Dr Lanier is terrible. He does not seem interested in helping patients in pain. Maybe he is just ready to retire. I believe he failed to treat me properly when I was going through a tough time with RA and now my elbows are severely deformed. He is not up to speed on the latest research and development. I went back to one of the best rheumy's in Atlanta and was immediately put on a prescription that helped me live as close to a normal life as possible. Dr. Lanier asked me why would I want to ruin my life when I told him I wanted to start a family (knowing that I would need to adjust the meds). Now (thanks to the help of other drs, not Dr. Lanier) I have 2 beautiful children who enrich my life AND I can manage my RA. If I had stayed a patient of Dr. Lanier this would not be the case.

This office is all about the almighty dollar. They will not talk to a pharmacy under any circumstances. I had a generic prescription filled that cost 161.00. The pharmacist said I would pay 27.00 if the office would change to a slightly lower dosage. Since the office does not talk to pharmacists, I paid the 161.00 instead of the 27.00. Both drugs were generic, the only difference was between 10mg and 20mg. One of the meds he prescribed on that same visit did not work as expected. Again, I could not call the office to ask for another drug, I would have to make another appt., plus pay the price of an office visit. If any of this makes sense to you, then I guess you've found your doc.

Drawbacks are works only part-time, have to have an appointment to order refills, and insurance gets messed up... Dr. Lanier himself is very good and the wait is not long. If he was full time might consider..
