About Dr. Lane
Dr. Lane grew up in Abilene, Texas and graduated from Rice University in Houston and from UT Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, in 1990. His Family Medicine residency training was in Tucson with another U of A, the University of Arizona.
His first two years after training, Dr. Lane practiced rural medicine including obstetrics in Eagle Lake, Texas. He then worked in the NASA area of Houston for 10 years. He and his family moved to New Zealand in 2005 where he practiced rural medicine at the Otaki Medical Centre for six years. There he gained Fellowship (similar to board certification) in the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners. Upon his return to the US in 2011, he was employed by Sparks Regional Medical Center at the Greenwood, AR Family Medical Clinic. Over the years, he has had several interesting locum tenens assignments, too: IHS in Arizona, a cruise ship in the Caribbean, and an HMO in Hawaii.
Dr. Lane joined the UAMS West Faculty in 2014. He has special interest in outpatient care, geriatric and nursing home care and responsible use of limited health care resources.
