*Jason Lang explained what my options were and listened to my fears and goals regarding surgery.


outstanding people . Dr Lang is great


*Dr. Lang came highly recommended to me by friends who has successful procedures done by him. I was very impressed by the staff, the facility and *Dr. Lang! A great experience overall.


This was my first appointment with Dr. Lang. I have a rather complicated medical past which definitely is involved in my present issues. He listened, was thoughtful about how we might proceed, scheduled a procedure to shed more light on the direction he would suggest going. He was, in a nutshell, everything that one would want in a physician---competent, courteous, sincerely interested in helping his patient. I was really appreciative and impressed.


*Dr. Lang is one of the best doctors/ surgeons I've had. He is always super nice & shows concern for the patient. I always recommend him for knee & hip problems.


I want Dr Lang to perform surgery , replacing my other knee total replacement

*Dr. Lang is wonderful - a caring, knowledgeable professional.


Overall, it was a good experience.


Dr. Lang is awesome - just ask ANY of his patients.


I have written previously re: Dr. Lang in a letter to Dr. McConnell. Dr. Lang has performed 2 total hip replacements for me and the outcome has been spectacular. His manner, his professionalism, and, most importantly, the surgery outcome leaves nothing to wish for as the procedure went as hoped for, the recovery was faster than I had a right to even reasonably expect. I was back driving in 2 weeks (off any pain meds), and back on my bike at 6 weeks riding approximately 50 - 70 miles per week. I can only applaud with gusto and gratitude Dr. Lang's professional abilities.


Dr. Lang is Great!


Dr Lang is a terrific MD in all respects


Dr. Lang is great. I do recommend him to others at every opportunity.


Dr. Lang has always taken his time with me and given me time to ask questions and voice concerns.


Very highly recommend Dr. Lang.


Recheck exams always feel rushed. I suspect they fill a different time slot or more are closer together because they don't take as long, but it all felt very rushed. I did have questions that I could not ask because of how abbreviated the visit was.




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.


I have great confidence in this physician, and my hip replacement has given me back my quality of life!

Good to have expert advice and help.


Dr. Lang was extremely helpful. He took time and answered my question and explained my procedure to me. I found him very confident and I would highly recommend him.


*Dr. Lang - very good. #1. Resident dr.


I was primarily examined by the resident student; however, *Dr. Lang did come in briefly and decided the next course of action.


*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.
