Patient Comments (10)

I saw Dr Lawson several times for RFA treatments. The procedure worked great for about 6 months. Since then I’ve tried to get someone to return my calls for follow up treatment with no response!

Dr. Lawson has helped me tremendously with knee pain using Cooled Radiofrequency Ablation. I also see her for botox injections for my migraines. She is very caring and up-to-date with current research. I have recommended her to friends and family who have chronic pain.

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...more

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.
