I drive 45 miles to see Dr Laws. ( I had a bad experience in my home town with a Doctor) I have seen seeing Dr Laws for many years. He has been kind and helpful over the years. I actually enjoy our conversations.

I would rate him 0 stars . He was condescending and arrogant. I saw him for skin lesions on my arm that simply would not heal . He told me there was nothing he could do . His advice was appalling and absurd . He told me I just needed to take my arm off and hang it in a closet until it healed . I was in shock that a so called doctor would say such a stupid and ridiculous thing to a patient. His personality and bedside manner is enough to turn anyone off . And then he overcharges me .

Terrible bedside manner. Very arrogant and condescending attitude, almost argumentative at times. After 3 visits I will not go back to this doctor. Found a doctor that listened and actually was able to help me with my condition after the first visit.

I have been to this man 3 times and kept giving him chances (my stupidity). He has no "bedside" manner, he is condescending and rude (told me to shut up so he can look). Worse doctor I have ever been to. If he was the last doctor on earth, I still wouldn't go to him.

Dr. Laws was the epitome of rude and condescending. I told him I had past history or 4-5 melanomas. The first rude comment was " you should wear long sleeves". He said, " I see you have been in the sun." I said, "yes, unfortunately I was in the convertible and forgot my sunscreen". He said, " don't buy a convertible". He said"convertibles are for kids". As if that all wasn't bad enough, he said, " I don't believe you've had melanoma!!!! 1 minute skin check, just a cursory glance!!! Don't go!

Dr.Laws is basically a jerk. Very condescending and a know it all. Told me that I am vain for wanting my Psoriasis clearer which by the way feels like a permanent case of poison ivy. Told me to stop trying to be perfect more than once. This is an auto immune disease and appearance is the least of my concerns. Also accused me of misusing meds because they didn't work. Oh and my mole check lasted all of 20 seconds as he told me to stay out of the sun. Waste of time and money. Never again!

He was not my regular dr I see there but the first available. Very rude would not let me talk about the issue. He talked to me like he knew what happened and why i was there. Then told me it was fault it happened. I had to walk out on him due to other rude comments he said. I paid a $30 copay to see a dr to help with my issue and if possible prescribe meds but instead I paid to be insulted. But the other staff in the office was nice and helpful. I appreciated that.

I found Dr. Laws to be professional, show interest in what I told him, and provide answers for my questions. He was kind and patient, qualities that are increasingly difficult to find in doctors.
