundings. The wait time was reasonably short. Each of the providers were professional and personable, listened to what I had to say, did a thorough examination, gavequick, painless, and well-explained treatment, and sent me on my way quickly efficiently after giving me a chance to get answers to my questions about at-home treatment and follow-up. I highly recommend Dr. Lano and his staff -- if only ALL medical visits were so rewarding!

I have been in Dr. Lano's care for several years now and have never been disappointed. He is very, very thorough with his exams and will take the time to answer questions along the way. He basically saved my lifeby recognizing my throat cancer so early and was right on target with procedure recommendations. I am now cancer free! A bit of comfort comes along with those follow up visits, knowing that he has a watchful eye on me. Robbie S

I’ve been seeing Dr Lano for many years, it’s only natural that we’d have him see our son. I wouldn’t take my family anywhere else. Son had appointment at 730 to have tubes put in his ears. We were home by 830, with no complications. We love Dr Lano.

The only problem I have is that the headaches are "NOW " and very painful. I understand the process for I have been through it more times than I can count over my lifetime. I know the headache like a closepersonal demon. Please understand that I am not complaining, you must do what you do. But my battle is daily, hourly and long moments. I wish I could hope for relief. I fear long testing at a torment no one has a handle on. It does however make me feel unique ??
