Great care provider.


This is a world-class practice. Dr. Lang is brilliant - he thinks holistically and critically - he is the epitome of a highly experienced and evolved physician - his analysis of my health situation was incredibly accurate and astute. Dr. Eli Xhaferi was also excellent - asked extremely good questions and made some very good observations. Robin, the nurse is equally skilled and at the top of her game. I am VERY impressed with this practice and feel VERY fortunate to be a patient of Dr. Lang.


Dr. Lang is the best !


Dr. Lang and his associates have been exceptionally very good. Always courteous and respectful. The techs etc. are all friendly and I found this office better than any I've gone too. I appreciate their concern and the way they have handled any problems and consider them to be one of the best in the area. I drive from Archdale to Bermuda Run and wouldn't if they were not so good. Exceptional!


Dr. Lang took plenty of time to exam me, tell me what he thought my next steps should be. I found Dr. Lang to be extremely considered of me and my concerns. I would very highly recommend to my family and friends.


Dr. Lang is down to Earth and not at all like the stereotypical orthopedic surgeon. I can ask him anything and all my questions are answers. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. I am grateful that he is my doctor.


Very good experience.

*Dr. Jason Lang is trustworthy, responsible, focused, and maintains integrity. Above all of his excellent values, he promotes the possible means expecting great things of his patients.


I did not ask as many questions as I should have, but what I did ask were answered


I drive four hours one way just to see Dr. Lang. I chose him over the physicians at Duke. I will continue to make the trip to have him as my orthopedist. I have not had any bad experiences with Dr. Lang.


Everything was good.


I was searching for a doctor after 6 months of several specialist misdiagnosing my right leg pain , orthopedic drs. included and when I called dr. Jason Langs office and attained an appointment , he was able in 15 minutes to locate my problem in my right hip by taking an X-ray and not just telling me I needed a total hip replacement but showed me the X-ray and explained what I was looking at. I was scheduled for a total hip replacement 3 weeks later, and my recovery has been the most ease that I would have never expected. I am feeling great , and am very grateful to Dr. Lang


I had a previous procedure under Dr. Lang's care and I have and will continue to recommend people to him. His care and concern is the reason I am returning to him for my next procedure.


Excellent care, recommend Dr. Lang and staff to everyone


Dr. Lang was excellent. I can not think of anything to improve my experience with him or his staff.


Exceptional. Dr. Lang went above and beyond what most doctors do. I was afraid I wasn't as far along as I should be but he was reassuring and encouraging. He is a winner. Most of all he cares about his patients.




i give Dr Lang an A plus , staff a straight A i would give tehm an A plus as well but he was so good that they fall just a hair short , PA John is great , X- ray folks fantastic

Dr. Lang did a total knee replacement for me and to say that I am please would be an understatement. I have and will continue to recommend him to my friends and family. I feel he is an excellent physician.


Dr. Lang listened to me and recommended several things that have really helped. I had surgery in January 2015 and still had some discomfort and he talked with me about several things that I could do to lessen the pain. All his suggestions worked and I am much better. There is no better doctor than Dr. Lang. He is truly the best. I will continue to recommend him and his staff to all my friends and family.
