since I didn't have a problem I didn't see Dr Lawton but I had a good visit with Monica Riley.
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.

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

NPA Monica Riley has always done a good job at explaining procedures and findings.
Sep 27, 2018
Ms. Riley was excellent. A fine addition to Dr. Lawton's staff.
Sep 25, 2018
she was very considerate in my grief over my father's death, in a previous visit. She took quite a bit of time to explain to me what happened with him, and how it would not probably happen with me. she gave me time to sit and talk with her and did not rush away and leave me sitting. She truly helped me over one of the worst periods in my life
Sep 20, 2018
NP was very nice. Very knowledgeable and professional. One suggestion I would make would be to have the NP summarize whatever information she needed to share and then ask the patient if he/she had any questions. NP was quite talkative and I sometimes felt like I had to interupt her to ask my questions. When I did ask, however, she was very helpful.
Sep 20, 2018
This is an area you could work on. Waited 30+ minutes before I saw anyone. Never told there would be a delay. Also, my appointment was made with Dr. Lawton. Never saw him. Was seen by NP. Very nice, but not who I was expecting.
Sep 20, 2018
Nurses who took my blood pressure and NP were all very nice and professional.
