I was pretty nervous about the operation and very timid about answering the questions Dr. Lawson had for me, but, he made me feel at ease with the operation and the recovery process after. Before surgery, he greeted me and my mother with a big smile that really put her at ease. He always makes sure I understand why he does the things he does and never makes me feel stupid for asking silly questions out of nervousness. I really enjoyed Dr. Lawson and my breast look great! I am very happy with the outcome.

The entire team was the best I've encountered for any procedure concerning my health. Dr Lawson was without a doubt the "chosen" one for my procedure. I love my results and they were as he conveyed. The overall procedure was surprised me from beginning to end. I never lacked for quality care or information as well as understanding of the process due to the teams thorough explanations. I have already recommended Dr Lawson to friends seeking services in his field. Wouldn't hesitate a moment to pursue further services as needed with Dr Lawson!

Dr Lawson saw me for a consultation he was very apprehensive about doing the surgery suggested a few other places I could go, without a referral from him, then he gave me an extremely high estimate if he did do the work. He said I could leave without seeing the receptionist, with that instruction I was under the impression that I wouldn’t have to pay for the consultation. Later I received a bill in the mail I went in to ask about it he didn’t even have the decency to come out and explain to me why I owed him when he was the opposite of helpful he was utterly unhelpful. I do not recommend him it appears that all he cares about is the money. That is just my opinion. However I am very disappointed in his attitude and apathetic approach towards me. Just my opinion.
