Dr. Lancaster was recommended to me by my regular physician. The first visit went well. After I was approved for surgery he threatened to not do my surgery if I didn't lose enough weight in time. He also told me I had to work out an hour a day every day for the rest of my life. At the hospital I was very anxious. He came in and the first thing he asked me was how much weight did I lose? I told him I lost 18 pounds in three weeks, and all he said was, thats it? I thought he was kidding so I smiled and said are you serious? He didn't say anything and walked away. That made me more anxious right before I was operated on. The next day in the hospital he came into my room to check on me and asked if I had gotten up and walked. I told him I had twice since the surgery and he said that's it? Again! He said I need to get up and move! In a very rude manner. I told him I was waiting on the nurse to help me get up and he said I need to go now! Then he left. He makes me feel lazy and worthless. I really hate him!
