I really appreciate that he didn't immediately jump to surgery and he listened attentively to my concerns. I do wish that he provided more info about the injections I received in both knees-e.g.what material was, expected length of effects/possible relief, possible side effects.

The experience could not have been any better. Dr Lancaster was thorough in his exam, listened to what I had to say & explained what was going on with my knee & made suggestions as to what I could do to control what was happening. My husband & I think very highly of him & trust him.
