02/01/13 2 3 1 1 I saw Dr. Lawrence for 4 years before switching to my current OBGYN. During that time, I complained of pelvic pain and Dr. Lawrence passed it off as PMS. As the pain got worse over the years, he finally ordered a series of ultrasounds and a CT scan, but again told me I was essentially making a big deal out of nothing. He even had the nerve to draw me a picture of the female reproductive system and explain what PMS was. I work in healthcare, and, having taken cadaver lab, have actually held the female reproductive system in my hands, not to mention that I owned one (yes, now past tense), so that was completely inappropriate and condescending. I finally switched to my current OBGYN, who actually believed me when I said I was in pain- it turned out I had multiple softball-sized cysts. I ended up with a hysterectomy and am now happy to be pain free. If you're seeing him to have a baby, good for you. If you have any other concerns, I suggest you get a second opinion.  Respond

08/01/12 5 5 5 5 He is the best OB doctor I have ever met.He was my doctor for two of my kids after I had a horrible experience with a 3 different OB doctors with my first child.Dr Lawrence is kind, understanding and very patient. Unlike every doctor I have evr dealt with, he actually calls his patients back and answers their questions. I can recomend him to every woman looking for a doctor.

12/06/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Lawrence was my wife's OB through a miscarriage and healthy pregnancy. He is absolutely one of the best doctors there is, in any specialty. Knowledgeable, friendly, hard working, available when you need him. He reassured us when things went wrong, and patiently coached us through the difficulties of going through a full term your first time. We've since moved from Seattle, and our only regret with this guy is that we won't be able to have him for our next kid. Fantastic doctor, highly recommended.

18/10/09 4 4 5 4 I would definitely refer everyone to see Dr. Lawrence. He was my OB for both pregnancies and he was very caring, knowledgeable, friendly and trustworthy. He followed up my test results, made phone calls, and went the extra miles to make sure I understand what was going on. All my friends who have had him shared very positive experiences.

13/07/09 3 4 4 5 As a person, Dr. Lawerence is excellent. The one thing we didn't really like was that it always appeared that he was in a rush. The other comments said he was always willing to go the extra mile, but our experience has been rushed on almost every OB visit. Another thing is that, now that we think about it, almost every OB appointment was just chatting and a measurement of the stomach. NOTHING ELSE. We read in books that there should have been at least other things done and looked at (e.g. breast and other parts) just in case... Nothing...  Respond

13/03/07 5 5 5 We were very happy to have Dr. Lawrence as our OB through our first pregnancy! He was always helpful, answered any questions I had, and even took the time to get extra info mailed out to me. I very much appreciated the card he sent after our daughter was born. I only wish he would have been available to deliver her. I would and have recommended him to others!  Respond

08/03/07 5 5 5 I have had this doctor for all 3 of my pregnancies and child births and he is amazing. He genuinely cares about his patients. He is laid back and friendly and conversational. He makes you feel at ease and never makes you feel stupid for asking questions. He will take as much time as you need to make sure that you understand everything you need to know. Sometimes he even calls you personally to make sure you're doing okay. He sent us a thank you card after each of my children were born. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!  Respond
