I can’t say enough wonderful things about Dr. Lawrence. He is a remarkable surgeon. I had a revised TKR. It was like night and day between the two surgeries. The staff was unbelievable. I experienced minimal pain. One week after surgery I was canning salsa. Excellent experience

I felt very confident in having Dr. Lawrence as my surgeon for two total hip replacement surgeries. He is highly skilled, and very importantly took the necessary time with me as his patient. He explains everything very well and is very personable. I feel comfortable in talking with him.

I saw Dr. Lawrence after being told that I did not qualify for a knee replacement due to age and luckily he did not agree and went forward with the surgery, he was very professional and friendly.

Dr. Lawrence replaced both of my knees inside of three month's, and I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Lawrence and his staff as both knees went very well. In my opinion he and his staff take a back seat to no one, and I will rate them A++++++++++++++.
