Dr. Lawrence is a great doctor. He has a great bedside manner and takes time with his patients. I had breast cancer and he did my reconstruction. I like that he mainly does breast reconstruction for breast cancer patients so he has a lot of experience.

Dr Lawrence performed a thigh lift on me . Developed limphedema ,a life long progressive issue. He said he didn't know why this happened and could not help me . I'm very upset depressed and there is nothing I can do about it. One star is to much for this doctor.
