What People Say About Dr. Jennifer Lawton, MD
Reply
She performed an aortic valve replacement on me and it has failed. Less than a year later, I'm having to undergo the procedure again because of prosthesis mismatch. She seems like a very caring person and was kind to me. I don't know what went wrong, but ultimately she is responsible.
