Patient Comment May 2019
Dr. Lawson, is one of the best doctors I've had in a long time. It is very clear that he is very compassionate about his gift and talent as a doctor. I would recommend him to anyone who needs his service. I have encountered many doctors over the years and he is the best. He cares a great deal about his patients. Dr. Lawson is very professional, compassionate and consistent.

Would not give me time of day very rude and unprofession. Talk to four month later when had more problems. And told me he don't have to see me any more. Wait I'm not healed.

Patient Comment December 2018
I honestly don't know Dr. Lawson very well. I have been "seeing" him for 4 years, but in the past I always saw his PA. This was the first year he didn't have a PA, and he came in to discuss the MRI results. He spent enough time with me. ***

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.
