It's not easy for me to go to the dentist. I am scared to death. Dr. Lawhon calm my nerves almost as soon as he walked into the room. He had me and my husband laughing to where I forgot about being scared. He explained everything and made me feel comfortable with getting my tooth cut out. When I walked into his office I saw all these people there. We'll I found out why all those folks were waiting to see him....it was worth it. Thanks to him for being down to earth and doing a good job.

I have blue Cross Blue Shield and after calling every oral surgeon from florence to myrtle beach he is the only one in my network. My daughter was scared to death. Dr. Lawhon explained everything to her and made a few jokes and made her feel so relaxed so she loved the guy. When I spoke with the insurance clerk I had no idea how complicated oral surgery insurance is that's why no one is in network. But stephanie did a great job in telling me what to expect. Surgery went great. Thanks again.

If I could give this office Zero stars I would because they do not deserve one. I went to my dentist with a toothache from a tooth I broke off only to find out it was a wisdom tooth and he could not pull it. My dentist had to refer me to an oral surgeon. They told me to pick between Dr. Lawhon and Palmetto Oral Surgeons (Dr. Oliver) Knowing nothing about either I chose Dr. Lawhon, big mistake. I went in for a consult $114 for xray & visit. Their wasn't much consulting, just xray and told me I ha

Dr. Lawhon was rude and very condescending. Even with my face being extremely swollen he showed zero compassion. He gave me antibiotics only. Said he was surprised I hadn't had problems previously with the poor condition of my teeth. When nurses asked about pain meds he said she probably got some from the dentist that referred her and I'm not writing her another one. I left the office in extreme pain and feeling completely horrible. I wouldn't want him to make anyone else feel this bad!!
The Doctor was great the people doing the insurance claims do not know what they are doing. If you expect to get money back go to a different office.

I did not make it out of the waiting room until more than 90 minutes past my appointment time. They insisted on redoing my x rays even though I had xrays with me that were less than two weeks old. They had me pay more than $200 out of pocket even though my insurance paid them in full. It took more than 6 weeks to obtain a refund and that was only because I disputed it with my bank.
