Review for Dr. Lintecum

I recently had an operation with Dr. Fritz and his team. I found the whole team at Lawrence Spine Center to be very skilled, professional, and caring. My overall experience was great.

Review for Dr. Beck

5 stars just isn't enough! She made my 15 year old daughter feel so "at home" during her first visit. She took her time with her & to just see the compassion and care that she has for my child is hard to find in a doctor. And her nurse Kristi is just simply awesome!!
