This is a strange review because we first saw Dr. Lawrence 18 years ago in Pensacola. I will keep it simple - my daughter was understandably misdiagnosed by her pediatrician and Dr Lawrence solved the mystery in a short amount of visits. He literally saved my daughter's life. She had a very unusual illness related to strep in her bloodstream that mimicked Stills Disease. He made a decision to remove her tonsils at a very young age and saved her heart from permanent damage. Thank you!!!!!!!!!

This man will NOT let you speak or tell him how you are feeling. He does ALL the talking. The first day I say him was in June 2014. He stuck his head in the door of the room I was in and said I will be in. in a minute and I will fix you cause I'm going to put you on a 20,000 medicine. He never gave me the medicine yet has told another Rheumatologist that I was Non Compliant. The new RA dr will not see me because of his reply to her. I do not have a RA dr because of him. No respect for him.
