Dr. Lancaster was quick but very thorough at the same time. X-ray was done quickly and professionally. the dr's diagnosis was correct. he did not treat my kind of problem, but ordered a cortisone shot in order to help me with my pain (which did wonders!!!) and referred me to a provider who could help me long term. the service was excellent.

This office is run like no other Dr's office that I have ever been to. They should be a training center. They are all efficient, from the time you check in, to the time you leave. There is no waiting 1-2 hours. Your appointment time is when they call you back. I have sent quite a few people to Dr Lancaster and they all have said that they are amazed at how well it is run while giving you the complete attention that you need.

I was new to Dr. Lancaster, though not to Ortho. Associates. I am still trying to get at the root cause of my condition - I learned through seeing Dr. Lancaster and getting an xray that my knee (bone) is not the problem. Next comes an MRI. It may be nerve-related, so I am taking the next step to determine what is causing pain. Dr. Lancaster was friendly and did his job.
