Patient Comment October 2018
*Dr. Herman Lawson is a knowledgeable and dedicated surgeon, I have every reason to believe that he did his best. The surgery that was anticipated to last an hour & a half lasted three and a half hours. The MRI, he found, did not reveal the full truth of my condition. He dealt with what he found regardless of the time it took. *Dr. Lawson continues to be actively in the outcome of my surgery and is hoping for good results. For all _____ I am deeply grateful.

This was my first contact with this provider but I feel confident going in for this surgery with him even though this is a spine surgery. But I also place my trust in God & ask him to help my provider.
Patient Comment May 2018
Dr. Lawson was informative, friendly, easy to talk to and was most concerned about my back issue. I would recommend Dr. Lawson highly to family, colleagues and friends.
Patient Comment March 2018
from patient's wife..My husband was a physical therapist and a hospital administrator. He notices EVERYTHING whenever he has a medical appointment. He will talk about the entire experience (despite my being with him) in great detail, good and bad. He has never said a negative word about his experiences with Dr. Lawson or the staff. His comment to me last evening was, "I really think that Dr. Lawson is a fine fellow and he knows his stuff." ***
