Patient Reviews

Overall Rating

So far so good. Got the cortisone shot for my ankle being blown out. It has worked so far. The pain I have had for years is now gone! I highly recommend making an appointment with him. There is one nice assistant, the dark haired one. The blonde is rude. If I didn't like the results, I wouldn't come back because of her. But. The Doctor is great and helpful!

Overall Rating

A great experience w Dr. Lawson and my teen's ingrown nail. He was personable and sympathetic and took a lot of time when he realized how nervous she was. We went back for a quick recheck and he didn't charge us for the second visit since we were just nervous nellies.
