Ratings for Dr. Karen Lawson
Horrible!! staff and doctor. Refused to see me when i told her it was an emergency, scheduled my appointment so late the next day i was unable to get see the specialist i needed to that day. the next day (now three days later) I awoke to karen discussing my medical condition with my girlfriend at my front door.(so unprofessional) doctor/patient confidentiality?? she said it was urgent that i saw a doctor that day. i had been telling her this for two days now. when i suggested it was inappropriate to discuss my medical condition at the front door way of my apartment, meaning either come in so my neighbors can't hear or i can meet you in your office, she scurried off without ever speaking with me. when i called to speak with her she gave me grief about how i was representing her when i go see whomever she referred me to and this is a direct quote "i don't give everyone a referral its only for the patients i care about. if i don't care about you, i tell you to look in a phone book." This last comment was unreal!! (So unethical) doctors are not suppose to play favorites they are suppose to provide the same treatment and the best possible treatment for every individual they see. Karen's performance was so poor i can't imagine how bad it would have been if she didn't "care about me"
I used Dr. Lawson for cosmetic fillers and found she did a pretty good job. But, her prices are extremely high and she wanted to continue adding fillers after I had already paid a substantial amount of money. In the end, I am seeing a cosmetic surgeon now and I find that he is much more knowledgable and his prices are substantially lower.
She is never punctual, seems distracted and unorganized during visits. Clearly the cosmetic services offered are pushed, but I wouldn't go to her for that, and am considering another doctor overall because she doesn't seem to be present or concerned with my medical care.
