On July 29, 2013 my 69 yo mother had a ruptured subarachnoid aneurysm. She was life flighted from BMC in PC to TMH. Dr. Lawson was her attending physician. He was a young doctor and did not have my graces to do the brain surgery on my mother because of his age. I am SO BLESSED that he got through to me and saved my mothers life! It's been 5 years now and mom still gets around better than most women her age. He's a very talented young man! I would trust him with my life!

I got lost in the TMH complex and arrived 10 min. late for a first apt. to discuss surgical needs. It was agonizing to wait for this appointment. To be told I couldn't see him because he had no tolerance for my getting lost and being late makes me very leary of returning to see a Dr who has no concern or caring for a patient who can get confused by pain, may move slower than others, and can get confused in a hospital as complex as TMH. I admit it would make it too difficult to trust this Surgeon
