After 3 wasted years and 2 expensive unnecessary test with other "dr" I saw Dr. Lawrence. He showed exactly what was causing my pain on MRI and explained what he would do. Surgery scheduled 2 weeks later. Removed stenosis and found large herniated disc to be removed. Overnight in hospital. Been 4 1/2 months and pain is gone. Highly recommend. He doesn't mince words but is a GREAT surgeon. Also St. Luke's staff is very efficient and caring.

DR Lawrence is a wonderful surgeon. Yes he's is a little arrogant and rough around the edges. But as far as his skills as a surgeon he is top notch,has done two of my back surgeries and did a fantastic job both times.

He did an amazing job on my surgery. Immediate Relief! So thankful

I had L5S1 laminectomy/microdiscectomy surgery on April 14th 2017. Prior to having the surgery I was dealing with chronic back/leg pain for almost 16 years. I woke up from surgery and all of my chronic symptoms were virtually gone. I only had minor surgical pain and didn't require pain medication. Dr. Lawrence can be very blunt but he is a highly skilled neurosurgeon and I can't thank him enough for giving me my life back. I'm very pleased with Dr. Lawrence and my surgery results.

After referring me to a different service, he then shamed me for having the procedure that he recommended. He is a highly skilled and highly respected surgeon. Unfortunately, his skill is only surpassed by his arrogance. I've never heard him say anything positive about any other medical professional. In his mind, everyone who isn't him is an incompetent hack.

I just recommended Dr. Lawrence to an acquaintance who is suffering from back pain. He did my surgery last August and I felt very honored to have him as my neurosurgeon!! He was very straightforward as to my condition and what needed to be done. After suffering for 6 months I am now back to playing tennis and feeling much better. At 73 it has been a blessing. Not everyone would agree with my assessment but I liked Dr. Lawrence's confidence and expertise!! Judith Emmons

very arrogant, was very rude , very disrespectful ,was putting down other doctors, if I knew how to turn him into the some medical board I would, never have I ever been in a doctors office where the doctor was cussing and so disrespectful, I wish I had had a recorder with me to record him

Incompetent & Arrogant. Left the operation with more pain than going in.inside
