Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lawhon "We care at my office and we think that you should not have to hear from individuals who will not show their face or give their names when rating us on this website. My personal challenge is to anyone who says they have a problem with my office give me your name, your address, your telephone number and when you visited my office. If you give me all that information and give me consent to discuss your specific problems on this website it will really show that at my office we care for our patient"
