Dr. Lawlis is really the "Top Doc." I've looked for years for a PCP that listens, asked the "right" questions. His "doc to patient " concern is very positive. we talk & he doesn't judge. We talk about the issues, & Dr Lawlis always includes me & my partner in how we are going to proceed with treatment or chronic problems.
