He's terrific, everything you would want in a doctor -- knowledgeable, patient, skillful, and caring. I also found him to be extremely accessible. This is someone who became a doctor for all the right reasons. My recovery from hip surgery has exceeded my expectations, and I'll be forever indebted to the doctor who referred me to Dr. McLawhorn.

Dr. Mclawhorn replaced one of my knees. He did an excellent job. I had my other knee replaced by another physician but had less pain and recovery time with the knee Dr. Mclawhorn did. He spends time with his patients at appointments, hence he is always behind. But in my mind that is a good sign. I woul recommend him as a surgeon.
