Dr. Lancaster performed triple bypass surgery on my husband and we are so thankful for this professional, experienced and caring doctor. He at all times showed concern for my husband and myself. Always asking if there was anything he could do for us and took the time to answers any questions we had. Kept us updated on what was going on at all times and and ensured my husband was receiving the care he needed. Thank you Dr. Lancaster.
