Jun 10, 2019
One appointment with Dr. Lawton was canceled the day I was scheduled. I was rescheduled and specifically asked to see Dr. Lawton. I was surprised with the NP came in to see me.
Jun 10, 2019
This NP treated me on two occasions as if I were elderly or a child. She did not pick up on the fact neither by my questions or responses to her explanations I have medical knowledge. She repeated herself and gave elementary explanations. I do not have confidence in this provider who also discussed hypertension with me although to my knowledge I have not yet been diagnosed with hypertension.
Jun 10, 2019
I will recommend this practice for the care I have received from Dr. Lawton. I would caution anyone I recommend when seeing the NP.

May 10, 2019
There are times when would like to see Dr. Lawton but unable to because of his schedule, especially when coming in with a problem.

She is excellent. She explains everything very well.
May 2, 2019
As always, a good experience.
Apr 28, 2019
Though Ms. Riley was very nice, professional and knowledgeable, I would have preferred to see Dr. Lawton. I thought that was who I was going to see, as I'm a fairly new patient and have only seen him a couple of times.

Ms. Riley is an excellent diagnostician, she diagnosed my pulmonary hypertension with an echocardiogram within 24 hours of my 1st visit with her by properly ordering the correct test! I had been struggling over two years, going from pillar to post, seeing multiple physicians,with no improvement to my shortness of breath! She is extremely attentive, asks he correct questions, & is a very skilled practioner! She is an absolute treasure!
Jan 24, 2019
