Dr. Lawhead is the most knowledgeable and caring doctor that I have ever met. He takes time with his patients and explains all that is happening. His answers all of your questions with concern about your well being and your understanding. I trust him to know the best course of treatment for my cancer. His staff is always friendly and helpful. I would recommend him to everyone.

Excellent, Caring Physician

Dr. Lawhead was my GYN oncologist for 5 years. Outstanding physician with impeccable ethics, morals and values. Very compassionate and caring. Treats whole patient - including family - with great compassion. Dr. Lwahead operated on me 4 times and always took excellent care of me. He purposefully surrounds himself with excellent, professional and caring folks.Would highly recommend Dr. Lawhead, without reservation.

Went over all of my ct scans and x-rays with me. Showed them to me on the computer and explained things thoroughly to help me make the most informed choice I could make. Took time to make certain my husband and I understood our options. An extraordinary physician, with a very competent office staff.

My referral to Dr. Lawhead was because of a misunderstanding by the scheduler in my GYN's office as to who my health insurance company is. Since the scheduler mistakenly believed that I had a particular insurance, and since she knew that the local gynecological oncologist did not accept that type of insurance, she went to the next closest physician on her list, Dr. Lawhead, whose office is two hours from my home. When I realized why I was to travel all the way to Atlanta for my care, I laughed and thought, Great! This will give me an excuse to see sights, visit museums, and shop at Trader Joes, The DeKalb Farmers Market (less than 2 miles from Dr. Ls!), and Whole Foods. During my first visit, I realized that the mistake was really a gift from God. Dr. Lawhead is the person, the physician you want to care for and fight with you in your personal war, and DeKalb Medical is the place in which you want to stage it. Dr. Lawhead spends as much time with you as you want and need hours, even to 1) ensure you understand what is going on with your body and what the plan of action is, 2) ensure you understand him/who he is, and 3) ensure that HE understands YOU. During this first appointment, he discusses, in full, all of the different options for treatment that you have and together, you decide the plan for your particular case. His bedside manner (you always sit and talk in his office the exam room is just that for exams, ONLY!) is wonderful warm, funny, and compassionate. It is apparent that Dr. L. truly likes and appreciates women. He gets us (or at least does his darndest to), and really loves and admires who we, women, are. As a whole, and each of us separately, too. Im usually more comfortable with a female GYN because, after years as a patient, and as an RN working in GYN and Emergency Medicine (which entails a LOT of OB/GYN!), I think that men cant or wont ever truly understand what we go through/are going through. Many try, but I also believe a large proportion of male GYNs, no matter how caring they may be, think women exaggerate and discount much of what we report. I have never felt like that about Dr. Lawhead. Before my surgery he came and spoke with my husband and me, he held my hand and walked my stretcher down to the OR, talked with me until my anesthesia went to work, spoke at length with my husband after the surgery, left instructions to be paged when I was awake and lucid, and then came and talked with me for a long while. His concern was obvious all along, and I know that my disease and treatment are nothing compared to most of his patientsbut hes never let me think that he sees it/me in that manner.
