Dr. Lawrence performed ACDF surgery on me in January. From the initial appointment to the post op follow up, Dr. Lawrence was the by far the best physician I have ever dealt with. He helped me get through a very painful event and resolve my neck issues quickly and for that I am MOST appreciative. I will be quick to refer anyone I know with neck/ back issues to Dr. Lawrence. Two big thumbs up!!

Dr Lawerance recently preformed back surgery on my mother and I would highly recommend avoiding him. I felt that he acted like a bully. Apparently no one but him knows anything, according to him the infectious disease specialists were wrong about my mom getting a staff infection and everyone at the hospital including other doctors seems scared of him. He belittled my mother to the point of talking down to her as they brought her into surgery to drain the puss out of her back asking what she did

I always have a very positive experience when I visit Dr. Lawrence. He is very skilled in his profession. He is caring enough to listen carefully to the patient's concern and answers all of my questions. He made me feel cared for and in good hands.He reviewed my x-ray with me and explained it specifically. He is also very humane not robotic. He respected my spiritual views and prayed with me. My neck surgery was very successful and he took care of my post-op pain. Thank You Dr.Lawrence.
waited 4 weeks for the 1st available appt- on the date I was runnjng late for appt due to unforeseen circimstances - I called the office and notified tha I would ne there in approx. 15 minutes and was told to still come and that I would be seen. When I arrived .I waited on line standing with crutches for 15 min..when I finally was called to the window they told me I could not be seen because I was late after they had told me to come anyway. I was in pain tremendous pain. MD did not see me.
