Dr Lawton is a outstanding doctor
Apr 29, 2022
Dr. Lawton is an excellent doctor and I have a very high degree of confidence in him. Very knowledgeable and professional. One constructive comment would be that it did not appear he had reviewed and/or was familiar with the details, including test results, from my recent hospitalization at the Grande Strand hospital. I confirmed with Dr. Lawton's staff, prior to meeting with him, that Grande Strand had forwarded all my records.
Apr 28, 2022

Shockingly rude
Jan 1, 2022
My experience with the practice has been great, with no complaints. My only complaint is the difficulty of getting to see Dr.Lawton. I met with him on my first visit, several years ago but since then I have always only been able to see his associate physician as he has been in the hospital on some other work.I signed up with this practice to see Dr. Lawton because of his well deserved high reputation and would really appreciate being seen by him. I recognize the fact that his schedule is very,very busy, but mine isn't and I can make myself available at his convenience, and would truly appreciate being seen by him.Thank You

After taking EKG I was informed the doctor was involved in a procedure in the hospital opening area and would be delayed for 20 minutes or so. It turned out to be a little longer.

You set the record for prompt service! I arrived early and completed paperwork. You called me to the exam room right on time (maybe even a little early). 2 nurses took the vitals. When they left, they said the doctor would be right in. They weren't kidding! He came in about 2 minutes later. It seemed like I was in and out in 10 minutes. From a patient's perspective this is a miracle--it never happens. Kudos!
