I had an unpleasant experience on June 9,2016 seeing Dr. Penny Lawin. I have NEVER had a doctor behave so unprofessionally!! I talked with the CEO of the Sports Center to let him know about "Penny". She doesn't have TIME for her patients or answering questions they might have.....even after driving 125 miles for the appointment. I would NOT recommend her to my worst enemy!! She needs to take an extended vacation and/ or take an early retirement!! Go to another foot/ankle doctor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had her recommended surgery without a 2nd opinion. It failed, and she wanted to do it again. I went to Oshner and Campbell clinics for advice on 2nd surgery. Neither agreed with Dr. Lawin, and one wondered why the 1st surgery was done. She may be a good MD but sees way too many patients to give you her 100% attention. if you have a complicated problem, I suggest you go to UMMC or out of town.
