Worst doctor I've ever had. I came in because he called me because it was time for my colonoscopy. I wasn't sick at the time. The first thing he said to me was "Do you have any idea how obese you are?" He said that in a very threatening and disrespectful voice. Yes, I'm fat, but I'm also a well educated professional woman.

My first contact with Dr Rawson was when I had to visit the emergency room at the BMH in Columbus, MS. He was nice and attentive to my needs. I ended up being admitted to the hospital for a total of four days. He along with other doctors visited me everyday and talked to me about my healing process after surgery and to make sure that if I had any questions for him to answer. He did an outstanding job and his office staff was awesome.

My husband was left unattended after his colonoscopy while he was still heavily sedated from the anesthesia. When I was taken back to see him, I found him half-undressed, and trying to climb over the rail of the bed. When I brought up the incident to Dr. Rawson, he accused me of making something out of nothing and proceeded to tell me that I was just looking for something to make a report on. My husband is a 22 year Army veteran and it broke my heart to see him in such a vulnerable state.
