*this is continuation from earlier post..... Another point, its a fact that there are many nice charming doctors that hold your hand and have warm bedside manners.They do their best, But alot of the best physicians, (physicians that other doctors see) might not have that warm bedside manner, but could be above the rest in brillance and analyzation. they are compassionate with their patients even if they dont seem like it. Lydia. Thats Dr Lawitz!!

I was cured of Hepatitis C after years of Interferon treatment. What an immense blessing it is to be free of the virus and feeling much better with normal liver enzymes. Dr. Lawitz is an incredible Doctor and his staff are all amazing as well. Thanks, John Lyons

Doctor Lawitz is a fine doctor. I like his demeanor and professionalism. However, his staff leaves a lot to be desired.
