Dr.Lawson has been tremendous help throughout my fertility journey. Since the time when I first meet her and was going through egg freeze to my fIrst IVF with donor and unfortunately loss of my second trimester pregnancy. She has helped me more than I will be ever able to thank her.

Dr. Lawson has provided me with an opportunity to engage in shared decision making around fertility treatment which is an opportunity I have not been afforded with my physician in the same clinic. Dr. Lawson takes an evidence-based approach to treatment across presenting problems (not just those related to fertility). As a scientist, she is also quite knowledgable about the literature around fertility, and it is helpful to have discussions around that literature that the physician doesn't have time for.

Dr Lawson goes above and beyond for her patients, including adding a session on when needed outside of her template if there is an unavoidable gap in care otherwise. Her expertise as a research scientist, combined with her role as a psychologist enables her to provide very clear and objective data for her patients when making really critical life decisions. She has helped me look at life more objectively and with healthier decision making tools. Dr Lawson is one of a kind.
