Dr. Andrew H Lane has the following 2 specialties
- Pediatric Endocrinology
Endocrinologists treat disorders related to our glands and the hormones they produce. Because hormones play a key role in the growth and development of children, these conditions often pose different threats to children than they do adults. That’s where a pediatric endocrinologist comes in.
They can diagnose and treat hormonal disorders such as abnormal thyroid function, growth complications and early or delayed puberty. Ambiguous genitals as well as ovarian and testicular dysfunction are also part of their expertise. Childhood obesity, diabetes and problems with low blood sugar also tie back to hormone function and may require consulting with a pediatric endocrinologist.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

I've been a patient of Dr.Lane since I found out about my thyroid disease when I was 14, he's very nice, polite, good listener and very patient. He always asks me how's school and how everything is going. When my sister was also discover with thyroid disease I had no doubt in taking her there also she's deaf and he's so patient with her, he's very respectful and professional... It's always a pleasure to go back there!!! :)
We see Dr. Lane for my son's adrenal insufficiency. My son was born at the hospital and has been seeing Dr. Lane since birth. Stony Brook is a teaching hospital. Every appt a fellow comes in to talk to us and finds out what's going on with the patient and if there are any concerns. This is fine by me. A Dr. has to learn somewhere. Then the fellow reports to Dr. Lane who then comes with the fellow to discuss any concerns you may have. I like that he and his staff will double check any vitals that the nurse may have taken. This info is vital when deciding dosage of medication. There once was a considerable difference I am thankful they caught it. He spends a considerable amount of time with you. No matter how many questions you may have or even if you don't understand something. You never feel rushed. So I'm sure this is why there is a wait beyond your appointment time. This is the only reason why I am ok with the wait. The only problem I ever had was not getting blood work done in time which you need so the appt was cancelled. Couldn't get another appt for months which ended up just being the next time my son would see him. I never forgot again! There is one staff member of the Dept. Ann(secretary) who always goes over and beyond. Or maybe its just called "doing the job" I haven't spoken to her recently so I wonder if she is still there. She is so nice and calls you back promptly with all the information you need and maybe more you weren't aware of. Recently I have had issues with a bit of attitude from voices that didn't sound familiar to me. You feel comforted when you have a staff member who is familiar with a patient. Overall I think Dr. Lane is a great endocrinologist. I would personally give him 4stars.
