Patient

I visited Dr. Lanys office in Sugar Land this week following an accidental fall on my home stairs. I slipped about 6 to 7 steps on the stair and fell awkwardly to my left. As a result, I broke my ribs. As my primary physician, Dr. Lanys went through my medical records and went through a series of clinical checks to pinpoint exactly where the fracture has occurred. He gave me the prescription for a pain relief and based on his experience, he determined that there was no need for x-rays. I was convinced and fully trusted his diagnosis. I came home and explained to my wife and son. They were a little uneasy that I did not ask for the x-ray. So, I went to Dr. Lanys office next day with my son. Dr. Lanys went through the same checks and steps again and explained in great details why he thinks the x-ray will not provide any additional information than what he has already determined and diagnosed. He also passionately and convincingly answered all the questions my son had about possible scenarios of other injuries to organs around the rib cage. Dr. Lanys also convinced my son that x-rays are not needed at this point in his opinion. He also stated that there are doctors who would automatically run x-rays and other diagnostic tests and he would not have any problem if I wanted. But, based on my medical history and his years of experience in clinical practice, he would not recommend x-ray at this point. I was very impressed with Dr. Lanys ability to diagnose and his compassion for the patients and their family. Every time I visited him for my routine physical exam, he always takes his time to discuss the results in great details. I strongly believe that there are very few family practitioners who will take time to explain in laymans terms, the complex science of clinical medicine. I feel very blessed to have Dr. Lanys as my PCP.

I've been going to Dr. Lanys for over 10years. He is the best!!!!! He takes time to talk and to listen to his patients. And even though I have waited about 20mins in the lobby I don't mind because he gives all of his patients the same care and consideration.
