Most impressed with everything about this office - the surgeon, the front office and follow up care. I had an issue and this group was remarkably efficient and clearly had expertise in the delivery of service, as well as discharge follow along. Hands down, I recommend them and I look forward to continuing care.

This dr was rude and disrespectful! He gave his personal opinions about how awful my teeth were and refused meds! He could care less about patients and all about $! If you want to leave the dr feeling worse about yourself than you did before than you should by all means go to him! He will leave you with zero pride zero meds and lots of tears! If you complain they will make you feel even worse! I wouldn’t let him work in my pet! He needs a job not working with people!!!!

My daughter has panic attacks. She is 17 years old. She went into the room and she was upset because she was scared. As he was pulling her wisdom teeth she was crying and panicked. He yelled at her and was throwing his instruments on the table. She apologized and he told her that sorry wasnt good enough. He yelled at the nurse and told her she needed to get on her A game. He told her since she had a piercing in her lip she should be able to do this. So much more. No way to treat anyone.

If you have insurance be warned. Office staff is useless. Took 3 months to get my refund and had problems the whole time. They lost insurance payments said they never received them when my company said they cashed them. My sister having same problem. I am convinced they are purposely keeping insurance payments. You pay up front and then have to be reimbursed. If I had not stayed on top of the situation I would never have received my money. They also lied to me multiple times.

Dr. Lawhon’s office is the rudest office I have ever been to. The office manager should not even be working with the public and to avoid a painful surgery go to ANY other doctor.

I cannot begin to thank Dr.Lawhon and his staff. I don't have good insurance but the little girl Stephanie fought with my insurance company to help me all she could. Dr. Lawhon was nice and really explained to me what was going on. They also helped me get care credit so I could get my tooth out. I hope I don't need another tooth out but I will be back here if I have to.

It's not easy for me to go to the dentist. I am scared to death. Dr. Lawhon calm my nerves almost as soon as he walked into the room. He had me and my husband laughing to where I forgot about being scared. He explained everything and made me feel comfortable with getting my tooth cut out. When I walked into his office I saw all these people there. We'll I found out why all those folks were waiting to see him....it was worth it. Thanks to him for being down to earth and doing a good job.

I have blue Cross Blue Shield and after calling every oral surgeon from florence to myrtle beach he is the only one in my network. My daughter was scared to death. Dr. Lawhon explained everything to her and made a few jokes and made her feel so relaxed so she loved the guy. When I spoke with the insurance clerk I had no idea how complicated oral surgery insurance is that's why no one is in network. But stephanie did a great job in telling me what to expect. Surgery went great. Thanks again.
