On my first visit with Dr Lancaster I was X-Rayed for my hip issues and he consulted with me and gave me the appropriate treatment for my condition. The injections went precisely where I needed them with only one appointment. With a previous doctor not with Baylor Scott White, I was given injections at a separate facility other than the doctors office and they were injecting in the wrong area. They were injected into my Pelvis instead of my hips were I Needed it. So I am very pleased. A+
