Ratings for Dr. Maureen Lawlor
Dr. Lawlor is an incredibly intelligent and compassionate woman. Dr. Lawlor treats my husband who is a dialysis patient. She is a very kind hearted and hardworking person. On countless very sad occasions, she, with her wide smile, boosted our low spirits and moral. Yes, the Dr. can be a bit late sometimes, but I know it is because of her very busy schedule and her high level of care is most definitely worth the wait. My husband and I give Dr. Lawlor our highest and warmest regards.
Dr. Lawlor is the best doctor I've visited in Pittsburgh. She obviously has a lot on her plate but she balances it all with amazing precision. She is not only the hardest working doctor I've ever seen, but also the most caring. She has helped me through so many obstacles that I can barely begin to thank her. She cares for every patient and tries her hardest to be on time even though she has an extreme amount of work piled on her. You can tell she loves her job and loves her patients as well. Superb job Maureen!
On my most recent visit, it was pure chaos. I don’t know if maybe another doctor in the practice didn’t show up and Dr. Lawlor was maybe covering their patients along with her own but 10 minutes before my appointment time there were 2 people still waiting. I didn’t get seen until 45 minutes later. Dr Lawlor appeared drained when she got in my room.She rushed the whole visit. She was very rude and acted as if any patient questions would not be tolerated. She left the room to get a lab order and when she returned she told me that they would follow up with the results (of course while she was sighing).I started to ask her a question and she walked out the exam room and answered the question as she was walking down the hallway. I didn’t even hear the response. I honestly don’t even remember her saying goodbye or have a nice day. I left the appointment fighting back tears and feeling like an insurance number.I was very uncomfortable and very doubtful that I will return for my follow up.
DR. MAUREEN LAWLOR is a very compassionate person who redefines tenderness for endstage renal patients. Our eyes swelled with worries and tears during the first hemodialysis sessions. But she was there, comforting us. She infused confidence on the modern dialysis methods offered by Fresenius. She works consistently to place the wellbeing of my wife first. She shows commitment to many patients whom we know. In 28 years of practice, she probably never showed tiredness. Treating dialysis patients takes tolls on human compassion. It's different when you seat for 4 hours every other day, rain or shine. You find yourself in quiet moods thinking of how life--either short or prolonged by the dialyzer... praying, somber and in most moments just thankful that there is a modern hemodialysis and a loving, intelligent doctor beside you, loving you, concerned about your health and once in a while you see her break a tear or two for you. She may not even know I wrote about her. PRISCILLA ALMAZAN
