What People Say About Dr. Melissa Lawhon, MD
Reply
I'll never forget how this lady misdiagnosed my child who has kawasaki disease. If only you would have more knowledge being titled Doctor my child's heart would be just fine. That 10 day window could've saved her from the heart complications she now suffers from after being misdiagnosed 5 times.
