Dr. Lang is the best!


A superb physician!


Dr. Lang is the best! His skill and expertise in my hip replacement produced outstanding results. Every experience that I have had at Davie and Wake Forest Baptist Health has been first class!


*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 very competent , takes interest and concern in his patients quality of life I have recommended him to several friends who have or needing tkr I trust his opinion


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


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


Overall, it was a good experience.


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!


have recommended provider to others, they like them as well


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.


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 seems great I feel confident he will take good care of me.

Excellent overall care and experience.


Dr. Lang was very honest and my condition and whether surgery could help me. I would definitely recommend him to others considering joint replacement surgery.


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.


The numbers speak for themselves.


Dr. Lang seemed a little hurried, but I also couldn't remember all the questions I had written down, but forgot and left at home. I really like Dr. Lang and his reputation is outstanding.


Dr. Lang took extra time with me because of an orthopedic concern I had with another joint. Even though his schedule was full, he ordered an additional xray and went over them with me.


*Dr. Lang & staff impressed me - They "looked" at the "whole picture" - Covered aspects I did not consider myself.


Very satisfied - would recommend very highly.


Dr. Jason Lang is energetic, careful, focused, experienced, sensitive, and gives one confidence that he knows what he is doing. He is a good teacher who is caring about his patients. He has an engaging personality and is a fun person to be around (not characteristic of surgeons in general)


never felt rushed. dr Lang stayed with me till I was comfortable with our decisions


My first office experience was very good for my first time to see this doctor and staff. I am pleased so far.


Dr. Lang is the best - knowledgeable and engaging


Dr. Lang is a kind and caring provider. He is an excellent surgeon. He always goes above and beyond what I would expect in a provider. I continue to be pleased that I choose him and Wakehealth.


Very good experience -


Great service




Very professional.


Good experience.


Dr. Lang was great.He is looking out for my best interest and what would make my surgery a success. That means a lot.Some Dr.s are not that way and it could result in death. Im very glad he took my health in consideration and did what was best by putting off my surgery until i was at a better weight.


*Dr. Lang is a very good doctor.


Great doctor I have recommended him to at least 6 others.


I have recommend *Dr. Lang to others, as he is a very caring doctor he explains things well and is easy to understand.

Everything good


I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Lang's skills and recommendations. He's the BEST. very capable and caring.


Outstanding service, will recommend to others.


I came away feeling VERY positive. Best ortho appt. ever.


I have had twelve surgeries from College Football injuries. Dr. Lang performed the past four. He and his staff are the best team that has ever worked with me. I highly recommend Dr. Lang !!


provider highly recommended!




Wonderful surgeon, informative, well defined care process and concerned mannerisms.


Dr Lang has worked on me twice. I went back because he is very good.


Dr. Lang really cares. So glad he is my doctor!


I will recommend Dr. Lang and Davie County facility to everyone I know. Excellent all the way.




Dr. Lang is a very good orthopedic doctor. He did a partial knee replacement in the left knee four years ago. I wouldn't have any doctor but Jason Lang.


Very helpful & good experience.


I have worked with physicians for 28 years and I find Dr Lang to be one of the absolute best, if not "the" best I have worked with for my orthopedic issues. I so respect and trust Dr Lang! He inspires me to push ever a touch harder to improve my health. Your facility is so lucky to have Dr Lang. Appreciate him :).


Great experience.


This was my first visit with Dr. Jason Lang. I will definitely recommend him to others. He was very personable and professional. I left feeling very confident with the choice of having him as my orthopedic surgeon.


I have already recommended two neighbors to this provider who are totally satisfied with the results. I consider him the best in his field and would definitely send anyone needing his services to him.


Good experience


*Dr. Lang showed more compassion and concern about my problem than the doctor I seen prior to him.


Very positive experience.


He seems to be what I like in a surgeon. He is conservative in his medical approach to my problem.


Dr. Lang gives outstanding care! I have recommended him without hesitation to my friends and co-workers who have knee problems. He listens carefully, explains thoroughly, and considers my opinions when developing my care plan.


What is better than great?


This was my first meeting with Dr. Lang he was very compassionate about my condition, listened very carefully to my concerns, and answered all my questions.


He didn't spend enough time with me as it seemed to me that after he looked at my xrays and he determined that I didn't need a hip replacement, he was no longer interested in my problem.


Excellent experience.




Jason Lang is the best physician I have seen in a long time - he is young, smart, and an incredible doctor. After two hip replacements, I should know. Wake Forest Baptist needs to make sure that he stays on the staff - we cannot afford to lose him!!!!!


Dr Lang is a great doctor. I have a lot of confidence in his skill & expertise as a ortho surgeon.


The doctor, nurses and other health care personnel were attentive and efficient.
