Always professional, interested and listens thoroughly to concerns. Gives answers to questions and is not rushed. Genuinely cares for patients in my opinion b/c the physician himself sees the patient even one year post-op. My previous experience elsewhere was that the physician did not see me at all after the surgery was performed. Only the PA. Dr. Lancaster provides a better surgical approach and technique with quicker rehabilitation and less pain.
