      I brought my mother to Dr Lawler for treatment of her Parkinson's. I have never in my life met a more compassionate, caring physician. Dr Lawler answered all of our questions, and gave us a very detailed plan of action to reduce her very severe symptoms. We have seen her several times in the last 6 months, and each time, she is thorough and compassionate. I wish every Parkinsons's patient can see her - she is truly one in a million!

      Dr. Abigail Lawler is an angel. She has so much love and compassion for her patients. My mother has been getting more and more stable under her care. She listens to the family and wants them involved. She is kind and considerate and willing to try different treatments to help achieve optimal results. Anyone would be extremely lucky to have her as their Neurologist. I think she is probably just about the best there is. If I could give her 10 stars I would, but 5 is the highest we are allowed to give.

      STRONGEST RECOMMENDATION! Unlike most providers I’ve seen, Dr. Lawler patiently listened and provided easy to understand direction. Dr. Lawler was respectful and empathetic throughout. She was familiar with my medical history and took time to carefully explain complicated terms and procedures. VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE.

      My husband has been going to Dr. Lawler for Parkinson's. We have not been happy with her since day one. Most recently, she cancelled a prescription but never sent a new prescription to our pharmacy. I did a reorder and it didn't come through so i called my pharmacy and they told me, Dr. Lawler had the prescription which we were not made aware of. I called the Neurology center and they reordered the cancelled prescription, but it has now been three days that my husband has gone without his medication because the pharmacy was out of stock on the prescription. Plus, 30 days previous to his appointment, he had lost his oldest son, and she showed no empathy towards him regarding his sons death just pushed forward asking him questions that could have waited for another time.
