Lexington, SC |
She's a really good doctor. She recognizes the problems that chronic opioid use create and tries to steer patients away. This creates friction sometimes, but if you are looking for someone looking out for your best interests then she's a great choice. I've had a few epidurals, some work better than others, but the procedure is always painless, quick, and well-done.

See is a great Doctor and has a lot of compassion for her patients.

Was not impressed with the recommended treatment offered. The amount also billed to Medicare and my secondary insurance was excessive. Also had trouble w/billing to my secondary insurance.

Dr Lawson suggested that I try alpha lipoic acid for a month or two before spinal injections for extreme foot pain to see if the ALA would help. It has greatly, alleviating the need for injections now.

I dont understand what a lot of these reviews are critiquing, the staff or the doctor. Ive seen a few doctors in my 67 yrs of beating my body up. I highly recommend Dr Lawson and staff.
in Columbia SC |
Dr Lawson sent the nurse practitioner to see me and perform a procedure of several injections without even seeing me first. She was very uniformitive about my condition. Offered no follow up care or a plan of care if injections did not work. She is closed on Mondays and when her office is busy the answering service picks up and tells the patient to call back. My personal Physician even called to try to get Dr Lawson to see me for a follow up and I was scheduled several weeks out with the nurse.

Great doctor and staff. I've had three visits with them-- Dr. Lawson, twice and Melissa (PA) once. I would highly recommend them. In fact, I am recovering now from a spinal epidural that Dr. Lawson performed. She explained every step to me as to what she was doing and what I could expect. I am pleased with what they are doing to help me. It is great to have other means of dealing pain instead of pills.

Terrible. Had to wait 45 minutes just to talk to her. She was rude and unwilling to cooperate with my requests. She dismissed my level of pain and was uncaring about my condition.
