I was able to get a meeting with Dr. Lawson as a new patient within two days, much better than usingthe MLH scheduling systems. The doctor was punctual, attentive to the multiple worries I had, he had the time to hear me out, and he was clear and effective in explaining the tests he was requesting and the followup plan of care. Also, his office staff were all very kind and competent. I am very satisfied with my experience today.

Dr. Lawson took the time and effort to review my recent history which involved 4 hospital stays over a month, including two major shoulder operations. He understood the trauma I went through and checked me for any residual complications. Hewent a step further by requesting blood work to check on my iron capacity, etc. The whole staff at this office are personable and easy to work with.

Dr. Lawson is a great doctor and I always enjoy my visits there. He never rushes through the visit, always listens and has genuine concern for his patients. This is the reason I've been seeing him for 10+ years, and willcontinue to see him for as long as he practices medicine. I highly recommend him as a PCP. It also helps that he's a cool, down to earth, an all around nice guy.

Everyone from the receptionist who checked me in, to the MA who did vitals and blood work, to the doctor, we're all very professional and extremely nice. Did not feel rushed, they were genuine. Side note: it was really clean and organized, too.

Was looking for a new doctor because my other will retire in the near future. Dr. Lawson is very caring about his patients and take the time to listen to you when you are with him. He is thorough in regardsto each individual patient. He was concered about a medication I had been on for over 10 years, and want to speak with me before the next months prescription. He truly cares about his patients (would you call us that? not sure :p) and puts in the extra effort most doctors don't.
