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
EXCELLENT doctor. I felt so comfortable with her warm and welcoming manner. If you’re a first timer, or you’re shy, go see her. You will not regret it.
she is amazing
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 spend plenty of time listening to my concerns and answering my questions. Highly recommend!
Lauren was great! Fantastic bedside manner. Very personable. Took time to explain various options in detail. Listened to all concerns and responded with options that were available. Great experience!
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!
