About Dr. Wendy S Lane MD
Dr. Wendy S Lane has the following 3 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism
An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.
- Preventive Medicine
A preventive medicine/wellness specialist is a physician who, through additional training, has become an expert in methods for maintaining good health and preventing disease. These specialists are the doctors people see when they are generally well or without a specific ailment and want to either learn how to maintain their current health or acquire better health.
These doctors will advise patients on specific diets, exercise regimens, and lifestyle habits that are suited to their particular needs. Preventive medicine/wellness specialists take into account a patient's nutrition deficiencies, physical and cardiovascular capabilities, and habits in order to advise specific vitamins and supplements to take, how much physical activity to undertake, and which habits should be broken and replaced with more positive behavior.

The best Endrocrine Doctor in Asheville
Self-verified patient of Dr. Wendy S Lane - Posted on March 29th, 2013
I have been seeing Wendy for many, many years. She is always very knowledgeable about what I need and always takes the time to talk with me. She has never made me feel bad about myself being a diabetic for 47 years. She understands that life can sometimes throw a curve and I always leave her office feeling better about myself. I have seen other physicians in the Asheville area and every time I left their office I cried-feeling terrible about myself. Being a diabetic is very challenging and she always gives me a boost. She understands my lifestyle and helps me understand that doing the right thing is the best thing. I do not dread going to see her even if I know my A1C may not be the best. I know when she tells me to check my sugar more often is the only way she can tell me what is going-even when I don't, she is my cheer leader, pushing me to do my best. I would suggest that anyone see her. Even if I have to wait, I know she is giving someone else the same time she gives me. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL, THE BEST ENDOCRINOLOGIST IN THE WORLD.

I've been seeing Dr. Lane for more than 14 years and I think she is fantastic. She's no-nonsense and will definitely NOT sugar-coat (no pun intended) what's going on. She's supportive and realistic. She is up-to-date on all the latest research and therapies. I'll keep driving 3 hours to see her until she retires.
