She is by far the best physician I have seen . She is very welcoming and makes you 100% comfortable. I had so many questions that I’ve been so embarrassed to ask . Dr. Lauren made me so comfortable that I didn’t even hesitate . I highly recommend her

Incredible. Laura really loves her job, knows what she is going, is funny and compassionate, and made a "not your favorite thing to do" appointment a pleasant learning experience. She had me wait a little longer so that she could spendplenty of time listening to my concerns and answering my questions. Highly recommend!

Loved Lauren! She was so sweet and had great bedside manner. I wasn't seen until an hour after my appointment but she was worth the wait. She also spent a good 45 min with me as a new patient Highly recommend her!
