Dr. Lawrence spent well over an hour with us. She encouraged us, gave us information, educated us on our daughter's condition.

I trust Dr. Lawrence.
Patient | November 3, 2016

Very friendly, concerned for well being, educated and experienced with cerebral palsy so I was very comfortable with knowledge and referrals for next steps and ongoing care.

Dr. Lawrence & staff were all wonderful!
Patient | August 9, 2016

I feel talked down to at times and like she doesn't fully listen to me. She also doesn't explain new developments and I have to find out when I get the visit summary.

I wish she would not worry so much about the need for referrals. I needed her to contact the PCM for them but instead she gave me a Rx.

Dr. Lawrence took her time, and worked very well with our daughter.
Patient | February 24, 2016

Dr. Lawrence did not spend enough time with us. Ordered numerous kinds of therapy which was overwhelming. Ordered a swallow study and we didn't truly understand why. Didn't explain things well and acted like she didn't have time to talk with us. Didn't explain why she thought our child was delayed and didn't show much affection or emotion for our journey and struggles. Said our child may be autistic and quickly moved on. Autism is incredibly emotional for parents and her care was very lacking.

Impressed with the care and information provided. Dr. Lawrence covered all aspect of care which include referral for swallow evaluation and use of walk aide/constraints therapy.
