I went to this office in May 2015 because my tooth cracked. After encountering an unfriendly staff & one of the worst x-ray experiences of my life I did not feel comfortable at this dentist's office and I wanted someone I could trust to get the work done. Upon entering and leaving the office I was told that I would have a $0 balance because my insurance covered the x-ray. 2 years later I have received a statement/notice that I've been reported to the Credit Bureau for $102. Do not recommend.

I'm having problems with a new medication and called to have it changed. I received a call back from Shari? advising to continue to check my blood sugar when I experience my shaking and sweating then come in in a month with the chart. First of all I don't check my blood sugar, never have in 4 1/2 years. Do they even know who I am??? I stayed with Dr. Lawson because he was familiar with my history, however, I now question that. I'm glad he's not a surgeon.

Dr. Lawson was recommended by my son's pediatrician when he turned 18. He was not able to see him for a few years, but that has changed. My son is EXTREMELY HAPPY with Dr. Lawson. He feels he takes the time to really listen to him and he understands his concerns. Each time he sees Dr. Lawson he learns something and comes home feeling so much better for having been there.

I wouldn't recommend based on his lack of bedside manners and making me feel as though I am a liability. I asked for a referral towards the end of an appointment and was told he had other patients to see. Dr. Lawson reluctantly provided the referral, but basically stated that it would take quite some time for the referred Dr. to contact me based on the fact that he has other patients to see.
