Dr. Lawenda spent over an hour with me during an integrative medical consultation. He thoroughly reviewed my extensive medical records and history of breast cancer, which currently represents almost 13 years. He is extremely knowledgeable and encompasses a diversified background. He was attentive, listened carefully, and answered all of my questions, which is of utmost importance to me as a patient. He and his entire staff offer exceptional medical care to the Tri-Cities.

Awesome Staff,Great Dr.-Patient relationship.They made a negative situation into a positive one.
in Las Vegas, NV |
Incredibly accurate on time appointments. Starting with the receptionist, the supporting staff, nurse Cynthia, technician Albert, and especially Dr, Lawenda. Each and every member of the staff made me feel comfortable, welcome, and as though I was their only patient. I was well informed and felt my health was in capable hands. The staff encouraged questions and listened when I spoke. Dr. Lawenda is extremely capable and compassionate. I highly, highly recommend this group of professionals.

He gave me the details of the side effects of my treatment. When I finished the series of treatments he offered me an appointment the next week, although he said most patients wait about a month. I made an appointment for the next month.
