In good hands....

My wife and I went to Phelps Emergency Room this morning. My wife was so fearful. As soon Dr.Lawrence entered, a quiet confidence covered us all. He was reassuring, respectful, demonstrating his medical talent and abilities. He excels in interpersonal skills. You felt safe in the warmest and most caring of hands. Excellent isn't a sufficiently high rating for the services we received

Could not have been better

The most compassionate and intelligent ER doc we have ever seen. Spent 20 mins just going over the symptoms of why my wife was in, to better understand the best way to treat the issues. Excellent bedside manner and cared enough to admit my wife because he was unsure as to the complete reason for the symptoms.

Most compassionate doctor!

I brought my grandmother to the emergency room at phelps and had an experience like no other. Dr Lawrence was the most professional, compassionate doctor I've ever met. He really sits with you and tries to get an understanding every facet of your problem and makes every effort to solve it. He gives me faith in the healthcare system and in humanity.

Caring doctor

I was admitted to the ER at Phelps Memorial Hospital; he arrived after the CT scan and other tests were completed and he ordered a few more. His bedside manner was excellent and he explained everything I needed to know.Only wish he could be my primary care doctor.
