Dr. Lawner knew what was wrong with me after months of other doctors missdiagnosing. I was in such severe pain that my whole body was being affected, I lost like 30 pounds, my muscles attrofied terribly. Dr. Lawner saved my life. It took months to regain my strength but the pain was gone.

My boyfriend received a back surgery from Dr Lawner. Experiences with him have been very positive so far. He seems like a very experienced surgeon. I'd recommend him and his practice to anyone that has back problems.

Doctor Lawner is wonderful -- thorough, easy to talk to, took his time explaining my condition and options. His surgical skills are superb, and that's what's really important. Very nice man, and great office staff.
