I just celebrated my 1st year of being cancer free with Her2 positive breast cancer. My liver enzymes test were coming back high as well as my liver iron levels. I was referred to Dr. Lawitz after a MRI and several other done by my oncologist and gastroenterologist. Dr Lawitz was rude and unconcerned in my case.Dr Lawitz didn't even examine me! I sat in a chair while he typed in my file. When he asked if I can any questions I asked him what's causing my symptoms he replied not your liver.

*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.
