  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.

I was not asked ahead of time about questions being asked without my mother. The nurse used words that my mother felt were inappropriate or should have been talked about with her alone. The discussion about a period that I am uncomfortable speaking with someone other than my mother about.

Very long delay (52 minutes) with no apology when entering the room. A "sorry" will go a long way, as I understand all providers are very busy assisting other patients.

We have used Dr. Lawrence for the past 15 years. This past year I have been disappointed with his concern for some medical issues my children are having. I'm sad to say after 15 years we will be seeking a new pediatrician.
