He is excellent doctor!I miss him now in my 3th pregnancy, because he is not anymore in my health insurance network.He is so professional and very good person.Respect for him from me and my family for all my life and.After my first traumatyc baby delivery in Europe, he was like my angel with my 2 next baby delivery.Thank you dr.Lawson for your care, patience and professionalism.Best wishes from Eva S.

I had a very fast labor and contractions started fast and were close together, didn't get a chance to call him before I left home. He gave me a lecture about it while I was the delivery room. Seemed to get angry with me when I was pushing and having difficulty getting my son out. He was just all around rude and made my birthing experience horrible. He was also extremely rude to my husband. Would not recommend to him to anybody. He treated me like a child when I was at my appointments.
